What are the advantages of using a laser to cut polypropylene (PP)?

Polypropylene, or PP for short, is a thermoplastic and a perfect material to use for laser processing because it absorbs the energy of a CO2 laser very easily. This means that you can cut Polypropylene (PP) with a CO2 laser cutter, providing clean, smooth and non-discolored cuts while also being able to perform various other functions such as decorative etching or even marking messages onto products!

Additionally, polypropylene is well-suited to laser kiss cutting operations, which are primarily employed in adhesives and labels manufacturing processes.

Laser die cutting is much less expensive than traditional methods because there is no need to create expensive metal dies for individual projects. Instead, a laser simply traces the die line on the paper, removing the material and leaving a smooth precise cut.

Laser cutting produces clean and perfect cuts without the need for edge post-treatment or finishing.

Synthetic materials are left with fused edges during laser cutting, meaning no fringed edges.

Laser cutting is a non-contact manufacturing process which infuses very little heat into the material being processed.

Laser cutting is very versatile, meaning it can process many different materials and contours.

Laser cutting is computer numerically controlled and cuts contours as programmed into the machine.

Laser cutting can significantly reduce production time and produce consistent quality cuts every time.

Additional advantages of goldenlaser's laser cutting machine

Continuous and automatic processing of textiles directly from the roll, thanks to the vacuum conveyor system and auto-feeder.

Automatic feeding device, with auto rectifying deviation during fabrics feeding.

Laser cutting, laser engraving (marking), laser perforating and even laser kiss cutting can be performed on a single system.

Various sizes of working tables are available. Extra-wide, extra-long, and extension working tables can be customized on request.

Two heads, independent two heads and galvanometer scanning heads can be configured to increase productivity.

The laser cutter with integrated state-of-the-art camera recognition system can cut fabrics or labels precisely and quickly along with the outline of the pre-printed design.

Laser Cutting of polypropylene (PP) - Characteristics and Uses

Polypropylene is a thermoplastic polymer made from the polymerisation of propylene. Polypropylene has high heat resistance (greater than polyethylene), good elasticity, rigidity and the ability to absorb shocks without breaking. It also has a low density (making it light), high insulating ability and good resistance to oxidants and chemicals.

Polypropylene is used in the production of automobile seats, filters, cushioning for furniture, packaging labels and technical textiles. With a laser cutting machine, polypropylene can be cut incredibly precisely and the finest possible quality. The cut has smooth and well-finished edges with no presence of burns or charring.

The contactless process made possible by the laser beam, the distortion-free cutting that occurs as a result of the process, as well as the high level of flexibility and accuracy, are all compelling reasons in favor of the employment of laser technology in the processing of polypropylene.

Typical application industries of laser cutting polypropylene (PP)

Given these properties, polypropylene has countless applications in a variety of fields. It is fair to say that there is no industrial sector that does not use polypropylene in some shape or form.

The following is a list of the most common objects made of this material.
