Laser cutting is a technology that uses a laser beam to cut materials. The laser beam is generated by a device called a laser engraver. The engraver produces a focused beam of light that vaporizes the material it meets. This process can be used to create permanent marks on surfaces or to remove layers of material from surfaces.

Laser cutting is different from traditional methods like chiselling because it uses localized energy to generate heat. This means that the heat is concentrated in one area, making it possible to mark or remove surface material without affecting the surrounding area. Laser cutting also has the advantage of being able to cut through thicker materials than other methods, making it ideal for use on industrial applications.
