Sound absorbing fabrics in the Laser test

Laser cutting of AKUSTICO® and SILENCIO®

A selection of materials from the PONGS® portfolio was tested, which are mainly used in the areas of large format printing, advertising and interior decoration. All materials can be printed digitally or sublimated in advance, so the requirements for precise cutting are special. In our test, the Softimage Elastico® material was printed and cut, all other materials were unprinted.

Certified materials from PONGS® were:

  • AKUSTICO® - Sound absorbing fabric. Great upholstery material, very high abrasion resistance.
  • SILENCIO® - Flame retardant sound absorbing digital print medium. With a unique, three-dimensional surface.

The goal of the laser test:

Smoke-free, precise cuts with fused cutting edges

We have tested the above textiles for processing with our laser cutters. In consultation, attention was paid to the following requirements of the processors.

  • Best cutting results even with the smallest possible contours - Maximum perfection and accuracy
  • Avoiding traces of smoke and dirt, especially on the coating
  • Precise contour cutting of printed material
  • Exact corners without marks or overcuts
  • No damage to the coating due to the cutting process
  • Direct fusion of the cut edges - No post-processing

The used test setup:

Table concept:  Conveyor automation
Automated material feeding of textiles for processing directly from the roll.

Option: POSITIONplus
Camera recognition system for printed materials.

Recommended laser power: 40-200 watts
Optimal power for fast and clean cutting of thin textiles

Test result:

We have extensively tested the AKUSTICO® and SILENCIO® fabrics and were able to achieve perfect cutting results for all materials.

Overall, we can give a clear recommendation for the laser for processing the materials.

SILENCIO®

Flame retardant sound absorbing digital print medium. With a unique, three-dimensional surface. Available with individual print. Diamond size 10 mm.

Suitability for laser cutting: excellently suitable

AKUSTICO®

Sound absorbing fabric. Great upholstery material, very high abrasion resistance.

Suitability for laser cutting: excellently suitable

Additional benefits of cutting acrylic fabrics with eurolaser systems:

  • Precise and filigree cuts
  • No fabric distortion due to distortion-free material feed and non-contact processing
  • Merging of the cut edges, thus no pre and post processing

Textiles in the advertising industry

Impressive colors on textiles: trade show booths, banners, display systems or privacy screens. Textiles are versatile in form and color and are now one of the most widely used materials in the advertising industry. To achieve the perfect effect, different components in the processing are important. First of all, the material must be perfectly suited for its intended use. The customer decides which parameters his material should have. The second step is the high-quality print on the textile (whether digital or sublimated) and then the exact, economical further processing (usually the cutting).


We are often asked by our customers how our materials can be cut precisely and effectively. Where the cutting has to meet special quality requirements or exact contours, classical methods often reach their limits. Together with eurolaser we have tested a selection of our materials and found out what excellent results can be achieved with laser cutting', says Sebastian Tens, Head of Sales and Joe Hamma (Int. Sales Manager) at the PONGS® GROUP
