Laser Cutting Film


Material Properties:

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.

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.

• High precision - 0.3mm cutouts are possible

• Automatically seal the cutting edges

• High flexibility for every shape, size of film

• No-contact processing - no tool wear, consistent high cutting quality

Recommended Film Cutting Machine

• Laser Power: 100W/150W

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

• Laser Power: 180W/250W/500W

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

Related Materials & Applications

The foil industry continues to keep developing. Nowadays foil 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. MimoWork laser is aiming at solving the potential problems during your film manufacturing and optimize your business throughout day-to-day execution.

How to choose a suitable film cutting machine?

PET laser cutting 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.
