Technology Week – lunchtime demonstration

Technology week continues at Nenagh college with a lunchtime demonstration on using our laser cutter.
Students were shown the process of setting up and running the laser cutter. This was an excellent way to highlight some of the possibilities available to students in the Technology department. The demo showed students the laser cutter cutting out a designed piece but also Rastering (the process of engraving an image onto a desired piece, The image is engraved by the laser machine line by line, point by point, similar to the way in which an inkjet printer applies ink, but instead of ink being applied, material is removed pixel by pixel by the laser.)
