Laser cutting on Kevlar®


Professional and qualified laser processing solution for Kevlar®


Composite materials characterized with excellent performance and function need to be processed by a professional processing tool. Kevlar®, usually the ingredient of security gear and industrial materials, is suitable to be cut by laser cutter. The customized working table can cut Kevlar® with different formats and sizes. Sealing the edges during cutting is the unique advantage of laser cutting Kevlar® compared with traditional methods, eliminating cut fraying and distortion. Also, fine incision and little heat-affected zone on Kevlar® decrease material waste and save cost in raw materials and processing. High quality and high efficiency are always the constant purposes of MimoWork laser systems.

Laser processing for Kevlar®


Laser cutting

Appropriate processing tools are almost half the success of the production, perfect cutting quality, and cost-performance ratio processing method has been the pursuit of procession and production. Laser cutter meets the demand of customers and manufacturers to upgrade processing techniques and workflow.

Consistent and continuous laser cutting ensures uniform high quality for all kinds of Kevlar® products. As you can see, fine incision and minimal material loss are the distinctive features of laser cutting Kevlar®.

Material information of laser cutting Kevlar®


Kevlar® is one member of aromatic polyamides(aramid) and made of a chemical compound called poly-para-phenylene terephthalamide. High tensile strength, excellent toughness, abrasion resistance, high resilience, and ease to wash are the common advantages of nylon(aliphatic polyamides) and Kevlar® (aromatic polyamides). Differently, Kevlar® with benzene ring link has higher resilience and fire resistance and is a lighter material compared to nylon and other polyesters. So personal protection and armor are made of Kevlar®, like bulletproof vests, ballistic face masks, gloves, sleeves, jackets, industrial materials, vehicle construction components, and functional clothing are prone to making full use of Kevlar® as the raw material. Laser cutting technology is always powerful and effective processing method for many composite materials. For Kevlar®, the laser cutter has the capability of cutting a wide range of Kevlar® with different shapes and sizes. And the high-precision and heat treatment guarantees fine details and high quality for varieties of Kevlar® materials, solving the trouble of material deformation and incision fraying accompanied with machining and knife cutting.
