Understanding Proel LaserBridge Technology
Proel TSI and BITO USA were at the TexProcess show, May 9-12, 2017 in Frankfurt, Germany. This is an international trade fair for processing textile and flexible materials.
The Proel LaserBridge machine was mounted over a Happy six-head embroidery machine and was in action during the show showing off its capabilities and potential.
In this series of four videos, you can see how it’s possible to create innovative, unique, home decorative accessories and fashion apparel that cannot be matched without the smooth, seamless productivity of a laser embroidery machine. This particular job was a window treatment.
In this video, you are seeing a Proel LaserBridge machine built over a Happy six-head embroidery machine. The job has two layers of satin: black on top and red on the bottom. At the beginning of the video, boxes had already been stitched onto the fabric. The laser then cut a square out of each box allowing the red background to come through.
Part two of this video series of the Proel LaserBridge shows that a yellow sun has been embroidered at each corner of every box. Then the laser cuts out a circle in the center of the piece. The black fabric is weeded showing the red satin underneath and a woman’s eye is embroidered in the center.
In this video, you see the laser move from embroidery head to head and quickly cut the top layer of fabric to reveal the red layer underneath. Cut pieces are quickly and easily weeded from the design.
Here, you see the finished product, which combines embroidery with laser cutting to create an eye-catching piece.
