Laser Cutting of Sublimated Sportswear and Apparel with Vision System
The VISION LASER CUT system automates the process of cutting out dye sublimation printed pieces of fabric or textile quickly and accurately, compensating for any distortions and stretches that occur in unstable or stretchy textiles like the ones used in sportswear.
A powerful and versatile laser cutting system with camera for contour cut.
Perfectly combines the independent dual head cutting system with the smart vision system.
Further optimizes the requirements for graphics processing and mixed nesting, which solves the problem of low cutting efficiency caused by mixed nesting graphics.
Vision Laser Cutting for Sublimation Apparel Industry.
High speed Flying scan a sublimated roll of fabric and take into account any shrinkage or distortion that may occur during the sublimation process and accurately cut out any designs. Supports real-time modification during processing and has no restrictions on the number of graphics or shapes.
Independent Dual Head Cutting System
Smart Vision Camera System:
The laser machine is equipped with powerful Smart Vision Software and SLR Camera System.
HD Camera is mounted on the top of the laser cutter machine. After the material is fed to the laser cutting table, the camera takes a photo of the printed pattern at once in the entire work area at one time. The software automatically creates a file according to the shape and size of the pattern, and then the laser heads cut precisely along the outline of the pattern. It only takes 10 seconds to take pictures and create files.
Besides for the outline contour detection, you can also use templates for high precision cutting. And the camera has the function as “photo digitize”.
Independent Dual Heads
Basic double head laser cutting machines have both heads mounted on the same bar, so they can only be used to cut patterns of the same shape and size. Whereas for sublimated products, there are always many different types of parts in the whole cutting area, large or small parts, all the parts are different such as fronts, backs, fittings and shirt sleeves.
The Golden Laser Cantilever has two autonomous double heads driven by high-precision servo-motors, can cut different models simultaneously; thus significantly increasing the cutting efficiency and production flexibility. The increase in production is between 40% and 80% depending on the work to be performed.
Outline Contour Detection
The software detects the contour according to the big color difference between the printing outline and materials background. You do not have to use the original patterns or files; it is a fully automatic process without manual intervention. Detection of printed fabrics directly from rolls, without any preparation; and because the camera takes photos after the fabric is feeding to the cutting area, the precision will be very high.
When you cut very high distortion materials or need super high precision for patches, logos, you can use the templates instead of contour cut; the process is the software load your original design templates, and then camera take a photo and compare with your templates, then cut exactly the same size you want to cut; and you can set offset distance according to your production requirements.
If you do not always design by yourself or do not have the designers in your workshop, you can also use this machine as a “photo digitize” system. For example, you can put a garment piece underneath the camera, you can use the camera to take a photo of the garment piece and save it as a pattern files in your PC; next time you can use this pattern as a design pattern.

Advantages of laser cutting with Intelligent Vision
No limitation of graphic size or templates. One time image acquisition by vision system, any complex graphics can be precisely cut. Through high precision smart recognition one time imaging for the full format material, this system can directly extract patterns contour and automatic cut. Or using graphical feature points to achieve aligning and cutting according to the original design. It supports real-time modification in the processing, no limitations on a variety of graphics. It is the best automated solution for digital printing, personalized labels, embroidery and other positioning cutting process.
• High-Definition and High-Resolution advanced vision system;
• Artificial vision with high precision smart recognition;
• The recognition format can reach 1800 × 1200mm. Compared with CCD system, graphics do not need to be spliced, and the recognition accuracy is higher;
• The vision system is installed on the top of laser machine. Compared with CCD camera, the recognition format is larger and the laser head processing efficiency is higher;
• It can directly catch outline of the pattern and edge-following cutting;
• Compatible with the fifth generation CCD vision template cutting function;
• The outlines of the object could display above its corresponding image after matching, convenient for judging the precision directly;
• Continuously recognizing, feeding and cutting;
• High working efficiency: All different patterns only one time catching;
Dye-sublimation Trend is Driving Fashion, Fitness and Sports Clothing Industry.
Apparel and accessories that are fashion-forward, on-trend while at the same time comfortable and functional has always been pursued. Sublimated clothing provides all that and more.
The demand for unique personality and fashion sense in the clothing industry has greatly contributed in the popularity of sublimation clothing. Not only the fashion industry but even the activewear, fitness clothing and sports apparel as well as uniforms industries has taken great liking for this novel dye-sublimation printing technique since it provides vast opportunities for customization with practically no design limitations.
