"The new laser cutter is a great addition to the facilities at The Art House and is the perfect complement to the Print facilities"

60 Watt HPC Laser Cutter and Engraver
(Model Number LS6840)
Laser cutters are amazingly versatile and can fit in with most media and practices. Now the Art House has one which is accessible, affordable and that you can get the right level of technical support for you.
In May 2014, The Art House installed an HPC Laser Cutter which has he capacity to take larger panels for cutting and engraving, a maximum engraving speed of 1600mm per second and a cutting speed of up to 400mm per second. Basically, it's a pretty exciting piece of kit!
You can use the Laser Cutter not just for cutting, but for etching intricate details onto paper, perspex and wood.
Our Laser Cutter rates include the support of a technician. If you have used a Laser Cutter before, simply call and book yourself in for a session. We recommend that you bring your files pre-prepared, although we can offer support in converting files where needed (we charge for this time at the full Laser Cutter rate). We recommend that for cutting you bring your artwork on a memory stick as a Vector (Illustrator) file. For engraving, we recommend a JPEG or BITMAP image file.
If you are new to Laser Cutting, we recommend that you book onto one of our Introduction to Laser Cutting workshops to get to grips with what the machine can do. Details of the next course can be found HERE
