Lazor Blade Removes Man-Made Yarns, Fiber Laps

Charlotte-based Hot Air Specialties Inc. says its Lazor Blade quickly and efficiently removes man-made materials that melt at temperatures below 800°F. In textile-related applications, it will cut and remove unwanted fibers, strip bobbins and beams without scoring their surfaces, remove wrap-ups on casters, and free buildups on shafts and gears.

The device is available in models offering pressure ranges from 10 pounds per square inch (psi) to 60 psi. Producing heated air jets having temperatures of 850°F to 1,000°F, it is an environmentally friendly alternative to many hazardous chemicals that typically are used to maintain plant equipment and production areas, according to the company. In addition, because different man-made fibers melt at different temperatures, it can separate one from another for example, polypropylene from polyester depending on the temperature used.
