Why are woodworker's increasingly adding a laser engraving system from Epilog to their workspace? It's because the versatility of the laser can't be matched when creating a woodworking project.
Wood engraving is one of the most popular applications for the laser because it can encompass so many different products. From cabinetry to photo frames to knife handles, Epilog's laser systems are used in almost every woodworking category you will run across. Whether you are working with hardwoods, veneers, inlays, mdf, plywood, walnut, alder, or cherry, you can engrave amazingly intricate images with a laser system.
Can I engrave all types of wood?
The laser works extremely well with all types of woods, from maple to exotic hardwoods. Each displays a different quality when engraved. While a maple plaque may give you a lighter engraving, cherry can give you very rich, dark colors where engraved. Trying out different woods can give you very different effects with the same image.
What size of wood piece can I engrave?
Laser systems range in capacity from 16" x 12" (406 x 305 mm) to 40" x 28" (1016 x 711 mm). If you can fit your product in the engraving table, you can engrave your item!
Unlike CNC machines that require extensive programming, our CO2 lasers operate more like printers. Use any graphic software you like, import your image, and print it to the laser. It's incredibly easy to set up any custom job in minutes.
How detailed of engraving can you achieve on the laser when engraving wood?
The Aztec Calendar says it all. At 100% speed, the laser can still achieve these engraving results. No tricks, no special optics, just Epilog Laser quality.
Do you have a very detailed image to engrave, try it on any other laser, then engrave it on an Epilog Laser. You'll see a higher quality engraving from the Epilog system, as well as higher speed engraving. We'll put our engraving quality up against anyone's. You can achieve this same quality on any of our laser systems, from the Epilog Zing Starter Series to the Legend to the top-of-the-line Fusion Series.
