It’s easy to get stuck in a rut when it comes to choosing the best-fit cutting system for your organization. Too often, companies invest in what they believe to be a “safe” choice — when in reality there might be a better solution available, regardless of an IBM caliber label, which could better match their operational needs and benefit their business’ performance.
Whether you are setting out to start your new printing business or are looking to upgrade to a new, cost-effective technology, you should take a moment and look into a Dye-Sublimation Printer. For any successful business to remain competitive in the fast-growing world of grand format digital printing, it’s important to keep up-to-date on technological innovations. You don’t need to look further than the beautiful images you can create with a Dye-Sublimation Printer, which is a low cost and high-quality printing technology.
When working with digitally printed fabrics, welding gives print service providers (PSPs), who lack experience in sewing or don’t have an industrial sewing machine, or a pool of talented sewers, a quality alternative to finishing. A popular resource when creating vinyl banners and large outdoor billboards, many print service providers are already familiar with this new process but remain unaware of the slew of advantages and capabilities that welding machines offer.
Laser cutters might primarily appear somewhat limited to you because they are only able to cut flat objects. Surprisingly, however, the capabilities and possibilities of laser cutting are endless.
Welcome to the first of a two-part series that will explain laser cutters and how they function. While laser cutters popularity has only recently sparked, they have quickly become the standard for cutting technology within the manufacturing industry.
Let’s take a deeper look at laser cutters, illustrating what they are, how they work, and much more.
With marketing opportunities constantly evolving, people are always looking for new ways to get their names out there and different techniques they can use when it comes to product labels, and other printed materials. The laser cutters of today are far superior to the cutting technology that previously had been standard in the printing industry, and have the potential to diversify your business in many different ways. And, if this technology isn’t all you need, there are even now fully capable cutting solutions that can incorporate lasers in addition to traditional routing and knife cutting capabilities.
In the first part of this article, we discussed dye-sublimation in general terms, describing what exactly it is and how it works, as well as why it’s so popular. While we did manage to cover the basics regarding dye-sublimation printing, there’s still a lot left to know.
In part 2 we are going to go a little bit more in-depth on the topic of dye-sublimation and address other of its aspects, such as the machines used within the process. Let’s have a look at some other aspects of dye-sublimation printing, including the machine you’ll need for it, the software it requires, and other details.
In the sign and display industry, business owners are always on the lookout for new and more cost-efficient ways to produce graphical shapes on a wide variety of materials. They also commonly keep an eye out for ways to produce total aluminum signage as time-efficiently as possible, and other metal products, as these are used more and more to meet their customer’s requirements.
In response to this search for ingenuity, companies that make laser cutters have been hard at work developing new machines and methods for producing parts including total aluminum signage. The advancements they have been making, with new kinds of laser cutting solutions have ended up resulting in higher production capabilities, as well as increased process and system flexibility for those looking for an all metal cutting solution. But, in the grand format market, needs are much more limited and alternative capabilities using a router are both sufficient, and allow for a single system to handle more of the PSP’s workload
Let’s take a deeper look at the process that must be undertaken to perform significant metal cutting with a router cutter vs. a laser.
When you use acrylic for your laser cut signage jobs, it opens doors to unique cutting and etching options with respect to creativity. It does, however, take practice to work with acrylic, and lacking the proper amount of experience when working with it can produce mixed results.
Laser cutting acrylic can be difficult, but with the right training, you can reach an impressive skill level, thank your manufacturer. Let’s take a look at some of the most useful tips when trying to get high-quality results from acrylic laser cutting.
