Laser cutting of polyethylene

eurolaser offers laser cutter especially configurated for foils

CO2 laser cutter are ideally suitable for the cutting and marking of polyethylene foils. Especially the high precision and flexibility are crucial arguments for laser systems. Due to the thermal laser process, the cut edges of the foils will be melted in one working step. With the parallel use of CO2 laser and knife bits on one machine, you turn your eurolaser system into an universal cutter.

What added value have laser cutting of polyethylene?

Kiss cut and laser marking of thin foils possible

Smooth cut edges without material damages
Smooth cut edges without material damages
  • Clean and perfect cut edges – no post-processing necessary
  • No material fixation required – due to vacuum table
  • Melted cut edges regarding multi-layer foils
  • No flaking of the material as is the case with punching due to contact-free and force-free processing
  • No knife cleaning – no sticking of the single parts after cutting
  • No tool wear and thus, a constantly high cutting quality
  • High flexibility in contour – without tool preparation or tool changes

What added value have eurolaser cutter?

  • High flexibility through combined cutting with knife tools and CO2 laser on one cutter
  • Unique variety of table sizes – suitable for all standard foil formats
  • Optimal utilisation of the cutting system through efficient automation functions
Typical examples for laser cutting of polyethylene are protective films for displays.

Material information for laser cutting of polyethylene:

Polyethylene (PE) is a classic thermoplastic resin with a waxy, soft surface. This material is used in various forms, mostly as foils or foam, for industrial use. Typical areas of application for PE foils include mechanical engineering, packaging industry, display protective films and membrane switches. Especially the contactless processing through the laser beam and the therewith related distortion-free cutting as well as the high precision are crucial arguments for the usage of laser technology in the processing of polyethylene foils.

Often used terms for polyethylene:

PE, Polyethen, Alathon ®, Dyneema ®, Hostalen ®, Lupolen ®, Polythen ®, Spectra ®, Trolen ®, Vestolen ®, Luflexen ®, Baylon ®
