Short project description:

The purpose of the plant is to laser different design patterns from a wide range of materials. By using two different lasers, the customer is able to use materials such as textiles, paper, veneer, metal layers and/or combinations of all these.

The different patterns are designed using special CAD programmes and sent to the reciprocating table for the laser facility via Ethernet.

The facility is able to process patterns up to a size of 10m²; i.e. a wide range of different patterns may be carved out within this area. The positions of the patterned sections and the field that is currently being worked on are displayed on the monitor.
