AP Lazer to showcase laser cutting and engraving capabilities at woodworking event

Laser engraving specialist AP Lazer (Lansing, MI) will exhibit at the International Woodworking Fair (August 24-27, 2016; Atlanta, GA) to show woodworking businesses how to use the company's high-power laser machine for engraving and cutting wood, capturing the fast-growing personalization market trend to add high profit to any product.

Company founder Tong Li will give live demonstrations of operation and maintenance of the machine, and will highlight profit potential through lasers by making precise, intricate wood cuts and engraving photo-quality graphics onto wood surfaces.

Laser machines offer a low-cost personalization solution. Beyond the initial cost of the machine, there are few additional costs to implementation. They have low operating costs—electricity to run the machine and time spent creating and engraving custom images—and can operate as an additional step or be implemented directly into an existing production line.

A laser machine's cutting ability varies based on the type of wood, but can cut some woods up to 1/2in. thick, including Baltic birch, alder, MDF, and bamboo.

The company's high-power laser machines with large work areas, developed to engrave granite monuments, offer work spaces up to 48 × 36in. with no height and few weight restrictions. All of their machines use CO2 lasers with 80–100W of cutting and engraving power.
