This servo-controlled, high speed, in-line laser cutting system is capable of producing parts that were once considered "unmachinable" with mechanical tooling. The laser beam is computer numerically controlled (CNC) and cuts parts at speeds up to 100 feet / minute. An infinite variety of part dimensions can be supplied as individual pieces or kiss-cut on a roll. Whether you need micro-parts, micro-perforation, prototypes or production products, this technological advancement overcomes the limitations of mechanical tooling.
No tooling required
Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) processing means parts can be created from your drawings or computer files.
No design limitations
Laser cutting overcomes the limitations of mechanical tooling. This allows design engineers the freedom to specify part dimensions that optimize finished goods.
The high-speed motion system manipulates the laser beam at a rate of 200 inches/second to cut parts to your desired dimension while processing material at speeds up to 100 feet/minute. This process keeps specialty part costs down and helps meet both prototype and full scale production requirements.
A variety of part dimensions on the same roll
In-line laser processing allows us to provide you with a variety of parts on the same roll or sheet. If you require a variety of die-cuts for a single unit, they can all be supplied right next to each other.
Eliminate adhesive flow
Many of today's specialty fastening adhesives tend to flow (bond back to itself) after traditional die-cutting. Laser cutting actually vaporizes the kerf where mechanical die-cutting only displaces the substrate. By vaporizing material, laser cutting prevents cut parts from bonding back to themselves when matrices (scrap material) are left with the finished product. In-line laser procedures also allow matrix removal on many materials that were once inseparable. By removing surrounding scrap material from your finished parts, productivity can be increased with automated application processes.
The in-line laser digital process is capable of producing an infinite number of part dimensions. The process satisfies needs created by the trend toward miniaturization of finished goods. Micro-parts and micro-perforations solve problems that other converters are telling you can't be resolved. Laser cutting eliminates adhesive flow problems associated with butyls and other aggressive double coated adhesive tapes.
In-line laser cutting can be combined with other capabilities such as: printing, lamination, and adhesive coating to create almost any adhesive part you can design.
