10 watt laser on a flat beer cozy

Can a 10 watt Ortur Diode laser engrave/burn/etch on a standard flat beer cozy??? If it can I would suspect a low power setting with a high speed setting??

Friends do not let friends mix beer and lasers.

This type cozy. The more I looked at the cozy the more I think no. But, I’m going to try just for the hell of it!!

Damn!!! That means I have to sell my lasers??? Please not that! Oh, the inhumanity… :grinning: :rofl: :upside_down_face:

I’m sure it will burn through the surface of the fabric, exposing the inner foam. I doubt it will be as nice looking as the screen print example pic, but hey those things are cheap and experimenting is fun. Go for it!

I think the same Tim. I’m just going to put it on the “try sometime” list.

It seems synthetic fabric, cut a little and test if it catches fire easily with a lighter.
Then use low power on laser and be prepared.

Try the products on this page. I have some tumblers that have a silicone sleeve for laser engraved. Those turn white on exposure to laser.

Thanks, Jim. I will check that out. Have had some inquires about doing these type of cozy’s.

Good idea. Thank you!!

Did some test burns on a flat beer cozy and surprisingly it turned out good. I used a 10 watt Ortur diode laser and used a speed min/in of 85 and power from 10% to 45% with 5% jumps in between tests. At around 25% I started to see a little bit of smoke. At 45% the laser was oh so close of burning through the foam. At least I know now that I can etch/burn/engrave a foam beer cozy.
