Question #: 13580

Question: I own a custom rug shop where we design a fabricate custom floors of many types, Have you performed any type of testing using your 40 watt and or 80 watt laser for the cutting of thse textiles.

Current Solution

Yes, we have cut many fabrics with the laser. Or CO2 lasers can generally cut fabrics and textiles without a problem. What types of textiles (materials) do you need to use with the laser machine? Is there a layering of materials?

Additional Information:
We would cut multiple heights of different carpets and even hard surfaces such as Vinyl composition tile, Luxury vinyl tile,etc. and I'm wanting to explore etching into plain color carpets using the laser.
I'm contemplating your 5' x 12' machine with the laser/spindle combo.
Is it possible to make a site visit to your location and see the capabilities of the equipment ?

Additional Information:
Carpets are not a problem as long as there are no materials in the carpet or in the carpet binding layers that will off-gas toxic fumes. Check the manufacturer's materials of all of the parts of the carpet.

The vinyl should not be a problem, just make sure there is no material mixed within the composite that will off-gas harmful fumes such as chloride. The chloride will mix with the hydrogen in the air and form HCL (hydrochloric acid) which can be harmful if inhaled, but can also affect some of the metallic parts in the machine.

We have cut vinyl with the laser with great results.
