Laser Cutting of Nylon, Polyamide (PA) and Ripstop Textiles

Laser Solutions for Nylon, Polyamide (PA)

Goldenlaser offers laser cutting machines for nylon fabrics, tailored to the specific processing requirements (e.g. various nylon variants, different dimensions and shapes).

Nylon is a generic name for several synthetic polyamides. As a man-made synthetic fiber derived from petrochemical products, nylon is very strong and elastic, making it a fiber that is most likely to remain in production and use. From fashion, parachutes, and military vests to carpets and luggage, nylon is a very useful fiber in many applications.

As one of the major steps within the manufacturing process, the method in which you decide to cut your materials will have an enormous impact on the quality of your finished product. The way your materials are cut must be accurate, efficient and flexible, which is why laser cutting has quickly become one of the most widely used methods in the manufacturing industry.

Information on nylon materials and laser cutting process:

The term nylon points towards a polymer family known as linear polyamides. It is a plastic that is in everyday products but is also fibers for making fabrics. Nylon is known as one of the world's most useful synthetic fibres, with applications varying from daily life activities to industries. Nylon has excellent strength and abrasion resistance and also has a fantastic elastic recovery, which means that fabrics can be stretched to its limits without losing their shape. Originally developed by DuPont engineers in the mid-1930s, nylon was initially used for military purposes, but its uses have since diversified. A large number of different types of nylon fabrics have been developed to obtain the properties required for each intended use. As you can tell, nylon fabric is a durable and extremely low-maintenance option in the textile industry.

Nylon is widely used in diversified products, including swimwear, shorts, track pants, active wear, windbreakers, draperies and bedspreads and bulletproof vests, parachutes, combat uniforms and life vests.  In order to make these final products function well, the accuracy and efficiency of the cutting process are very important in the manufacturing process. By using a laser cutter to cut nylon, you can make repeatable, clean cuts with a precision that cannot be achieved with a knife or a punch. And laser cutting seals the edges of most textiles, including nylon, virtually eliminating the problem of fraying. In addition, laser cutting machine offers maximum flexibility while reducing processing times.

Laser cut nylon can be used for the following applications:

• Clothing and Fashion

• Military Clothing

• Specialty Textiles

• Interior Design

• Tents

• Parachutes

• Packaging

• Medical Devices

• And more!
