Laser cutting of foils compared with punching and knife cutting
What can laser technology do better?
Both the enormous variety of materials for synthetic films and increasingly demanding customer requirements are causing the market to look for flexible and efficient production methods. Innovative laser technology is becoming increasingly significant for these applications. High precision is opening up new opportunities, whereas alternative processes are already up against their limits. As in industrial film machining, the advances in laser systems are very much in demand, so that, meanwhile, laser systems are frequently integrated into fully automatic production lines. A comparison of laser cutting with punching and knife cutting shows the following basic advantages:
