    Functionality of laser engraving and laser cutting of leather

    When applying laser engraving to leather, the laser beam produces an increase in temperature above the sublimation temperature of leather. The therefore evaporated leather escapes as smoke and leads the applied warmth away. The surrounding material will only stressed very lightly, which can cause slight discolouration, dependent on kind and thickness of the leather. On the plus side: Through the laser cutting the cutting edges will be sealed immediately and will not become frayed. The laser cutting of leather happens without contact between machine and material. Thus, no pressure marks appear on the leather and even complicated cutting patterns can be realized in a short amount of time.

    With the laser engraving the upper layer of the material will be removed. The result of the leather engraving is dependent of colouring, pretreatment and kind of leather. Besides natural leather and fell many kinds of synthetic leather, such as Clarino or Skai are suitable for laser engraving and laser cutting.
