Clothing Leather Industry - Superwave Laser

Laser technology is currently widely used in the shoe and leather industries. The advantage of laser is that it can quickly engrave and hollow out various patterns on various leather fabrics, and it is flexible in operation without any deformation of the leather surface to reflect the color and texture of the leather itself. It also has many advantages such as high engraving accuracy, hollowed out without burrs, and arbitrary shape selection. It is suitable for the needs of processing and production manufacturers such as shoe uppers, shoe materials, leather goods, handbags, bags, and leather clothing.

Laser Engraving

Laser engraving refers to the operation method of connecting laser equipment to laser engraving software and inputting the artwork into automatic engraving. At present, laser engraving is the most mature and widely used technology in the field of laser processing. Using this technique, any complex graphics can be engraved. It can carry out hollow carving and non-penetrating blind groove carving, thereby carving out various magical patterns with different shades, different textures, layering and transitional color effects. With these advantages, laser engraving caters to the new trend of international clothing processing.

Laser Cutting

In the computer embroidery process, two steps are very important, namely the cutting before the appliqué embroidering and the cutting after the embroidering. In the traditional processing technology, the defect of the cutting die processing method used for cutting before embroidering is that it is easy to produce fabric fringing, and the processing accuracy is limited by the die, it is difficult to process the heterogeneous graphics, the production cycle of the die is often, and the cost is high. Restricted the development of appliqué embroidery. However, the cutting after embroidering mostly adopts the hot-cutting method, which has the disadvantages of large cutting edge gaps, yellowing and hard edges, and difficulty in alignment. Heterosexual graphics rely on manual hand-cutting, which is easy to loose edges and produce waste products. Therefore, there is an urgent need for an advanced processing method to replace these two old processing methods.

Although laser processing is also a thermal processing method, it is very suitable for cutting textile fiber fabrics due to the high focus of the laser, the slender light spot and the small thermal diffusion zone. The specific performance is in the wide range of processed fabrics, smooth cuts without flash, automatic closing, no deformation, graphics can be designed and output by computer at will, no die and so on. This makes laser processing a recognized alternative in the industry.

Laser marking has the characteristics of high marking accuracy, fast speed and clear marking. It can print various characters, symbols and patterns on the flat, curved surface and flying objects of hard, soft and brittle products. Laser marking is compatible with the various advantages of laser cutting and engraving, and can be precisely processed on metal and organic polymer sheets to process complex patterns with small dimensions. The printed mark has the anti-counterfeiting performance that will never wear out. It can be specially produced for cloth labels, leather labels, metal labels, and various company emblems and LOGO with complex and detailed printing patterns. It is the best choice for brand clothing and apparel processing.

For a long time, there has been an alignment problem in the trimming of trademarks, the trimming of embroidery patterns, and the perforated patchwork in embroidery patterns. Accurate and efficient cutting is the common expectation of the industry. The existing automatic vision tracking cutting system has taken a big step forward on the basis of traditional manual alignment cutting, and can automatically locate and cut the alignment points in different bureaus. However, the random deformation of textile products cannot be automatically corrected, so a large amount of waste products will be generated. Now companies in the industry have successfully developed an automatic edge-finding and cutting system, which can automatically generate a cutting path based on the edges of the woven trademark graphics, and accurately use laser edge cutting. It can also automatically position and cut and perforate the patterns in the embroidery graphics, thereby fundamentally solving the alignment problem
