Cut and engrave badge using laser mashine.

Red line - cut. Black line - engrave.

Information for inversion engraving

At first I put a dark stain on birch plywood, then varnish, dry, grind.
Or, you can just paint wooden blank.

Objective: Remove the top thin layer of paint from wooden blank and not burn wood.

Parameters for 40 watt laser machine:

  • Speed - 300 mm / sec
  • Maximum power - 13%
  • Interval - 0.1 mm

You may need to experiment with parameters.

After a quick and low-power engraving almost no soot. Soot from the cutted edges of the product can be easily removed with a damp sponge soaked in normal water.

Effect of inversion engraving is stunning.
In this way, we are doing many projects.
