The cutting of textiles needs to be very accurate in most applications. That is where laser cutting comes in. It is invariably quicker and more accurate than a scissor cut. Here are a few applications where textile laser cutting is commonly used:
Apparel: Laser cutting beats scissors hands down during the manufacture of clothing. Each part of a garment can be cut quickly and very accurately, no matter how intricate it is.
Home Décor: Be it curtains, tablecloths, or pillow cases, laser cutting will create the most intricate and unique designs for a home every time.
Accessories: As well as clothing, laser cutting is often used to cut out components for accessories such as handbags, wallets, and phone cases. It doesn’t matter what the item is, or how detailed the design, we can help.
Automotive and Aerospace: Textiles are used in a wide variety of applications in the automotive and aerospace sectors. As well as accuracy, repeatability is key in these applications, and that is where laser cutting comes into its own.
Medical: As well as surgical drapes, laser cutting is often used to create surgical dressings. Having a surgical dressing that fits correctly is critical to avoiding infection.
Scissors have been used to cut textiles for hundreds of years, but they will never match the precision and repeatability that laser cutting quite literally brings to the table.
