Contour Cut - Laser cutting dye sublimation printed fabrics and textiles

Dye sublimation printing onto large format textiles is now very popular for producing sportswear, flags and banners, due to the printers becoming faster and more cost effective. The only issue remaining is how to cut out the printed parts. Manually cutting each part is too slow, inconsistent and labour intensive.

The solution

Contour Cut by CadCam Technology Ltd, automates the process of cutting out dye sublimation printed pieces of fabric or textile both quickly and accurately, automatically compensating for any distortions or stretches that occur in unstable or stretchy textiles - Exactly the type of fabrics that are used in sportswear, for example.
Material is automatically unrolled and transported onto the laser cutting machine using our next generation conveyor system.
State of the art camera recognition is used to pinpoint registration marks printed on your material. The marks can be accurately read by our laser system and the position, scale and deformation of the printed material will be compensated due to the intelligent analysis of the registration marks. This means that when the laser cuts your fabric all the pieces will exit the laser cutting conveyor exactly the correct size and shape.

As laser cutting is non-contact, there is no drag on the material and no blades to change. High speed loop servo motors ensure precise camera mapping and accurate cut lines with minimal user interaction. Simply collect the pieces as they exit the machine, this gives the Contour Cut system a major advantage over traditional garment cutting methods.

Laser Cutting Sportswear

Contour cut is ideal for laser cutting sportswear in particular because of its ability to cut stretchy and easily distorted materials - exactly the type that you get with athletic clothing (e.g. running equipment, team kits/jerseys, swimwear etc.)
Our laser cutting machines make light work of these types of textiles, cutting them with no issue and making sure that you always get an accurate, perfect cut. In addition to this, once cut, synthetic textiles gain a sealed edge. Meaning that they will not fray, this is yet another excellent advantage over traditional textile cutting methods.

As Contour Cut uses a bite feed and conveyor system it makes light work of cutting shapes and designs that are much larger than its actual cutting area.
This makes the Contour Cut system the ideal tool for laser cutting flags and banners of any length.
