Laser Cutting and Engraving of Leather

Laser Solutions for Leather

Goldenlaser designs and builds CO2 laser machines specifically for the cutting, engraving and perforating of leather, making it easy to cut the desired size and shape, as well as intricate internal patterns. The laser beam also enables highly detailed engravings and markings that is difficult to achieve with other processing methods.

Applicable laser processes for leather

Ⅰ. Laser Cutting

Thanks to the ability to apply CAD/CAM systems to the design, a laser cutting machine can cut leather to any size or shape and the production is at standard quality.

Ⅱ. Laser Engraving

Laser engraving on leather produces a textured effect similar to embossing or branding, making it easy to customize or give the end product the desired special finish.

Ⅲ. Laser Perforation

Laser beam is ability to perforate the leather with a tight array of the holes of the certain pattern and size. Lasers can provide the most intricate designs you can imagine.

A basic guide to material information & laser techniques for leather

With the powerful CO2 laser machines from Goldenlaser, you can achieve precise cuts and engravings with ease, thanks to the laser technology.

Leather is a premium material that has been used for ages, but it is also available in current production procedures. Natural and synthetic leather are employed in a variety of industries. Aside from footwear and apparel, numerous fashion and accessories are also made of leather, such as bags, wallets, handbags, belts, etc. As a result, leather serves a special purpose for designers. Furthermore, leather is often employed in the furniture sector and automobile interior fittings.

Slitting knife, die press, and hand cutting are now used in the leather cutting industry. Cutting resistant, durable leather using mechanic tools produces considerable wear. As a result, the cutting quality deteriorates with time. The advantages of contactless laser cutting are highlighted here. A variety of benefits over traditional cutting processes have made laser technology increasingly popular in recent years. Flexibility, high production speed, the ability to cut complicated geometries, simpler cutting of bespoke components, and less wastage of leather make laser cutting more and more economically appealing to use for leather cutting. Laser engraving or laser marking on leather generates embossing and allows for intriguing tactile effects.

What kinds of leather can be laser processed?

Because leather readily absorbs CO2 laser wavelengths, CO2 laser machines can process almost any type of leather and hide, including:

  • Natural leather
  • Synthetic leather
  • Rexine
  • Suede
  • Microfiber

Typical applications of laser processing leather:

With the laser process, leather can be cut, perforated, marked, etched or engraved and can therefore be used in a wide range of industries, sush as:

  • Footwear
  • Fashion
  • Furniture
  • Automotive
