2 Key Components to Accurate Laser Slitting of Irrigation Drip Tape

As we discussed in a previous blog post, speed, accuracy and reliability are the cornerstones of plastic extrusion lines. To meet the needs of this specialized application, the laser requires a support system to assist with integration and alignment with the greater production line. We recently developed a laser application to integrate and automate an On the Fly on the fly laser slitting system into a continuous irrigation drip tape extrusion.

Pre-and Post-Process Vision Integration Enhance Laser Manufacturing Processes

Vision systems are increasingly incorporated into laser machine tools to inspect, identify and guide laser processes. In its simplest iteration, readers can retrieve data from product labels or documentation to obtain information relevant to the laser process. Data strings can confirm the identity of the part; specify the quantity of parts to process or designate the beginning/ending serial numbers. For more advanced implementation, vision systems can locate the part and determine its orientation to accurately position the process (marking.

3 Cornerstones of Laser Systems for Plastic Extrusion Lines

Speed, accuracy, and reliability are the cornerstones for laser applications within plastic extrusion lines. At CMS Laser, we’ve developed systems for multiple industries incorporating on-the-fly laser processing for laser marking, laser cutting and laser drilling. A high-volume manufacturing process, plastic extrusion produces items such as PVC pipe, irrigation drip tape, weather-stripping, window frames, plastic films and sheeting, and wire insulation, to name a few. The process is used across industries from medical device manufacturing.
