FAQ - Footwear
What are the footwear elements that can be worked by laser systems?
They are as follows: shoe uppers, soles, insoles, heels, wedges and bottom stocks, applications (accessories).
Are the finished products or the elements worked?
As a rule, decorations are carried out on the various elements during the intermediate phases of the shoe working and anyway before its stitching. Yet, marking can also be performed on the finished shoe.
Is it possible to excavate the insoles?
Yes. This is a process that has many advantages compared to the manual method.
1) No particular skill experience of the operator is required.
2) Only a basic base, relative to a model or shape, must be "traced" manually with the cardboard shape of the "spider". All the sizes DX / SX and SX / DX are obtained through the development software supplied with the machine.
3) The excavation is clean, without residues of dust or smoke, and therefore it is suitable for the keeping also of light colored uppers.
4) The excavation times are short, depending on the number of excavations, usually between 20 and 70-80 sec. for each pair of insoles.
Can a clog/heel or, more in general, bottom stock be worked?
Yes, they can. The optoelectronic dynamical focusing devices, accompanying the systems, enable marking of surfaces that are not perfectly level, thus ensuring uniformity (within 6-7 mm of depth of focus), though not geometric correspondence, as the drawing is projected.Marking of three-dimensional objects, that can be placed on a horizontal support, can be worked by the BX Multiaxes system. Starting from a known 3D surface and a graphic pattern, BX Multiaxes spreads the drawing on the surface, through a sequence of parts of drawing and axes (X, Y, f ) movements, so as to obtain a complete marking.
What is the most suitable machine model?
BX Multiaxes, specifically designed for three-dimensional object marking. Laser power can be chosen depending on the productivity required.
