the laser is the best choice for cutting leather

Laser cutting has become more and more widely used in life and production. Now, it is more than just used in the production and life of traditional industries. It is also used in the design of fashion products. For example, in the current textile and garment industry, luggage, shoes, craft gifts, household goods, electronic appliances, lighting and other industries. So what advantages and features does laser cutting leather have?

1. Environmentally friendly and flexible

In the current market, the biggest advantage of the leather cutting machine for leather is its environmental protection and flexibility. The cutting process only relies on electricity and does not produce waste water. Moreover, any graphic can be designed freely by the computer, and the size of the design can be accurate to the millimeter, which greatly reduces the waste of materials to a certain extent.

2. Narrow slit and small deformation on the workpiece

The laser beam of the laser cutting machine is focused into a small spot of light with the high power density at the focus. At this time, the heat input by the beam far exceeds the portion that is reflected, conducted or diffused by the material, and the material is quickly heated to evaporate to form a hole. As the beam moves relatively linearly with the material, the holes are continuously formed into slits of narrow width. The trimming is minimally affected by heat and there is essentially no deformation of the workpiece.In addition, leather laser cutting is free of burrs, wrinkles and high precision, which is superior to plasma cutting. For many electromechanical manufacturing industries, modern laser cutting systems controlled by microcomputers can easily cut workpieces of different shapes and sizes, which are often preferred over die cutting and molding processes although they are slower than die punching. However, it has the features like no mold consumption, no need to repair the mold, and saves the time for changing the mold, thereby saving processing costs and reducing production costs. It is more cost-effective to consider.

3. High-energy, density-controlled, non-contact processing

The laser beam is focused to form a very small point with very strong energy, and its application to cutting has many features.

Firstly, the laser light energy is converted into amazing heat energy in a very small area, which providing narrow straight edge slitting, minimum adjacent heat-affected zone of the trimming and minimal local deformation.

Secondly, it is a contactless cutting tool, which means the workpiece has no mechanical deformation, no tool wear, and without tool conversion problem. Besides that cutting material does not have to be considered for its hardness. That is to say that any hardness material can be cut.

Thirdly, the laser beam is highly controllable and has high adaptability and flexibility. Therefore, it is convenient to combine with the automation equipment, and it is easy to automate the cutting process. Since there is no restriction on the cutting workpiece, the laser beam has unlimited contour cutting ability. Combined with computer, it can discharge the whole board and save materials.
