If a crease, slot, cut hole, or scribed line is required for folding or fastening, as in the packaging industry, laser cutting can solve the problem with a single program resulting in a beautifully finished product. Signs Alive does this routinely with 0.005” thick Mylar film slipcovers.
Our competitors often produce products with material that frays. With our laser, edges such as Polyester are sealed at the edge. Materials that are abrasive, knives, and/or Kevlar webbing are almost impossible to cut via mechanical means, but are easily handled by our laser system.
Some products, such as screen-printed bezels or artistic pieces are produced in thin plastic sheets and require an irregular shaped outline and/or interior holes. Laser is ideal for this application.
Fretsaws, jigsaws, and hot wires are slow, mechanically unstable, and have a high material waste factor. Computerized nesting before laser cutting is a much more efficient use of your material, keeping your costs in line.
If your company has encountered issues such as these, our laser cutting system and skilled operators will increase your quality of your finished product and the economy of production itself. Talk to one of our representatives to learn how we can improve on what you have been doing.
