An intense beam of light is used to etch or cut fabrics during the production process. Every material or fabric that you bring with you to work on reacts differently to laser technology. We can discover the possibilities together through experimentation.
Laser technology is mainly used in fashionwear, and interior design products and applications.
Do you want to use laser technology in the TextielLab? First, you have to submit a request, which we will assess for motivation, innovative merit and level of artistry. In this respect, the TextielLab focuses on outfitting, art and fashion projects. If there is a match, an intake will take place to see whether your proposal is feasible.
After the intake, we will send you a work proposal and an offer. As soon as we receive confirmation of our offer, we will schedule the work your project involves. In order to achieve optimal end results, you should be present in the TextielLab as much as possible during the development phase of your project.
The TextielLab has a laser cutting machine made by BRM Lasers that produces a beam of light with a diameter of 0.1 mm. The machine has a working surface area of 100 x 1600 cm; a larger surface area can be processed by moving the fabric.
