The demand for large-format printed textiles is growing. In view of this trend, many compa- nies are intensifying their search for more efficient cutting meth- ods. So, the focus of attention is turning increasingly to efficient and economical manufacturing processes. One of
the market leaders for flags and banners (FIGURE 1) has
discovered laser technology and recognized the benefits
this technology has to offer.
Since 1945, Fahnen-Gärtner GmbH (Mittersill, Austria)
has made continuous investments in line with the market,
extensive building extensions, and the expansion of technical equipment with state-of-the-art and innovative production systems. Today, around 500,000 m2 of textiles are
processed and finished per year.
In addition to its core business of flags and banners,
the company’s product portfolio also includes small items
such as pennants and insignias, embroidered flags for
troops and clubs, a wide range of accessories such as
poles, and printed and embroidered promotional textiles
