MakersLAB.TV S2E16 - Laser Branding by Desktop CO2 Laser Machine Engrave Logo on Leather Tutorial

We have all gained an understanding of the fact that, most effortless way to customize leather is by engraving on it with a laser beam. Riley shows you exactly how to accomplish that by using Advanced Machinery’s TruCUT Desktop CO2 laser and engraving machine.

Laser engraving is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. This process involves the burning of a design into the material by a concentrated light. High-powered carbon dioxide laser is directed and focused on a piece of leather to engrave. In a nutshell, this method involves burning the surface of the leather in order to make a pattern. Laser engraving burns the surface of the leather to make a pattern.

Leather is an exceptionally popular material to laser engrave and cut for a variety of reasons. Raw leather sheets and premade leather products are relatively affordable, extremely durable, and have a high perceived value. Combining a laser and this versatile substrate can open the door to many profitable applications and opportunities, ranging from fashion accessories to promotional products and everything in between.

Leather is tough and offers strong resistance to every tool used on it. The only exception in this instance is a laser beam. Laser processing is contact-free. Another positive side effect is that the laser produces consistent results, without wear and tear. What happens is that the laser beam melts the material and the results are always clean, perfectly sealed edges.
