The Application of the Co2 Laser Cutting Machine in Garment Industry

With the development of science and technology, related equipment of garment industry evolves so that efficiency is also improved a lot Co2 Laser Cutting Machine is now universally used in garment industry.

Co2 Laser Cutting Machine

1.Pattern cutting

Garment pattern cutting belongs to application of conventional cutting equipment. Most people choose flat cutting machine matching with clothing CAD software and then form a garment pattern of cutting.

2.Cloth cutting

Clothing fabric cutting is usually conducted by cutting department and common mode generally choose blade and laser cutting. Nowadays, Co2 Laser cutting machine is popular but is also has certain requirements for the thickness of the fabric.

3.Template cutting

Clothing template is a new technology applications. Because of it’s various functions and easy operation, Laser cutting machine is well-known to more and more garment enterprises.Using Laser cutting equipment for the template cutting, it not only greatly shortens the production time clothing template, but also enhance the quality of the template.

Co2 Laser cutting machine replaced the original manual techniques and drills for its high cutting speed,small error and stable performance and docking software picture output and other notable performance characteristics.

The difference between  CO2 laser cutting machine and UV laser

The difference between CO2 laser cutting machine and UV laser

Definition of CO2 laser cutting machine:

CO2 laser cutting machine is a gas laser using CO2 gas as working substance. The discharge tube is filled with CO2, helium, nitrogen, hydrogen and xenon, mainly CO2 and others. High voltage on the electrode and discharge in the discharge tube have laser output on the germanium mirror.

The advantages of CO2 laser cutting machine:

There are abundant spectral lines, and there are dozens of spectral lines near the 10 micron laser output. The output beam has high optical quality, good coherence, narrow line width and stable operation. With relatively large power and relatively high energy conversion efficiency, the energy conversion efficiency can reach 30 to 40%, which is also higher than that of general gas lasers.

The working principle of CO2 laser cutting machine:

Principle of laser generation: The discharge tube of CO2 laser is filled with a mixed gas of CO2, N2, He, etc., and the ratio and total pressure can be varied within a certain range. CO2 lasers use the vibration between the CO2 molecules and the transition between the energy levels to generate laser light.

The applicable object of CO2 laser cutting machine:

CO2 laser cutting machine is mainly used for cutting non-metallic materials, such as cloth, the jeans we wear, some holes or old colors are processed through this CO2 laser cutting machine. There are also leather, plastic, acrylic and other can also use CO2 laser cutting machine. If the power is high, CO2 laser cutting machine can also cut metal. But the accuracy is generally not too high, and can not cut too thick. Compared with optical fiber laser cutting machine is still relatively inadequate, so the use of metal cutting is less.

Definition of UV laser:

Ultraviolet laser cutting machine is a cutting system using ultraviolet laser. It utilizes the characteristics of ultraviolet light and has higher precision and better cutting effect than traditional long wavelength cutting machine. The use of high-energy laser sources and precise control of the laser beam can increase processing speeds and achieve more accurate machining results.

Advantages of UV lasers:

High-performance UV lasers have short wavelengths, high beam quality, and high peak power. Reduce the size of the focused spot to ensure the processing accuracy, different thickness, different materials, different graphics can be cut.

The working principle of UV laser:

Except for free electron lasers, the basic working principles of various lasers are the same. The indispensable condition for generating laser light is that the ion number is reversed or the gain is greater than the loss, so the indispensable components of the device are the excitation (or pumping) source and the working medium with the metastable energy level. Excitation is the excitation of the working medium to excite the excited state, creating conditions for achieving and maintaining the population inversion. The incentive methods include optical excitation, electrical excitation, chemical excitation and nuclear energy excitation.

The applicable object of UV laser cutting machine:

UV laser is especially suitable for cutting and marking of hard plate, soft and hard joint board, soft plate and its accessories.

What are the commonly used engineering materials for metal laser cutter?

What are the commonly used engineering materials for metal laser cutter?

Although almost all metal materials have high reflectance to the infrared wave energy at room temperature, the CO2 laser, which is in the far infrared 10.6um beam, has been successfully applied to the laser cutting practice of many metals. The initial absorptivity of metal to 10.6um laser beam is only 0.5%~10%. However, when a focused laser beam with a power density of more than 106w/cm2 reaches the metal surface, it can melt the surface rapidly within microsecond time. The absorption rate of most metals in molten state increases rapidly, generally increasing 60%~80%.

What are the common engineering materials for cutting metal laser cutting machines?

(1) Carbon steel. Modern laser cutting equipment can cut carbon steel plates with a maximum thickness of 20MM. The cutting seam of carbon steel can be controlled in a satisfactory width range by oxidizing and melting cutting mechanism, and the slit can be narrowed to about 0.1MM.

(2) Stainless steel. Laser cutting machine is an effective processing tool for manufacturing industry using stainless steel sheet as the main component. Under strict control of heat input in laser cutting process, the heat affected zone of trimming can be restricted to be very small. Therefore, it is very effective to maintain good corrosion resistance of such materials.

(3) Alloy steel. Most alloy structural steels and alloy tool steels can obtain good edge cutting quality by means of laser cutting machine. Even with some high strength materials, straight and sticky slag trimming can be obtained as long as the process parameters are properly controlled. However, for high speed tool steels and hot die steels containing tungsten, there will be erosion and slag sticking during laser cutting.

(4) Aluminum and alloy. Aluminum cutting is a melting and cutting mechanism. Auxiliary gas is used to blow away the molten products from the cutting area. The better quality of the tangent is usually obtained. For some aluminum alloys, it is necessary to prevent the occurrence of intergranular micro cracks on the surface of the slit.

(5) Copper and alloy. Pure copper (copper) can not be cut by CO2 laser beam because of its high reflectivity. Brass (copper alloy) uses higher laser power and auxiliary gas uses air or oxygen to cut thinner plates.

(6) Titanium and alloy. Pure titanium can be well coupled to focus the heat energy transferred by the laser beam. When the auxiliary gas is used in oxygen, the chemical reaction is intense and the cutting speed is fast. However, it is easy to form oxide layer on the side of the cut. In order to be safe, it is better to use air as auxiliary gas to ensure the quality of cutting. The laser cutting quality of titanium alloy commonly used in aircraft manufacturing industry is better. Although there is a little slag on the bottom of the slit, it is easy to remove.

(7) Nickel alloy. Nickel based alloys, also known as superalloys, have a wide variety of varieties. Most of them can be oxidized and melted.
