When stainless steel sheets are cut to size on laser systems, the protective film is of course also cut.
In the process, it is accepted that the film burns and thus residues remain on the surface and that these damage the surface during subsequent operations, e.g. bending.
However, this is only noticed during the last operation – removal of the protective film – and is therefore not particularly pleasing.
Rarely is the protective film cut on the laser system where it is not to be removed until later.
The reason for this is the rather expensive working time on the laser system, but also because conventional means visibly damage the surface in the process.
This is exactly where REFOIL comes in with its solution.
