Leather Laser Engraving Cutting Machine for Sale
Leather is a very popular material for laser engraving and cutting for a variety of reasons. Raw leather sheets and prefab leather products are relatively affordable, extremely durable, and have a high perceived value, especially when lasers are used to personalize them for customers. Combining an ATOMSTACK laser with this versatile substrate can open the door to many lucrative applications and opportunities, from fashion accessories to promotional products and everything in between.
Suede is another soft leather that, while not as durable as the ones we mentioned above, can also be laser engraved and cut.
Synthetic or artificial leather is another popular option for lasers, available from many well-known manufacturers of laser-friendly substrates. If your faux leather doesn't clearly state that it's laser-safe, we recommend you check with the manufacturer to make sure it doesn't contain polyvinyl chloride (PVC), which can be harmful to you and your laser engraving machine.
The process of engraving or etching leather creates a dented effect and, depending on the leather surface, a distinct and clean contrast. Light-colored leather creates a pronounced color contrast, while sculpting darker leather creates a more subtle contrast. If you need dynamic color contrast, choose tan, beige or light brown leather.
The results of your engraving will mainly depend on the type of leather used and your laser speed, power and frequency settings. As with any material, we always recommend that you test different parameters until you get the results you want.
There are several benefits to using laser cutting leather. First, the laser provides a sealed cut that won't wear out or otherwise deteriorate. Second, unlike manual leather cutting tools like utility knives and rotary cutters, cutting leather with a laser is very fast, precise and, perhaps most importantly, consistent. Additionally, using laser cutting eliminates warping that sometimes occurs with hand tools.
With the Atomstack you can finish leather products with logos and designs. It is suitable both for laser engraving and laser cutting of leather. Common applications for the Atomstack are engravings on leather bracelets, shoes, purses or book covers.
The Atomstack is excellently suited to engraving on natural leather, suede and rough leather. It works equally well when engraving and cutting leatherette or nubuck and suede leather or microfiber materials, such as Alcantara.
