Laser Cutting Film

Positive Solution of Laser Cutting PET Film

Laser cutting polyester film is the typical applications. Due to the prominent polyester performance, it is widely applied on display screen, membrane switch overlaying, touchscreen and others. Laser cutter machine opposes excellent laser melting capability on the film to produce clean & flat cut quality at high efficiency. Any shapes can be flexibly laser cut after uploading the cutting files. For printed film, MimoWork Laser recommends the contour laser cutter which can realize the accurate edge cutting along the pattern with the help of the camera recognition system.

Besides that, for heat transfer vinyl, 3M® protective film, reflective film, acetate film,  Mylar film, laser cutting and laser engraving are playing important roles in these applications.

• Laser cutting transparency film

• Laser cutting printed film

Only need to upload the cutting file and set the laser parameter, the laser machine will start the non-contact cutting, with accurate cutting path and precise incision. Automatic feeding and conveying provide the a consistent and stable production for film laser cutting.

The Advantages of PET Laser Cutting

Compared with conventional machining methods which are for the standard grade used like packaging applications, MimoWork puts more effort to offer PETG laser cutting solutions to the film used for optical applications and for some specialty industrial and electrical uses. The 9.3 and 10.6 micro wavelengths CO2 laser is extremely suitable for laser cutting PET film and laser engraving vinyl. With precise laser power and cutting speed settings, a crystal clear cutting edge can be achieved.

Laser engraving film

✔ High precision - 0.3mm cutouts are possible

✔ No paste to the laser heads with the contact-less treatment

✔ Crisp laser cutting produces the clean edge without any adhesion

✔ High flexibility for every shape, size of film

✔ Consistent high quality relying on the auto conveyor system

✔ Appropriate laser power controls the accurate cutting for multi-layer film

Recommended Film Cutting Machine

• Laser Power: 100W/150W/300W

• Working Area: 1300mm * 900mm (51.2” * 35.4 ”)

• Laser Power: 180W/250W/500W

• Working Area: 400mm * 400mm (15.7” * 15.7”)

Upgrade Options:

Auto-Feeder

Auto-feeder can automatically feed the roll material to the conveyor working table. That guarantees the film material flat and smooth, making the laser cutting more fast and easy.

CCD Camera

For the printed film, the CCD Camera can recognize the pattern and instruct the laser head to cut along the contour.

film-applications-01

Nowadays film can not only be used in industrial applications such as reprographics, hot stamping film, thermal-transfer ribbons, security films, release films, adhesive tapes, and labels and decals; electrical/electronic applications such as photoresists, motor, and generator insulation, wire and cable wrap, membrane switches, capacitors, and flexible printed circuits but also be used in relatively new applications such as flat panel displays (FPDs) and solar cells, etc.

Material Properties of PET Film:

laser-cutting-pet-film

Polyester film is the main material among the all, often referred to as PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate), has outstanding physical properties for a plastic film. These include high tensile strength, chemical resistance, thermal stability, flatness, clarity, high-temperature resistance, thermal and electrical insulation properties.

Polyester film for packaging represents the largest end-use market, followed by industrial which includes flat panel displays, and electrical/electronic like reflective film, etc. These end uses account for almost the total global consumption.

How to choose a suitable film cutting machine?

Laser cutting PET film and laser engraving film are the two main usages of the CO2 laser cutting machine. As polyester film is a material that has a wide range of applications, in order to make sure that your laser system is ideally suited for your application, please contact MimoWork for further consulting and diagnosis. We believe that expertise with fast-changing, emerging technologies at the crossroads of manufacture, innovation, technology, and commerce are a differentiator.
