There are many benefits to owning a laser engraver. Many laser engraving machine owners ask themselves, "Of all the materials that can be laser processed, which ones will produce the best results while being lucrative for my business?" Enter bamboo laser engraving.
Bamboo is a versatile material that has historically been used in everything from houses to bed sheets.
Strength and reproducibility are of course just a few reasons to choose this versatile material for your laser engraving projects. Bamboo is a very light wood. It's soft enough to get beautiful deep carvings, yet hard enough not to scorch and burn.
So, what creative and profitable laser products can you create with bamboo? With the Atomstack Laser Engraver, you can use bamboo to do everything you would normally do with any other wood material. However, bamboo's history and its unique properties provide a higher perceived value that consumers are willing to pay.
Real bamboo cutting boards make lovely personalized gifts. They are durable enough to stand up to everyday use and are beautiful enough to be displayed as a decorative piece in any kitchen. Laser engraving these eco-friendly panels is a fairly simple process that can produce stunning results.
Bamboo laser cutting
Laser cutting of bamboo is similar to cutting any other wood. Cut lines are uniform, darkened and virtually free of soot. The board can be impregnated with oil before or after the laser cutting process to give the product a darker appearance and stronger wood image as well as durability and protection from moisture. The boards are relatively uniform in thickness, making them suitable for wooden boxes and other 3D products built from parts that must be precisely assembled.
Applications - wooden boxes, wooden pallets, furniture, product development, display installations, etc.
Bamboo laser engraving
Laser engraving on bamboo produces darker graphics similar to engraving on other kinds of wood. Combining laser cutting and laser engraving in one product opens up many possibilities, such as producing a box made of bamboo with a logo engraved on one or more sides. If you want to engrave small text, bamboo is not the right choice as the grain of the wood may reduce its readability.
APPLICATIONS - Branding of bamboo products such as wooden puzzles, branded wooden boxes for luxury packaging, branded bamboo trays, restaurant menu holders, decorative accessories, wooden handles for bags, wooden toys, etc.
