Application Newsletter – Laser Cutting Natural Leather
of natural leather is now widely used in the shoe and garment industry,as well as many other industries. The high flexibility and affordability of a LaserPhotonics' CO2 laser system enables dramatic cost reductions in these industrieswith less waste. Speeds are very high and the cut quality, including edgesmoothness, far exceeds that which can be achieved by previous techniques, asthere is less material distortion and discoloration.
Leather markings can also be produced with fantastic results thanks toadvancements in Laser Photonics’ CO2 laser systems. This application isexperiencing a strong development, especially in the clothing, footwear and bagindustry. High quality production is now available to better produce designers'creations.
Blue leather with 3-mm thickness was markedand cut by a 10 watt CW
with 3.75-inch focal length lens. The speed of 50 mm/secwas used for etching surface with one pass andthe speed of 10 mm/sec was set for cuttingthrough the sheet with three passes. Total cycletime for cutting and marking whole part took 6min 40 sec. For reducing the cycle time, thehigher power CO2 laser was recommended tobe used in the application
The SBM 1200M
comes equipped with CO2 lasercombining flying optics with a precision Direct Drive motion system. CO2 laserequipped system provides highly accurate cutting, welding, engraving and markingcapabilities for multiple materials.
