Don’t Cut Vinyl With A Laser Cutter

As a public service and in response to a googled search that hit on this blog entry The Other Industrial Machines with the question of, “Is It Dangerous to Cut Vinyl With a Laser Cutter?” my technical source says, reprinted with his approval:

Dave @ CNC says:
yes, releases chlorine gas, not good for the workers or
environment, usually will void warranty of machine also
Dave @ CNC says:
voids warranty (even) if worker survives…

Dave @ CNC says:
yep, polyvinyl chloride…PVC for short

Well, there we have it, straight from the machine manual (via a busy worker).

Don’t cut vinyl on your laser cutter!!!

About Mary Beth

I am fascinated by changing patterns and colored threads. I sew garments and am teaching myself to machine knit. Since selling the building that housed my workrooms, The Stitchery, I'm searching for a place to set up the knitting machines again. There must be room here somewhere!

  1. You know MB – I will never come close to a laser cutter – but I’m really glad you answered this question! I had been wondering why actually.
