Laser cutting is more than just for manufacturing and we are going beyond the norm and redefining the standard.

With that being said, we thought we would share some ‘off the wall’ examples from the world of fashion to business cards, signage, business decor, and prove once and for all that laser cutting is one of the most advanced and accurate manufacturing processes in the world.

World of Fashion
“Laser-cut” has become a buzzword in the world of industrial design and fashion. Many contemporary objects from computers to clothing have been touched by the process, and its popularity continues to grow the more we discover about it’s potential.
The term is exactly what it sounds like, using a laser rather than a blade to cut into a surface. The benefits include a cleaner, accurate cut, as well as a higher quality of finish.
So how does laser cutting play into the fashion industry specifically?
It’s an interesting, modern hybrid between the concept of cutwork lace and the clean aesthetic of screen-printing. Laser cutting is a process that never seems to tire, as new developments are constant.
If you’re looking to design laser cut textiles, there are a few basics to consider in terms of the outcome:
- Laser cutting works best on synthetic fabrics; the plastics in these textiles melt during the process, resulting in a sealed, perfect edge that won’t fray.
- Natural fabrics on the other hand, are slightly singed by the heat of the laser, holding the fibers in place.
- This generally results in a discoloration at the edge of the cut, which, depending on the desired outcome can be a con or a welcomed design element.
- However, adjustments can be made depending on the fabric and the strength of the laser to potentially eliminate any marks.
