Today, laser processing technology is used more and more widely in different industrial fields, and is known as the “universal processing tool”. The laser processing speed is fast, the surface of the object to be processed is smallly deformed, and various materials can be processed, and the material can be hollowed, cut, diced, welded, heat-treated, and the like.
The advantages of laser processing technology in the treatment of textile fabrics
Laser processing is fast and laser cutting fabrics are fast and efficient. The laser engraving machine can cut the speed of single-layer fabrics up to 1.4m/s, which is 4~5 times of the cutting speed of the cutting knife;
Non-contact processing, the laser-cut fabric is not deformed, the precision is high, and the incision is neat;
When the laser is cutting, the samples to be cut can be arranged next to each other, and the fabric utilization rate is high;
The laser beam has no obtuse angle and is controlled by the numerical control system. It is not restricted by any shape during operation;
The energy and moving speed of the laser beam can be adjusted. The heat-affected zone of the laser processing can be large or small, and the degree of heating of the laser heated zone can be strong or weak, which is suitable for most fabric processing;
Low operational requirements
The laser engraving machine is controlled by numerical control software, which is relatively easy to use, low requirements for operators, short training time, and automatic cutting can avoid manual erroneous accidents.
Practical application of laser processing technology on fabrics
The use of laser processing technology on apparel fabrics can enhance the originality of apparel design, and enhance brand recognition for apparel brands. For example, when people see a high-temperature press into a variety of wrinkled clothing, the first thing that comes to mind is Issey Miyake. Laser processing technology can make the silhouette of the garment create a layered feeling; make the dull texture produce light and shadow and dynamic, and play the role of emphasizing, exaggerating and guiding the line of sight. Fabrics treated with a reasonable laser process will have added value above the original fabric itself.
