Laser cutting for sportswear
Laser cutting is very popular for the sports industry right now in worldwide,thanks for the latest technology of contour cut and camera recognition.
Contour Cut by our dedicated technology, automates the process of cutting out dye sublimation printed pieces of fabric or textile both quickly and accurately, automatically compensating for any distortions or stretches that occur in unstable or stretchy textiles – Exactly the type of fabrics that are used in sportswear etc.
Contour cut is ideal for laser cutting sportswear in particular because of its ability to cut stretchy and easily distorted materials – exactly the type that you get with athletic clothing (e.g. running equipment, team kits/jerseys, swimwear etc.)
Material is automatically unrolled and transported onto the laser cutting machine using our automatic feed conveyor.
The camera recognition system is used to pinpoint registration marks printed on your material. The marks can be accurately read by our CCD system and the position, scale and deformation of the printed material will be compensated due to the intelligent analysis of the registration marks. This means that when the laser cuts your fabric all the pieces will exit the laser cutting conveyor exactly the correct size and shape.
As laser cutting is non-contact, there is no drag on the material and no blades to change. High speed loop servo motors ensure precise camera mapping and accurate cut lines with minimal user interaction. Simply collect the pieces as they exit the machine, this gives the Contour Cut system a major advantage over traditional garment cutting methods.
Our laser cutting machines make light work of these types of textiles, cutting them with no issue and making sure that you always get an accurate, perfect cut.
In addition to this, once cut, synthetic textiles gain a sealed edge. Meaning that they will not fray, this is yet another excellent advantage over traditional textile cutting methods.
Advantages of laser cutting for sports wear
No material fixation required due to contact-free and force-free processing.
Smooth, clean cutting edges; no reworking necessary.
No fraying of the fabric: lint-free & clean.
In the case of synthetic fibres: formation of a fused seam.
Simple production via a PC design program.
Significant potential for cost saving for high quality raw materials thanks to the nesting function.
Extremely high accuracy of fit by full cutting gap compensation.
