ABSTRACT
The article discusses the application of carbon dioxide lasers in the clothing and fashion industry, particularly in marking buttons, cutting garment labels, patterning designer neckties and cutting shoe leather. Reasons behind the use of lasers in the clothing industry range from lowering cost to process flexibility and anti-counterfeiting. The unique structure of the industry requires laser tooling that combines performance with low cost by eliminating the high-end handling systems often found on laser workstations.
