Laser cut, as the name suggests, uses a laser to cut materials.
Meanwhile, laser cutting is a type of digital manufacturing technique using a large amount of energy generated by a laser, concentrated on a very small area, in order to cut or engrave a material.
There is a broad range of materials that can be cut with a laser: wood, plastic, cardboard, textile…
Laser cutting works by directing the output of a high-power laser through optics. They direct the laser beam generated on a small zone of the material. The material then either melts, burns, OR vaporizes away, leaving an edge with a good quality surface finish. The laser can cut until a 20mm-thick material, depending on the type of laser.
