Suddenly, the epidemic is raging across the globe and it is surprising. All kinds of materials are extremely tight, especially for medical supplies used in the front line of the epidemic. There is a big gap. In the list of shortages provided by Hubei, there is a serious shortage of medical protective clothing. In order to stop the epidemic and face the shortage, after the feasibility analysis, the manufacturers with the conditions for converting medical protective clothing have switched production and overtime to accelerate production.
The manufacturing process of protective clothing is not simple. From the production of protective clothing fabrics to the completion of finished protective clothing, there are at least 10 processes in the middle. One of the important procedures is cutting.
General process of protective clothing production
One of the fabrics of protective clothing is non-woven fabric. The non-woven fabric needs to be cut in sections first. The cut non-woven fabric is sent to other processes in the workshop. Workers are like tailors and use these special materials to make a piece of protective clothing. The efficiency of cutting is related to the processing speed of subsequent processes such as sewing, tightening, and gluing. At the same time, the cutting of protective clothing has high requirements for the accuracy of the equipment. If the standard is not reached, the rejection rate of protective clothing will be high . Therefore, the cutting equipment of protective clothing must meet the requirements of high efficiency and high quality at the same time.
In terms of processing efficiency and quality of protective clothing fabrics, the laser cutting machine has a more advanced cutting process. The traditional knife die cutting processes are complicated, the processing labor cost is high, inevitably there are low processing accuracy, easy to strip off line, etc. The laser cutting process can easily cope with the advantages of high precision, no contact, smooth cuts, no rough edges, cutting any complex shape, and eliminating the need for hemming processes. .
Among the laser processing equipment for protective clothing fabrics, the automatic feeding laser cutting machine of Han’s Yueming Laser Group is one of the most representative intelligent clothing manufacturing equipment, which has the following processing advantages:
Wide range of applicable materials-suitable for processing most flexible fabrics, such as non-woven fabrics for protective clothing, medical bed linen, mesh, leather, cotton and linen;
Good processing effect-high precision of laser processing, smooth cut, no yellowing, no stripping;
Fully automatic feeding-automatic feeding system, E type conveyor with Front and rear synchronous pressing device to ensure accurate feeding; support multi-layer feeding;
Variety of styles-through computer-designed graphics, size and style can be adjusted at will, which can perfectly cut any shape;
Short production cycle-no mold consumption, on-site drawing and site completion, one multi-layer cutting, greatly shortening the production cycle;
Save a lot of materials-freely adjust the cutting shape and size, save material to the greatest extent, and control the corner waste to a minimum amount;
Asynchronous double-head cutting-double-head electric mutual shift, which can realize automatic split-head processing, and realize automatic control and adjustment of the distance between the two laser heads;
Array typesetting system-Built-in array-type cutting system, with individual / double-numbered cutting, intelligent layout of leftover cutting, and co-edge cutting.

Cutting is one of the most important processes in protective clothing and even in the entire clothing industry. The characteristics of automatic feeding laser cutting machines have significantly improved the cutting efficiency and quality of protective clothing. Non-contact laser processing makes the non-woven edge of the protective clothing smooth and no drawing. At the same time, the use of CO2 laser cutting machine can realize the vision asynchronous cutting of different parts, different sizes, and irregular graphics of the protective clothing fabric in the same plane.
Through the automatic feeding system, the automatic adjustment of the distance between the two laser heads is realized. Compared with the traditional multi-head manual adjustment of the laser equipment, it greatly saves manpower and the time of adjusting the machine. Through the Array typesetting cutting system, with individual / double-numbered marker cutting, intelligent layout of leftover marker cutting, and co-edge cutting and other personalized functions, saving about 15% of material costs compared to traditional mechanical cutting machines.
Medical protective clothing is the last barrier in the process of diagnosis and treatment. It is necessary to protect medical personnel from infection by various pollutants such as viruses, bacteria, etc., to resist the intrusion of water, alcohol, and oil stains, and to effectively prevent static electricity and even prevent dust from entering. Therefore, the quality must meet high standards and strict requirements, and any production process including cutting can not be ignored. As a more advanced and intelligent CO2 laser cutting process than the traditional cutting process, it provides more efficient and reliable processing quality. It is transforming the field of apparel fabric processing and helping to win the new coronavirus epidemic prevention battle at an early date.
