Laser cutting of cardboard and paperboard
Paper, especially corrugated paper, is a commonly used processing material in the woodworking engraving machine processing field. It can usually be made into greeting cards, invitation cards and paper artworks with exquisite patterns and shapes. The entire processing process is fully automatic. And the router can quickly realize the processing of various complex graphics. It can also achieve fast processing speed and flat and neat edges. During the cutting process, the CNC milling machine will not produce any tool wear or mechanical deformation. Therefore, the loss of paper material is small and the output is higher, thereby maximizing the use of raw materials. After CNC milling, the paper machine has high precision, fine effect and strong 3D feeling. Therefore, CNC engraving technology has been popularized in the paper processing industry of greeting cards, paper lampshades, packaging boxes and other artworks.
CO2 Laser Cutting Machine
The major functions of the CO2 laser engraving machine are to cut and engrave non-metallic materials, such as wood, acrylic, PVC, plastic, paper, fabric, textile, leather, stone, glass, etc. The laser power is optional from 50W, 70W, 100W, 130W, and 150 W based on different cutting and engraving depths. A rotary device can also be added to engrave cylindrical parts, like glasses, trophies, etc.

High speed and filigree details through CO₂ laser systems
Paper laser cutter features
CNC paper laser cutter machine is a Co2 laser machine, it is good at soft non-metal materials cutting.
1. The paper laser cutter has an advanced control system and driver for stability and accuracy;
2. The laser head has a function of auto-focusing, adjusts the distance of the cutting head from the paper.
Pros & Cons of CNC paper Laser Cutter:
A paper laser cutter uses the laser beam as a knife to make cutting, it is a burning cutting, a non-contact cutting, so it makes cutting possible of high speed, high precision, very good at tiny and complex cutting. The cons of this machine are that it is a burning-cutting, for some materials, there may be a slightly burned border on the edge.
Material information for laser cutting and engraving of paper, cardboard and paperboard:
An important application for paper, cardboard and paperboard are the advertising and packaging industries as well as the arts and crafts. Pattern creation, modelling, individualised or personalised products and design articles are becoming increasingly important and demand utmost flexibility in production. In addition, paper is increasingly be used for technical applications (e.g. paper for isolation). The usual paper-based materials are formed by compressing or bonding and are mainly made of wood pulp or recovered paper. They largely consist of organic fibers and can be laminated, printed or coated. Here, the laser represents an ideal cutting tool. Laser cutting is particularly suitable for filigree details and individualisations.
