Laser Cutting of Synthetic Textiles

Laser Cutting Solutions for Synthetic Textiles

Laser cutting machines from GOLDENLASER are extremely flexible, efficient and fast for cutting all kinds of textiles. Synthetic fabrics are textiles made from man-made rather than natural fibers. Polyester, acrylic, nylon, spandex and Kevlar are some examples of synthetic fabrics that can be processed particularly well with lasers. The laser beam fuses the edges of the textiles, and the edges are automatically sealed to prevent fraying.

Leveraging its many years of industry knowledge and manufacturing experience, GOLDENLASER develops, manufactures and supplies a wide range of laser cutting machines for textile processing. They are designed to provide textile product manufacturers or contractors with the state-of-the-art laser solutions to enhance their competitive edge and help them to meet end-use requirements.

Laser processing available on synthetic textiles:

laser cutting synthetic textile

1. Laser cutting

The energy of the CO2 laser beam is readily absorbed by the synthetic fabric. When the laser power is high enough, it will cut through the fabric completely. When cutting with a laser, most synthetic fabrics vaporize quickly, resulting in clean, smooth edges with minimal heat-affected zones.

2. Laser engraving (laser marking)

The power of the CO2 laser beam can be controlled in order to remove (engrave) the material to a certain depth. The laser engraving process can be used to create intricate patterns and designs on the surface of synthetic textiles.

3. Laser perforation

CO2 laser is capable of perforating tiny and accurate holes on synthetic fabrics. Compared to mechanical perforation, laser offers speed, flexibility, resolution and accuracy. Laser perforation of textiles is neat and clean, with good consistency and no subsequent processing.

The benefits of cutting synthetic textiles using lasers:

Flexible cutting of any shapes and sizes

Clean and perfect cutting edges without fraying

Non-contact laser processing, no distortion of material

More productive and high efficient

High precision - even processing intricate details

No tool wear - consistently high cutting quality

A wide range of different table sizes for a number of formats are available.

Extra-wide, extra-long, and extension working tables can be customized.

Double heads, independent double heads and galvanometer scanning heads can be selected to increase productivity.

Camera recognition system for cutting of printed or dye-sublimated textiles.

Marking Modules: Mark pen or ink-jet printing are available to automatically mark the cut pieces for subsequent sewing and sorting processes.

Complete exhaust and filtering of cutting emissions possible.

Material information for the laser cutting of synthetic textiles:

carbon fiber reinforced composites

Synthetic fibers are made from synthesized polymers based on raw materials such as petroleum. The different types of fibers are produced from widely diverse chemical compounds. Each synthetic fiber has unique properties and characteristics that suit it for specific applications. Four synthetic fibers - polyester, polyamide (nylon), acrylic and polyolefin - dominate the textile market. Synthetic fabrics are used in a broad variety of industries and sectors, including, apparel, furnishing, filtration, automotive, aerospace, marine, etc.

Synthetic fabrics are usually composed of plastics, such as polyester, that respond very well to laser processing. The laser beam melts these fabrics in a controlled manner, resulting in burr-free and sealed edges.
