Laser Perforating in TruCUT Laser Software

Laser perforations look similar in many respects to hot needle perforations which place many precise holes in a web. Using the laser perforating feature create continuous holes for easy folder paper/plastic box projects or to generate an easy tear line for packaging or stamps.

Since 2019, we have been using the TruCUT RDWorks system. Please check out the RDWorks Training VideosRDWorks Training Videos here. The following information is for software prior to 2019.

What is Laser Perforating?

Laser perforate is a laser process method that drills holes on the cut line to create a perforated line. It's useful to create an easy- to-tear-line or fold line. Laser perforating is also called laser punching, laser boring or laser holing.

Laser Perforation Sample

Laser Perforating Settings

After choose the layer process method to "Perforate", double click on the layer identify colour bar, a dialog box will appear as:
Laser Perforating Options

Laser Power
How much laser power should be used in the punching process (unit: %).
Hold Distance
Distance between two adjacent holes, measured from centre to centre.
Radiation Time
Delay time of the laser head in punching a hole to make sure the material get boring through (unit: second, minimal 0.01s).
Perforate on Center
Punch a hole on the center of each closed figure (NOT along outline).
Air On
Turn air on while perforating.

Click the "..." button for advanced laser perforating settings. You can set laser power for the second laser tube, if you've purchased our co2 laser machine model with twin laser-tube.


The hold diameter is depending on the laser beam diameter. If you need larger holes than native laser perforating, please draw the holes and use laser cutting for any hole with a diameter bigger than that of a laser beam.
