Why process textiles with a CO2 Laser cutter?
Compared to using tools a laser beam is almost infinitely more precise. The edge points of a knife can be sharp. But the laser beam measures only 10.6 microns (a micron is one millionth of a meter). The laser can also replicate that same design more accurately and with greater speed.
Depending on the fabric the laser will often produce cut and seal preventing any frayed edges.
A laser is also contact-less which translates to no tool wear and tear and is consistent in the cut quality. Since materials don't need to be pinned down there's absolutely no risk of fabric distortion.
Some common textile application examples for laser processing fabric are as follows:
-Designing your own custom clothes
-Designing your own fabric toys
You can really enjoy yourself whilst creating some alluring and distinctive products with any textile that you like.
