St. Paul, Minn., June 2, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LasX Industries, Inc., a global leader in high-performance laser systems and services, together with RevoLaze, LLC, a laser technology firm holding multiple patents for garment and textile applications, announced today the launch of their next generation 2500-watt Garment Abrasion System featuring High Definition technology.
The 2500W LaserSharp® DenimHD Abrasion System outperforms other garment abrasion technologies on the market, with processing speeds 2-4 times faster than that of existing systems. The LaserSharp® system also delivers a much finer beam size resulting in high-resolution graphics 50dpi and greater. "This changes everything," said Darryl Costin Jr., President of RevoLaze. "We want denim manufacturers and designers to have a blank canvas to create amazing looks and no longer be limited by speed or quality of design. Intricate slub effects and textured looks are easily created through our custom filters with minimal difference in cycle time."
The strategic alliance between the two companies has been mutually beneficial. "LasX and RevoLaze share a common vision for the future of garment production, where the intersection of people, data, and intelligent production machines will have an enormous impact on productivity and efficiency for manufacturers all over the world," said William Dinauer, President of LasX Industries. "Prior to our recent collaboration, LasX's core business was focused on medical solutions as well as laser cutting and commercial print applications. Our alliance with RevoLaze and their team of experienced garment finishing experts has opened the door to an entirely new market."
"Denim garment abrasion with lasers is gaining prominence around the globe as dangerous practices, such as sandblasting and even hand sanding, are being banned while the demand for faded effects and patterns is growing," said Darryl Costin, CEO of RevoLaze. "Our focus has always been about worker health, safety and sustainability improvements, which can be achieved with lasers. Working with a great company like LasX has allowed us to build something truly remarkable and revolutionary for the industry."
The 2500W LaserSharp® DenimHD Abrasion System is currently on display at the RevoLaze Research & Development Center in Cleveland, OH. Interested customers now have the opportunity to see firsthand the highest speed, highest powered textile lasers in the world and experience the economical and environmental benefits of the revolutionary technology.
