How to laser engrave textiles?

Working with textiles? The BRM laser machine is the cutting machine that is perfect for you! Textile is used in so many applications. To illustrate: clothing is a great example where textile is used as a promotional tool, both for leisure and sports. Our lasers enable laser engraving or cutting of textile without decreasing in quality when production hours increase.

Many possibilities with textile

Textile is often used for decorative applications. Curtains, for example, are available in countless fabrics and designs. Think of the automotive industry where logos can be lasered in the upholstery. Many garments are also provided with a logo or other image to reinforce the identity of, for example, a sports club. Previously that used to be done by hand and sewing machine, nowadays textile cutting offers a lot of possibilities when it comes to decorating jeans, for instance. Whole images can be engraved and the fabric itself can be cut in certain places. Even entire surfaces can be discoloured by only treating the top layer of the textile. Patterns on the fabric can also be represented in small dots. No design is too complex for BRM laser machines.


Many types of textile are suitable for processing with a laser machine. Such as linen, cotton, silk, fleece, jeans, polyester and even technical textile materials such as Kevlar. Every substance responds differently to the use of the laser. Polyester melts when it comes into contact with heat. The advantage when working with laser technology is that the edges will be beautifully finished and will not fray. The success of working with textile laser cutting and laser engraving depends on the correct setting in terms of power and speed.

Textile laser machine

The best machine to process textiles is the BRM CO2 machine. Besides our BRM Original or Open Bed laser machines, we can supply you with our ‘AF’- machine. Where ‘AF’ stands for ‘Auto Feeding’. They are perfectly suited to cut and engrave textile and leather materials directly from the roll. From the backside of the machine, the feeder transports the material to the work surface of the machine. Then the machine cuts or engraves the material and places the finished product in the specially designed collection tray. Of course, the settings can be adjusted so you can achieve perfect results to meet your specific needs!
