Product Briefing Outline: The new Spartanics Laser Cutting Applications Laboratory for Materials Research enables PV product manufacturers to determine if their materials can be handled by modern laser die-cutting technologies. The lab allows those seeking to use rapidly advancing laser die-cutting technology for finishing solar panels and other solar products to send samples for engineering studies and analyses for evaluation.
Problem: The explosion in new materials with different properties such as tensile strengths, toughness and resilience has been especially pronounced in the last decade. During this same time period, laser die-cutting technology continues to evolve at a rapid pace largely due to more sophisticated software engineering. The speed of these developments are such that findings one might make today about whether a certain plastic, non-woven, or even nanomaterial can be adequately handled by digital die cutting is likely to have changed in just a few years.
Solution: The Spartanics Laser Die Cutting Applications Laboratory for Materials Research provides no-cost detailed engineering analyses of maximum material thicknesses that can be handled with these different substrates, including brand name materials, correlated to laser power and other variables.
Applications: A wide array of materials for laser-based production processes.
Platform: Spartanics specializes in tightly integrating advanced software engineering with sophisticated handling systems to manufacture best-in-class technology for both tool-free (laser-based), steel rule die, and male/female hard tool cutting systems, screen-printing systems and other equipment for fabricating products made from flat stock materials.
Availability: Currently available.
