Laser Marking in the Athletic Industry

The market for the laser engraving industry has expanded significantly over the past few years. What used to be thought of as a process used only by industrial companies has broadened to reach businesses across many diverse fields. With countless applications and easy-to-use systems, laser marking has become a common method for adding customization and personalization to a variety of products.

In recent years, the laser engraving process has revolutionized the athletic apparel industry. Many companies have started using laser marking systems to design and create intricate designs and logos on equipment and clothing items. Continue reading to find out more about the benefits that the laser engraving process brings to the athletic apparel industry.

Benefits of Laser Engraving Athletic Apparel

The laser engraving process allows for precise, accurate marking on a number of materials. With these capabilities, athletic apparel companies and designers can create more intricate patterns and detailed markings on the clothing they provide.

The high-performance laser systems create a contactless process and distortion-free engraving of various fabrics and materials. Combined with the intense precision of the laser, the athletic apparel industry encounters a great deal of added benefits when using laser marking systems in their everyday processes.

Some of the benefits laser engraving brings to the athletic apparel industry include:

  • Laser marking and engraving of extremely fine materials
  • No material fixation required due to no contact processing
  • Ability to create very detailed patterns and intricate markings
  • Laser technology allows for more flexible placement of designs on products
  • Enables use of more technical fabrics such as fleece to retain durable capabilities (waterproofing, wind proofing, etc.)
  • Increased production customization and personalization
  • More precise embroidery and logo design

As laser marking continues to be a popular and beneficial trend in the athletic apparel industry, more and more companies are turning to laser engraving equipment to improve their design and cutting processes.

Laser marking systems are revolutionizing the sporting industry like never before by simplifying the design process and allowing for more detailed, creative designs on clothing and equipment.

Laser Etching for Athletic Apparel

In contrast to laser engraving, laser etching is used to remove something from a material rather than add to it. In laser etching applications, the laser system is used to burn away a portion of the fabric or material being used in the application in order to create a refined tone-on-tone appearance.

Ideal for large or small logos, laser etching can be applied to a wide range of materials including fleece, microfleece, and microfiber. When it comes to the athletic apparel industry, laser etching systems are used for the following apparel items:

  • T-shirts
  • Polo shirts
  • Tank tops
  • Pants
  • Shorts
  • Bags
  • Caps
  • And more!
