What is Laser Cutting?
Laser cutting is a technology that uses a laser to vaporize materials, resulting in a cut edge. The main materials we laser at Tinkd are plywood and acrylic, but there are others that can be used too. You can use the laser cutter to precisely cut or etch your chosen materials to create items like jewellery, signage, models and jigsaws – the options are only limited by your imagination! A full induction will be provided to paying members.

We have one of the biggest laser cutter and engraving machines in Tauranga with a generous 1300x900mm working area. Powerful enough to handle all projects and jobs.
