If you are trying to make a single-pass cut, you can use the following very general and arbitrary guide of material thickness (MDF) for Epilog lasers:
3 – 4 mm = 30 Watt
4 – 7 mm = 45 Watt
7 – 9 mm = 50 Watt
9 – 12 mm = 60 Watt
Assumes full power, a clean & properly focused lens, and a speed that doesn’t overly burn the material.

I know a lot of you cut MDF regularly with laser cutters. What's the maximum thickness they can go through? Where have you been finding the sheets? Most of the stuff at the box stores appears too thick, and Epilog's site doesn't seem to yield any answers...
I know it varies, but I'm sure there's a ballpark?
