Laser cutting of industrial adhesive tape
CO2 laser cutters specially developed for high-performance adhesive tapes
Industrial tapes are the ideal choice for high-performance industrial applications. However, the material presents ist processors with major challenges. When cutting industrial and high-performance adhesive tapes, it is about exact cut edges as well as the possibility of individual contours and filigree cuts. Here the CO2 laser impresses with its absolute precision and flexible application options. Laser cutting systems work without contact, which means that no adhesive residue sticks to the tool. There is no need to clean or re-sharpen the tool with laser cutting.
- Contactless, no adhesive residue sticking to the tool
- No material fixation required thanks to the vacuum table
- No tool wear
- High repeatability
- Highest cutting quality
- Precise and filigree cuts possible
- Easy removal of the cut parts
- Little tool and machine cleaning
Well-known manufacturers such as 3M, tesa or ORAFOL have long turned the production of industrial adhesive films into a science. An extensive portfolio of adhesive solutions is offered for countless applications and industries. The excellent adhesive technology that is offered here, is used increasingly for industrial purposes. The permanent bonding with a high degree of design freedom is extremely flexible and can be quickly mapped into a fast process.
A good example of the increasing use of industrial adhesive tapes is e-mobility. Weight reduction is an important point here in order to save energy. The adhesive silm therefore takes the place of screws and rivets in the interior and exterior bonding and ensures a robust connection with an optimal hold and a long service life with a flawless appearance. Highly specialized high-performance adhesive tapes such as foam core adhesive tape or textile fastening technology are also increasingly being used in the manufacture of household and commercial appliances, in the automotive and construction industries, in order to achieve specific benefits.
