Today, as sports become more fashionable, the choice of sportswear has gradually become more diverse, professional and fashionable. At present, the common material of the mainstream sportswear is polyester. After the thermal transfer of the fabric, the color is very clear and does not decolorize. Traditional thermal transfer sportswear uses manual electric shears or manual cutting, which has many limitations, mainly reflected in low precision, low efficiency, low scrap rate, high labor costs and so on.
However, with the development of laser technology, the laser has gradually become a common means of processing sportswear. AMOR laser has deeply excavated the processing demand in the field of sportswear and has launched a high-speed visual scanning laser cutting solution, which integrates intelligent software. The camera and cutting system are mainly used for visual guiding cutting processing, which improves the processing quality of sportswear, makes the production process simple, and saves a lot of labor and time cost investment.
The large-format visual scanning laser system is equipped with an intelligent visual recognition system, which is ideal for cutting digitally printed or heat-transferred textile fabrics of various shapes and sizes. The track conveyor is used in conjunction with the automatic feeder to maintain continuous cutting, saving time and increasing production speed.
Large-format visual automated cutting solutions and manual cutting for thermal sublimation digital printing fabric processing:
|Process Comparison||Manual||Cutting accuracy||Work efficiency||Cutting process||Cutting edge effect|
|Manual cutting||4 workers||low||4 workers take 8 hours||3Steps||not smooth|
Other work can be done while laser cutting
|high||2 workers take 1 hour||1 step||Smooth and automatic seaming|
Advantages of using large format visual CCD laser cutting machines to cut digitally printed fabrics:
1. Simplify the process
It integrates automatic feeding, scanning, laser cutting and receiving materials to simplify the traditional manual cutting process without finishing.
2. Multiple modes available
The laser automatic machining process can select flight scanning mode and mark point recognition mode to meet a variety of processing needs. The flight scan is mainly used for the printing of printed sportswear, printed T-shirts, cycling suits, swimwear, and other clothing fabrics. It first scans the contours of the graphics and then automatically cuts them. When cutting for large printed graphics such as advertising banners, it uses scanning marks to match Original print size, the way to make precise cuts;
3. Provincial people save time and materials
Save 60% labor, save 35% loss – transfer paper/printing time/fabric, save 10% ink, save space, save inventory loss, reduce scrap rate and ensure product quality.
4. High precision and high output
Scanning graphics can be cut to an accuracy of less than 0.5mm, and 500-800 sets of sportswear can be cut in 8 hours per day.
Customers need to pay attention to the use of large format CCD laser fabric cutting machine to cut thermal transfer printing fabric:
1. What is the suitable machine working size?
In order to meet the continuous cutting of printed fabrics, the large-format visual laser cutting machine adopts an automatic feeding working platform, which can theoretically cut an infinitely long cloth roll. However, large-format visual CCD laser cutting machines need to extract the outline of the printed graphics before cutting the sublimation printed fabric and only recognize the closed graphics within the working platform. Therefore, we recommend that customers need to cut according to their own when selecting the machine. The size of the largest piece to select the size of the working platform, in order to ensure the accuracy of the contour extraction, it is recommended that the maximum working platform length does not exceed 2000mm.
2. Why can’t pattern contour cutting achieve beyond format cutting?
Reason 1: The significance of the large-format CCD contour recognition system is that the cutting of the oversized graphics can be completed in one plane to avoid the errors caused by the splicing and cutting;
Reason 2: The large-format CCD contour automatically recognizes the working mode of the cutting system—identifying the pattern range, then cutting and cutting only the closed pattern, so when the contour of the graphic is larger than the cutting table of the machine, the outline of the graphic cannot be extracted.
3. How to make the graphics contour cutting more precise?
This cutting machine consists of two systems – a contour recognition system and an automatic cutting system. To achieve the most accurate cutting, you must ensure that the reading of the graphic position is consistent between the two systems. We need to do the calibration work before using the machine. First, on a flat white paper, use the automatic cutting system to cut the square of the whole surface, use the contour cutting system to read the square position, and then compare the cutting system. With the position error of the contour recognition system, the contour recognition system can then be adjusted according to the actual cutting position of the square, thereby achieving consistency between the contour recognition system and the automatic cutting system coordinate points.
4. What kind of graphics are easier to extract contours quickly?
First of all: Add a closed black outline on the outside of the figure, the width of the outline is more than 2mm, the thicker the general outline, the easier it is to extract;
Secondly, a distance greater than 5 mm is left between the two figures, so that the contour can be fully contrasted with the background so that the contour can be quickly extracted.
5. Can we freely extract the outline of one or more graphics?
Of course, we can select the graphics that need to extract the contours on the software, and limit the range of the extracted contours to extract the outline of the specified graphics.
