Proel E-Laser Singlehead
Available from BITO
Embroidery laser-cutting equipment is now available for a singlehead embroidery machine making this versatile technology affordable for shops of all sizes. The patented Proel E-Laser system uses the embroidery machine frame movement to guide the laser. It can be attached to any model singlehead machine.
The laser head is mounted 1 1/2 inches above the fabric and cutting is accurate to within 1/100th of an inch. The power can easily be adjusted to match a range of fabric thicknesses and design needs by rotating the laser power knob. Guided by special laser-cutting software designed by Proel called FocusCut III, the laser cuts only within the sewing area of an embroidery hoop.
The footprint of the E-Laser is only 12 inches by 15 inches so it does not take up a lot of space, and it is expandable to support up to four embroidery heads. One configuration can be hooked up to 1 to 2 heads. A second configuration can serve 3 or 4 embroidery heads.
With the E-Laser, appliqué fabric is simply laid over the hooped garment where it is cut without any need for sticky adhesive sprays. Once it’s cut, the embroidery machine automatically sews the appliqué according to whatever stitch is selected. In addition to traditional appliqué, it can be used for distressed appliqué, reverse appliqué, and multiple layers at a greater speed than possible using traditional methods.
It also can be used for applying appliqué to finished caps.
