Wood Engraving - Jones Laser Craft

Wood Engraving

The laser settings for engraving wood will vary depending on the type of wood you are using, the power of your laser, and the desired depth of the engraving. However, as a general guide, you can start with the following settings:

  • Power: 80-100%
  • Speed: 200-400 mm/min
  • Focus: 0.5-1 mm

You can then adjust these settings as needed to achieve the desired results. For example, if you want a deeper engraving, you will need to increase the power and decrease the speed. If you want lighter engraving, you will need to decrease the power and increase the speed.

It is also important to note that the settings for engraving wood will be different than the settings for cutting wood. When cutting wood, you will need to use a higher power and a lower speed. This is because you need to cut through the wood, not just burn the surface.

When engraving wood, you can use a variety of unique designs. You can use simple text, images, or even complex patterns. The possibilities are endless.

Once you have created your design, you can send it to your laser cutter and start engraving. Be sure to wear safety glasses and gloves when operating a laser cutter.

Laser engraving is a terrific way to add an individualized touch to your wood projects. It is also a fantastic way to create unique and one-of-a-kind gifts.


Be Safe!
