What are the benefits of cutting filter mats with laser?
- Clean and perfect cut edges - no reworking of the filter necessary
- No tool wear – consistently high cutting quality
- High degree of flexibility in the choice of contours – without any need for tool construction or changeover
- Contactless laser cutting of folded filters
- Less cleaning required due to reduced dust formation during cutting
- Extremely high level of precision and repeatability accuracy during cutting
- Machining in all directions – regardless of the textile structure
What additional benefits do eurolaser CO₂ laser cutters have for cutting technical textiles?
Material information for laser cutting of filters:
Modern filters are part of processes for separating or cleaning materials. These processes are often divided into gas, solid matter and liquid filtration. The materials used to produce the filters depend on their intended use. Filters made of technical textiles can usually be cut by laser. Cutting such fabrics with conventional methods, such as die cutting or use of a CNC plotter, is time-consuming and requires the use of forces to separate the filter material. It is also dust and cost intensive, because the cut edges often fray so that an additional edge has to be taken into the equation from the outset. The tools become blunt over time and have to be replaced which, of course, means more time and expense. Depending on the method used, the tools (cutting die) has to be produced in advance, which is where the use of laser for cutting scores due to its flexibility. The contour can be chosen freely and can be adapted in a matter of seconds.
eurolaser customers from filter processing:
Laser processing for high-tech filter fabrics - Saati specializes in the processing of ultra-modern technical textiles and has been using eurolaser for cutting for years.
Efficient use of special solutions - With an L-3200 Conveyor, it was possible to switch from manual cutting to more efficient, automated processing.
Sustainable automation of the work steps - with now 2 laser cutters, the filter manufacturer processes a wide variety of materials.
Application examples of the eurolaser CO₂ laser systems:
Lasers are ideal for cutting open- and closed-cell foams. Many foams are processed as filters after they have been cut.
Polyester filter fleece is best cut with a laser. The automatically welded cut edges prevent fraying and save you time and money.
Filter mats made of polypropylene can be optimally cut with eurolaser. You can freely choose the desired contours and also implement filigree details with your laser cutter.
The high demand for nose and mouth protection and filtering half masks is also met thanks to lasers. The laser is ideally suited for efficient filter production and offers many advantages.
