Cutting and Engraving
Embroidery Dot Com has a logged a number of industry
firsts, not the least of which is the installation of specialised GMI
laser cutting and engraving machines in 2003. The laser device applied
to embroideries leads to the most important aspect that customers require:
Extraordinary and unique products with reduction
in turn-around time.
The laser can cut and engrave

are cut and engraved directly on the embroidery machine guaranteeing
maximum speed and precision. Appliqués can be cut at a specific
distance from the running stitches (or any other stitch function) in
order to get a precise border. The laser device avoids useless production
downtime as appliqués do not have to be cut by hand any longer,
as still executed by most embroidery companies. Production time is reduced
on average by up to 70 percent due to the high speed of the laser device
which can operate up to 6 metres per second
Thanks to the galvanometric laser device and the frame
movements, all problems caused by misplacement of the fabric are completely
eliminated. Designs are cut at a much higher precision than standard
systems - (1/100 of mm instead of 1/10 of mm). This is possible by controlling
the laser power variation with the control software.
engraving denim, the laser engraving process actually burns the fabric,
producing a worn look. This engraving method is used widely for etching
wear marks on to jeans. Engraving can be applied to most fabrics and
the result is dependant on the actual fabric make-up.
Designs can be produced in a combination of specialised
appliqués, embroidery and engraving in the same process. This
is made possible due to the laser device and embroidery machine working
in sync, guaranteeing accurate registration. To date, we are the only
embroidery manufacturer in the entire African continent with this type
