New paths open up new possibilities
In addition to punching and plotting, lasers play a key role in the processing of adhesive tapes. INNO TAPE offers its customers a wide range of know-how and does not only rely on tried and tested procedures in their work. The dynamic company is known for breaking new ground and often gives its customers a decisive advantage.
Laser cutting adhesive tape
On the laser, the material can be processed into molded parts in all conceivable designs and delivered both as individual parts and lying on a sheet. Laser cutting offers many advantages – for example, pull-off aids can be produced in the process by laser cutting the overlapping liner (cover film). In addition, it is possible to simply cut the upper layer of the material without cutting through (kiss-cut) and to produce perforations. The "cut" is extremely precise and offers a clean material edge. There are no tool costs, there is no need for extensive set-up such as punching and the raw material can be optimally used thanks to the flexible arrangement of the parts (nesting). This is why the lasers at INNO TAPE are used both for short-term prototyping and for mass production.
Quote Thomas Weiser, CEO at INNO TAPE:
„It all began in 1998 when I was visiting the Hanover Fair - at that time I was still employed by my former employer. It was a curious but visionary idea and although the laser cutting of self-adhesive materials was dismissed as ineffective by many at the time, I just wanted to give it a try. We see today what has become of it.
This spirit of innovation was a crucial component in founding INNO TAPE GmbH. And today that is exactly our DNA: We try new things and have confidence in laser technology and the possibilities it offers. Our team is continuously working on new ways, so that we have perfected the production of laser-cut molded parts. And we're still a long way from reaching our goal!
Our knowledge combined with the technology from eurolaser makes it possible to manufacture high-precision self-adhesive parts supplied as laser-molded parts - even in extremely large quantities. I am excited to see what will develop here in the years to come.“
