The enormous variety of materials for synthetic films and demanding customer requirements for these materials are causing the market to look for flexible and efficient production methods. Innovative laser cutting technology is becoming increasingly significant for these applications.

What are the advantages of CO2laser systems in the cutting of foils when compared to die cutter and cutting plotter systems? The high precision of laser cutting is opening up new opportunities, whereas the alternative processes are already up against their limits.

In industrial film machining, advances in laser systems are in demand, with laser systems—such as those supplied by eurolaser (Lüneburg, Germany)—frequently integrated into fully automatic production lines.

A comparison of laser cutting with punching and knife cutting is demonstrated with the help of the following table:
