Laser cutting is an efficient and accurate method for producing holes in various materials. The technique works by directing a high power laser beam at the object. A small part of the beam strikes the substrate, cutting through the material.

This technique is used to cut through sheet material and to cut openings in various materials. It can be applied to virtually any hole size. Unlike other techniques, it requires little tooling and allows for highly complex cuts.

It can be used to create prototype circuits or to fine-tune performance. In addition, the technique is faster than conventional tooling and requires a relatively low amount of power. With its versatility and accuracy, laser cutting can help to reduce production costs.

For many applications, PTFE (also known as Teflon) is a suitable material for laser cutting. However, it should be noted that the material can produce harmful fumes.

PTFE has several uses, including as an anti-coating and gasket material for kitchenware. It also has excellent insulating properties. When heated, it can emit COF2, which can be absorbed through skin or lungs. PTFE has also been linked to a number of adverse health effects.

If you plan to use a laser to cut PTFE, you should be aware of the potential health risks. You must perform your own risk assessment of the material and ensure that adequate ventilation and fume extraction are in place.

Another good alternative to PTFE is Polyethylene Foam. This material cuts cleanly and produces little smoke.
