The article reports on the significance of CO2 lasers on processing wooden substrates particularly sectioning or contour shaping of materials. It notes that these lasers are relevant to sign-making industry, for architectural modeling, in the building products market, cabinetry, for retail branding and other related businesses. It also mentions that these lasers cut, engrave or mark most plastics, ceramics, coated metals and some bare metals to make productive tool or every industry.
