Lasers are becoming increasingly commonplace in the denim industry, where they are used to apply patterns and effects to jeans and other clothing. Laser processing is a sustainable solution, reducing water usage and eliminating the need for the harsh chemicals associated with traditional processes. Productivity is dramatically increased, as laser finishing is much faster than conventional processes.
CO2 laser finishing systems transfer a greyscale design to the jeans by varying the intensity of the focused laser beam as it scans rapidly across the garment. The laser beam selectively removes pigment from the denim, creating shading without damaging the texture or compromising the strength of the fabric.
The same laser can be used to introduce rips, abrasions and other effects, according to the latest fashion.
