Laser cutting of polypropylene

eurolaser offers laser cutters configured especially for foils and textiles

The cutting of polypropylene with CO2 laser systems is characterized by a high level of precision and flexibility. The diverse system sizes from eurolaser are suitable for both large-format textiles and the exact cutting of foil sheets. The parallel use of CO2 lasers and knife inserts on one machine transforms your eurolaser system into a universal cutter.

Polypropylene is ideally suited for laser cutting

Material information for the laser cutting of polypropylene:

Polypropylene (PP) is harder, more rigid and more solid than polyethylene. It is one of the most popular materials for products of everyday use. Technical textiles and foils, filter inserts or padding for furniture and car seats are made of polypropylene. This material can be cut extremely well with laser. The cut edges are always burr-free and of the highest quality. In particular the contactless process enabled by the laser beam and the accompanying distortion-free cutting plus the high degree of precision are all decisive arguments in favor of the use of laser technology for processing polypropylene.

Names often used for polypropylene:

PP, Inspire ®, Nepol ®, Xmod ®, Bicor ®, Hicor ®, Vestolen P ®, Polyfill ®, Topilene ®, Eltex ®, Sequel ®, Ontex ®, Tatren ®, Novolen ®, Profax ®, KömaLite ®
