To stand out as a team, you need uniforms. You also need a team emblem, and, of course, numbers for each uniform. Since 1998, ILS in Cleveland, Georgia, has been providing cutting services of finished uniforms and team clothing, as well as providing high-quality textile and a versatile cutting machine. After ILS spun-off from a leading European textile company, they began to use a Conveyor Feed on their systems. Created software to support these systems, and offered a “job shop” for customers who do not have their systems. Currently, ILS has six flatbed cutting systems in-house that have 25 and 100 Watt systems. For highly detailed customized cuts, the power is easily adjusted. For example, one of ILS’s customers had a project involving an intricate design for a sweatshirt. The traditional method of constructing this design would require layering 40 separate pieces and hand-sewing the dye-cut fabric pieces together. By cutting the same design using light, not only were the cutting edges effectively sealed to prevent fraying but also the essential steps were reduced to four.
“We revolutionized the textile industry with this advanced kiss cutting technique,” states Steve Widincamp, president of Integrated Laser Systems. “This method of cutting is far superior to other forms of digital cutting and provides cleaner finishes, fused edges, is more accurate, and produces higher-quality clothing, MLB now mandates kiss cutting using our technology for all their uniform logos.” ~ Steve Widincamp
ILS’s cutting equipment has also allowed the company to be more flexible and serve a variety of markets. While many textile production jobs are going overseas, ILS can keep many loyal customers and gradually develop new business relationships. ILS is currently cutting chemical suits for the U.S. military.
