Which materials can be cut with the CO2 laser?

Fabrics &textiles, And also rubber, leather, metals, Wood, paper, cardboard, plastic, and ceramics: the potential applications of the CO2 laser are endless.CO2 laser dates back to 1964: since then it has been successfully employed in several industrial sectors.

However, there are still lots of confusions about how the laser can be used. Which materials can be cut by the CO2 laser machine? What are the potential applications of the CO2 laser?

In this article we provide you with a list of materials that can be easily cut with the CO2 laser.

The materials that can be cut by the CO2 laser fall into three main categories:

  • Non-metals

- Fabrics and textiles

- Polymethylmethacrylate and other acrylic plastics

- Leather, wallpaper and similar products

- Food and plants

- Wood and derivatives

- Paper and derivatives

  •  Ferrous metals

- Mild steel

  • Non-ferrous metals

- Aluminium, titanium, and other metal alloys

All industrial sectors that need to process these different materials can thus use the laser CO2 for a faster, smoother, and more precise cutting process.
