Zünds new laser module LM 100W cuts and seals polyester fabrics in the same process
Thursday 02. November 2017 - Swiss manufacturer of multifunctional digital cutting systems Zünd has developed the LM 100W laser module to cut polyester textiles with thicknesses up to 2mm and seal the edges at the same time.
The LM 100W automates what has long been a separate, manual operation and thereby also eliminates the need for seaming. In addition, the LM 100W delivers impeccable cut quality and flawless repeatability. Because laser cutting is a touchfree process, no hold-down is required during processing.
It takes one operator a few simple steps and a matter of minutes to convert a Zünd cutter to a full-blown laser-cutting system. Once the laser job is completed, it is just as easy to reconfigure the cutter for the next application. The Zünd laser module is equipped with an air-cooled CO2 100W laser with a processing speed of 44m/144 ft per min. As a Class 1 laser, it requires no special safety gear such as protective glasses. The laser module is fully enclosed, which provides reliable protection for the operator.
The LM100W is compatible with Zünd G3 cutting systems released since 2008.
