High-End Laser Systems For Processing Personal Protective Equipment

With all those who risk their lives for others in the security industry on a daily basis, their own safety must be the top priority. There are different solutions from the textile sector for protecting the police, fire brigade, armed forces, or private security services. Thanks to their individual finishing, the fibers become stab-proof, bullet-proof, fire-resistant, or have other important properties. When it comes to processing these tactical textiles, eurolaser has long since made a name for itself around the world. The laser manufacturer from Lüneburg impresses in textile processing with specially developed solutions – regardless of the material. Specific laser systems for the textile industry make everyday life much easier for users.

Advantages of laser cutting technical textiles

With the thermal laser process, even demanding materials such as Aramid, Cordura® and Kevlar® can be cut with ease. In contrast to processing with mechanical tools, laser cutting produces a precise, tear-resistant and sealed cut edge. Additionally, fine details can be cut due to the small tool diameter of the laser. The laser can also be used to engrave inconspicuous and weather-resistant markings. Further, the laser scores particularly well with its contact-free cutting. This means that the cutting quality remains continuously high, as the tool does not become blunt. Tool changes and downtimes are eliminated.
eurolaser machines specially tailored to the textile industry offer even more benefits – from customised table sizes for all standard roll widths to optical position detection for printed materials. The automatic extraction system of the laser machines ensures clean air during laser cutting and prevents smoke from developing on the material. The user also benefits, as the downward extraction eliminates the need for fusing. The laser machine is controlled by software specially programmed for the textile processing industry.

Automated processing with Conveyor Systems

eurolaser has long had a market-proven solution for the automated processing of technical textiles: the conveyor system. This utilises a special table support concept. It consists of a stainless-steel rod mesh and is particularly suitable for flexible materials. On the one hand, it serves as a material carrier for the machining process and, at the same time, as a transport element for the conveyor system. In this way, a fully automatic machining process can be realised, which consists of various individual components.

The bale material is fed in via an automatic unwinding device. The unwinding system’s automatic edge control also ensures that the material is always positioned precisely so that it can be cut metre by metre with consistent quality and accuracy. The material is transported directly from the roll via the conveyor belt to the laser system, where it is cut, perforated or engraved. The advantage of this unwinding unit is higher machine utilisation thanks to the automatic material feed, while at the same time reducing the operator’s workload. Recording the remaining length via barcodes ensures that there is always enough material available for order processing. Sensors control the unwinding unit so that the defined position on the work surface is always precisely maintained. The benefits are optimum material utilisation and less waste.

Printing, marking, labelling and cutting in a single operation

In order to facilitate the further processing of textile blanks, it is often necessary to mark the individual parts. eurolaser offers various options for this work step. Depending on your requirements, you can choose between different alternatives. The Label Module for labelling the goods, the Ink Printer Module for precise printing of fine lettering and images, the Ink Marking Module for sewing markings and the marking module for drawing or the engraving option.
