Denser types of wood require high-power laser systems. When cutting knotty wood material, it should be kept in mind that higher power laser cutting is required compared to the power needed to cut the base material. The cutting process should be carried out at a lower speed, ensuring the cutting of the knots.
High quality laser cutting of plywood involves more complicated processes than solid wood. The final quality of the cut depends on the type of wood, type of adhesive and the manufacturing technology used. For laser cutting, degummed plywood made out of softer types of wood is often preferred over birch plywood.
