Nylon, also known as polyamide (PA), is ideally suited for laser cutting with high precision and flexibility. And in the case of textiles, the cut edges do not fray after they are heat sealed with the laser.
Goldenlaser offers laser cutting machines especially configured for nylon and ripstop textiles, as well as customized laser solutions to meet different requirements (various nylon variations, different sizes and shapes). Specialized and customized configuration is a unique advantage of goldenlaser’s laser cutting machines.
Why is CO2 laser system suitable for processing nylon?
Laser processing of nylon can be performed with a 9.3 or 10.6 micron CO2?laser. Laser cutting of nylon with a CO2?laser produces a clean edge with minimal melting along the cut path. Laser engraving of nylon is also possible with a CO2?laser and results in a clean mark.
Additionally, flexible and varied laser processing methods can create more possibilities for nylon articles, including laser cutting and laser engraving. Inherent processing features of laser systems have been not stopping the pace of innovating for customers' more demands.
Firstly successfully being commercialized as synthetic thermoplastic polymer, nylon 6,6 are launched by DuPont as military clothing, specialty textiles, medical devices. With high resistance of abrasion, high tenacity, rigidity and toughness, elasticity, nylon can be melt-processed into different fibers, films, or shape and play versatile roles in apparel, flooring, electrical equipment and molded parts for automotive and aviation. Combined with blending and coating technology, nylon has developed many variations. Nylon 6, nylon 510, nylon-cotton, nylon-polyester are taking on responsibilities in various occasions.
As an artificial composite material, nylon can be perfectly cut on laser cutter. No worry about material distortion and damage, laser systems featured by contactless and forceless processing. Superior colorfastness and dying for varieties of colors, printed and dyed nylon fabrics can be laser cut into accurate patterns and shapes. Supported by recognition systems, laser cutter will be your good helper in processing nylon materials.
