The industry of textiles and leather gives several exciting tasks to laser engraving and cutting machines: such as decoration, manufacturing and tailoring, and also during embroidery laser cutting can be usefully applied when shape cutting the embroidered patterns.
With lasers such specific materials with industrial, technical, clothing or sport-related functions can be cut, which cannot be machined with other technologies at all, or not so effectively or in a less beautiful design. For instance sailcloth, carbon fiber fabrics, Kevlar, covers used in vehicles and in furniture industry, or the leather and artificial leather fabrics of shoes. Laser cutting works with heating, thus it gently melts the synthetic fibers, so we can say that cutting means hemming in the same time, and the textile will not lint.
Such fabrics can not only be cut, but also engraved: thick and furry textiles can be individualized by laser engraving, and dyed fabrics, such as denim get "shabby" patterns when engraving.
On denim clothes and leather goods even photo quality engravings can be placed.
Smaller clothing firms with "boutique" textile goods, artists of applied arts and even costume designers can find several special solutions with Folprint Laser Engraving.
