Eurolaser is presenting a patented new development for cutting wool with lasers at the ITMA Textile & Garment Technology Exhibition in June.

Previously, textiles had to be protected from fraying after cutting with knife cutters by means of linking or edging. Eurolaser asked itself: “Is that really necessary?”. No, it isn’t! Using this new Cut`n Protect Technology, means that these additional work steps are not required, which saves time because the laser provides lasting protection from fraying merely because of the cutting process.
