Laser cutting all
materials, you will notice a grain, or direction of material.
This applies to all materials including Acrylic colour or clear,
aluminium raw or brushed, metal and all other materials that you
can laser cut.

Unless you intend to paint or powder coat a
laser cut section, letter or graphic, it is best recommended to set up
your laser cut file in one direction only.
When setting your files ready to suit
laser cutting material you can nest the images together
allowing a minimum 8mm free space. Do not alter the grain
direction of the material UNLESS the finished laser cut
letters or shapes will be further processed eg. Powder
coated or Brushed etc.
This diagram shows how the
QuickSmart Design Team would typically setup a file
ready for laser cutting. On the left is a nested group
of lettering, on the right is an example of reducing the
material size BUT incorrectly altering the grain
direction positions. We take extreme care to balance the
cost of your signage with minimising the material usage.
- From the image above,
the left image of laser cut nesting reduces the overall
material usage, it does not reduce the line distance
(path length) that will be cut.
The right image shows the possibility of further
reducing the material usage...however, the grain
embedded into every material has been rotated.
If this signage was continued, upon installation of the
signage, the difference in grain would be slightly
noticed. QuickSmart Signs recommend not changing the
material grain unless further processing is chosen.
IMPORTANT TIP: WHEN
CUTTING TIMBER LOGO OR LETTERING... AVOID ALL NESTING SO
THAT THE NATURAL GRAIN IN THE TIMBER'S GROWTH PATTERN IS
CONSISTENT WITH THE SIGNAGE.
CNC laser cutting is a
process that uses an intense laser beam to cut part shapes out of
sheet material. The parts remain flat because the heat distortion is
CO 2laser cutting is a
process that uses carbon dioxide as the main lasing medium. CO 2
lasers use a mixture of gases such as helium and nitrogen, with CO 2
being the most predominant to create a cut quality similar to that
of milled edges of mild steels and can operate in continuous wave
(CW) or pulses.
cutting is the process of ablating target materials, typically low
vaporization temperature and low thermal conduction materials,
through direct vaporization.
