Additional remote-cutting technology transfer to the airbag industry

The Fraunhofer IWS and the company Held Systems had developed a compact system to cut airbag fabric material with a flexible laser beam process. In 2015 two additional machines were installed for industrial customers. The 15th and 16th system were installed in China and Mexico to cut single and multilayer fabrics with high productivity due to the remotecutting technology.
