Lasers have revolutionised the teaching of CAD/CAM in education and their versatility allows them to be used across the curriculum.
From fine engraving onto textiles to cutting acrylic and wood, the applications really are endless and allow students of all abilities to achieve fantastic results and push the boundaries when it comes to their design concepts.
The advantages of having a laser in place are clear but when asking our customers this is what they said:
Simple and rapid CAD/CAM potential
Extremely high levels of accuracy
easy production of complex shapes
fast cutting speeds
high quality cut edges and engraved results
rapid repetition – production potential
wide range of materials can be processed
small amounts of waste generated
no need for jigs &
quick set-up from design to final product
Design Technology is the most commonly used section of the curriculum to benefit from the integration of a laser but its uses can span across to textiles, food technology and resistant materials. The applications for a laser in a school really are limitless
Laser Cutting for Architectural Design
& Model Making
Create intricate architectural models using wood, acrylic or other materials
Many architectural firms and schools use our laser systems to create precise scale models that accurately represent topography, elevation and space. Our laser systems can make your models more realistic because laser systems can process materials traditional methods cannot. With a laser system, the doors in your model can be made of real wood. It’s as simple as creating a CAD drawing, processing the artwork with the laser system and assembling the finished architectural model.
Client proposals and presentations take on a new look with laser processing. Quickly and easily produce realistic, precision-cut scale models in-house. Scribe or cut mat board, acrylic and other plastics, wood, paper and most non-metals crisply and cleanly.
Architectural model making has become an important tool to produce client presentations and entire development models. Many model makers are realising the effectiveness of laser cutting in-house with the cost savings earned and the ability to rapidly make small design revisions or changes to entire building facades.
All our our machine range can be used to produce the most intricate of designs in a vast array of materials. For architectural laser cutting of wood, plastics, acrylic, laser engraved veneers, marquetry, profiling and relief of landscapes new developments and elevations.
The possibilities are endless!

Our laser systems also offer cutting edge features to manipulate and process images for laser engraving and marking. These features offer industry-leading quality and are exceptionally easy-to-use. This can be something as simple as as QR code laser engraving on acrylic, or laser photo engraving on wood and other organic materials.
Almost all materials can be processed, including laser engraving onto acrylic, vector laser marking of wood (including laser engraving MDF Plywood and veneers, ect)
Laser power can be controlled with ease, meaning the contrast and depth of an engraving is within the users complete control!
Laser Cutting paper & textiles
Cut patterns, produce appliqués and engrave fabric.
Laser paper cutting & crafts
The range of laser systems offered by One Touch Laser Ltd consistently provide much higher precision over a broader range of materials than other methods, and there is no need to learn new software.
Working with the software you already have, the cutting, etching and marking of intricate shapes on any kind of paper, including cardstock, vellum, and tracing paper can be performed with ease.
Paper Die Cutting
Create interesting annual reports and other collateral pieces. Precise cuts and sharp curves are easy to produce with a laser system.
Cut materials such as Mylar®, mat board, cardstock, oil paper, vinyl and other materials to create art stencils, home decor stencils and official stencils for spray-painting letters and numbers!
Laser cut denim and laser engraved textiles
Laser engraving produces a unique look on denim, and the contrast can be dramatic depending on the colour of the denim. Some clothing manufacturers use lasers to create "stone-washed" and "whisker" effects on jeans.
Textiles such as micro-suede and microfiber look exceptionally effective when laser engraved. Logos, text and artwork can be laser engraved into the material to add value to the items you already sell.
Virtually all materials (Please ensure compatibility with your laser first!) can be personalised using laser materials processing, this can allow for logos and intricate laser cuts to be produced on your choice of material.
Leather laser cutting is also a popular service, and can be used to personalise existing items, such as wallets, belts and clothing, as well as creating new designs using your laser for laser cutting leather.
Very little edge finishing is required an most materials, with textiles requiring absolutely no edge finish when removed from your laser cutting system. Furthermore due to the heat inherent in a finely focussed laser beam, no fraying of material will result as the material fibres are bonded at their ends.
Create product packaging without dies or tools!
Lasers are ideal for package development. A packaging idea can go from design to prototype in a single step and revisions can be made quickly without the expense or time allowance for new dies and cutters to be produced.
The range of lasers offered by One Touch Laser Ltd frequently outperform other packaging creation methods in flexibility, production and precision; create mock-ups, packaging, and point-of purchase displays with speed and accuracy.
Produce specialty die cuts on a variety of materials and perform multiple processes in the same work area, including through-cutting, perforating and scoring.
Eliminate post-finishing and add dimension to visual communication items.

Mix different materials such as wood and acrylic and create statement pieces that people will be queuing up to buy! Intricate details and cutting cannot be done any other way.
Make faster decisions and reduce proofing costs.
Taking an idea from design to final product in a single step. The UK made lasers we produce can process many types of material, you can quickly create prototypes that accurately represent your design concept, all without tooling costs. Fabricating prototypes in-house reduces proofing time and expense and makes it simpler to evaluate design changes and experiment with new materials.
Keep prototyping in-house and on time with a Universal laser system. Perform tight-tolerance cutting, marking and etching using any graphic software program, including SolidWorks® AutoCAD®, Illustrator®, and CorelDraw®, to quickly take an idea from concept design to finished product.
