ROLLING MEADOWS, IL -- Spartanics has opened up a laser cutting applications laboratory that can test various types of samples, including wood and wood composites.

The Spartanics Laser Cutting Applications Laboratory for Materials Research  will analyze samples to determine if the materials can be handled by modern laser die cutting technology.
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.
Paul Dirienzo, Spartanics director of engineering said, â€œThe explosion in new materials with different properties - tensile strengths, toughness, resilience, etc.- has been especially pronounced in the last decade. During this same time period, laser die cutting technology, largely due to more sophisticated software engineering, continues to evolve at such a rapid pace that the conclusions one might make today about whether a certain plastic, non-woven, or even nanomaterial can be adequately handled by digital die cutting is likely not going to be the same in just a few years.

"Spartanics has opened this Laser Die Cutting Applications Laboratory for Materials Research to facilitate the systematic study of match-up between laser die cutting and materials - both long-established brand names and newer material innovations," Dirienzo continued. "We will also be publishing these studies in the future in some manner, to be announced, and partnering with the major materials suppliers around the world to create a knowledgebase that will become a standard reference across industries.”
