The first scheduled event is Label Expo Americas 2010 to be held in Suburban Chicago, Illinois, USA on September 14 - 16, 2010.
The full schedule for the mobile Spartanics Laser Die Cutting Applications Laboratory for Materials Research events will be announced in the coming months. Preliminary inquiries can be directed to Mike Bacon, Spartanics VP.
Spartanics laser die cutting applications engineers have extensively tested laser die cutters with varying laser strengths and software configurations with a wide range of materials including: plastic films, polyesters, polycarbonates, foams, textiles, paper, adhesive tapes, non-wovens, wood, laminates, pressure-sensitive substrates, magnetic materials, polypropylene, polymides, abrasives, rubber, among others. Formalization of the Applications Laboratory signals Spartanics intent to systematize this growing knowledgebase for cross-industry access.
The Mobile Spartanics Laser Die Cutting Applications Laboratory for Materials Research will provide no-cost detailed engineering analyses of maximum material thicknesses that can be handled with these different substrates, including brand name materials, correlated to laser power and other variables.
Spartanics Finecut Laser Die Cutting Systems--sheet, roll or combination sheet/roll-- are used in a wide array of applications --- flexible circuits, membrane switches, gaskets, labels, cardstock and paperboard products, packaging, automotive and medical device components, discs, belts, and gaskets, novelty magnets, RFID tags, P-O-P display products, industrial textile applications, and more.
Rolling Meadows, Illinois, USA-headquartered Spartanics specializes in tightly integrating advanced software engineering with sophisticated handling systems to manufacture best-in-class technology for both tool-free (laser-based), steel rule die, and male/female hard tool cutting systems, screen printing systems and other equipment for fabricating products made from flat stock materials. Its worldwide service organization uses state-of-the-art virtual service technician technology and also maintains offices and spare parts in Europe.
