The first scheduled event is Label Expo Americas 2010 to be held in Suburban Chicago, Illinois, USA on September 14 - 16, 2010. Passes for this event can be obtained by writing to Sharon Bagby, Spartanics Marketing Coordinator.
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.
