    Is Your Material Not Listed?

    If you have a specific material in your production and want to know how it will react to being laser cut or engraved, please contact us to send a sample for us to test.

    Please note that the cutting depths and cutting speed for different materials will vary depending on the power and type of machine. This page is intended as a guide, and the exact cutting and engraving marking abilities of each machine will vary depending on its exact specification. For exact details, please contact GOLDEN LASER.
