Laser Cutting Aramid

Professional and qualified Aramid fabric and fiber cutting machine

Characterized by relatively rigid polymer chains, aramid fibers have great mechanical properties and good resistance to abrasion. Traditional usage of knives is inefficient and the cutting tool wearing causes unstable product quality.

When it comes to aramid products, the large format industrial fabric cutting machine, fortunately, is the most suitable aramid cutting machine for delivering a high level of precision and repeatability accuracy. The contactless thermal processing through the laser beam ensures the sealed cut edges and saves reworking or cleaning procedures.

Material information of Laser Cutting Aramid

aramid 02

Founded in the 60s, Aramid was the first organic fiber with sufficient tensile strength and modulus and was developed as a replacement for steel. Due to its good thermal (high melting point of >500℃) and electrical insulations properties, Aramid Fibers are widely used in aerospace, automotive, industrial settings, buildings, and the military. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) manufacturers will heavily weave the aramid fibers into the fabric to improve the safety and comfort of workers at all extremes. Originally, aramid, as a hard-wearing fabric, was heavily used in the denim markets that claimed to be as protective in wear and comfort compared to leather. Then it has been used in the manufacture of motorbike riding protective clothing rather than its original uses.

Common Aramid brand names:

Kevlar®, Nomex®, Twaron, and Technora.

Aramid vs Kevlar: Some people may ask what's the difference between aramid and kevlar. The answer is pretty straightforward. Kevlar is the famous trademarked name owned by DuPont and Aramid is the strong synthetic fiber.

FAQ of laser cutting Aramid (Kevlar)

# how to set laser cutting fabric?

To achieve the perfect results with laser cutting, it is crucial to have the right settings and techniques in place. Many laser parameters are relevant to fabric-cutting effects like laser speed, laser power, air blowing, exhaust setting, and so on. In general, for thicker or denser material, you need higher power and suitable air blowing. But testing before is the best because slight differences can affect the cutting effect. For more information about setting check out the page: The Ultimate Guide to Laser Cutting Fabric Settings

# Can laser cut aramid fabric?

Yes, laser cutting is generally suitable for aramid fibers, including aramid fabrics like Kevlar. Aramid fibers are known for their high strength, heat resistance, and resistance to abrasion. Laser cutting can offer precise and clean cuts for aramid materials.

# How Does a CO2 Laser Work?

A CO2 laser for fabric works by generating a high-intensity laser beam through a gas-filled tube. This beam is directed and focused by mirrors and a lens onto the fabric surface, where it creates a localized heat source. Controlled by a computer system, the laser precisely cuts or engraves the fabric, producing clean and detailed results. The versatility of CO2 lasers makes them suitable for various fabric types, offering high precision and efficiency in applications such as fashion, textiles, and manufacturing. Effective ventilation is employed to manage any fumes produced during the process.
