Laser Cutting on Paper – Optical Detection Systems


Lasers are particularly suited for cutting the finest geometries with maximum precision and quality, which is something a cutting plotter is unable to do. Laser paper cutting machines not only allow for cutting even the most delicate paper constructions, but also the effortless engraving of logos or pictures.

An effective way of making the most out of laser cutting is to use specialised accessories. Including an optical detection system. An optical detection system is a camera system, which allows refined cutting of printed products. With a camera system, the contours of printed materials are cut perfectly. Using this system, even flexible materials are cut as accurately as possible.

No manual positioning is required, distortions in the impression are detected, and the cutting path is adapted automatically and appropriately. By combining the optical detection system with a laser cutting machine you can save on materials used and production costs.
