Composites engineers and manufacturers seeking to use rapidly advancing laser die cutting technology for finishing composite materials for a range of product types can now determine if the materials they use can be handled by modern laser die cutting technology by sending samples for engineering studies and analyses to the new Spartanics (Rolling Meadows, Ill., USA) Laser Cutting Applications Laboratory for Materials Research.

Spartanics laser die cutting applications engineers have tested laser die cutters with varying laser strengths and software configurations with a wide range of materials including: plastic films; polyesters; polycarbonates; foams; textiles; paper; adhesive tapes; nonwovens, wood, laminates, pressure-sensitive substrates, magnetic materials, polypropylene, polymides, abrasives, rubber, among others. Formalization of the Applications Laboratory signals Spartanics' intent to systematize this growing knowledgebase for cross-industry access.

The Spartanics Laser Die Cutting Applications Laboratory for Materials Research provides no-cost detailed engineering analyses of maximum material thicknesses that can be handled with these different substrates, including brand name materials, correlated to laser power and other variables.

To arrange for a no-cost materials analysis of suitability for finishing, marking and other detailing with laser die cutting, contact Mike Bacon, Spartanics VP, at mbacon@spartanics.com.
