BANOVA® undergoing laser testing

Laser cutting of light plywood made of balsa veneers

Minimum weight with at the same time high stability – this characterises the high-quality plywood panels of BANOVA®. We have tested the natural and sustainable material BANOVA® PLUS made from balsa wood for laser applications. Application of the lightweight building boards is very versatile and provides simple handling with regard to production and logistics.

eurolaser has taken a closer look at this material. Its properties during laser processing were tested in eurolaser’s own application lab.

Benefits of cutting BANOVA® with CO2 lasers:

  • Contact-free processing – minimum material waste, no breakage
  • Finest details and radius-free inner contours possible
  • No chippings – less dirt and effort
  • No clamping or fixing of the workpiece necessary
  • Burr-free edges – no reworking necessary
  • No tool wear
  • Available automation functions for optimum production utilization

Field of application

Compared to conventional wooden panels, BANOVA® PLUS is up to 70% lighter. It impresses with high thermal insulation, great adhesive properties and naturalness. Typical applications for BANOVA® PLUS are furniture, interior linings and decorative front panels.

BANOVA® PLUS produced very good results in the laser test and can be excellently machined on our high-end laser systems.
