Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0125824A2] A laser (205) based material surface processing device which permits the development of new formations and/or designs on textile materials. A controller (199) outputs laser (205) control signals via drive lines (198) and excitation unit (200). The laser (205) outputs a beam (208) in response to the excitation signals. The duty cycle of the laser (205) beam (208) is subsequently adjusted using a shutter (210). The beam (208) is then positioned and zoomed onto a material surface platform (230) by a laser moving element (215) and zoom lens asembly (220), respectively.

[origin: WO0125824A2] Techniques of duty cycle and other power type modulation of a laser to enable new formation of new designs on textile material.
