Aramid is a golden-yellow, organic synthetic fibre, the strands of which are extremely stable and flexible and can therefore only be mechanically cut (e.g. with a scissor or a knife) with difficulty or with great effort. In spite of this high stability, this organic synthetic fibre can be cut with a kevlar fabric cutting machine without difficulty. This has the particular advantage of non-contact processing. The absence of material warping enables exact contours and accurate detail cuts to be produced at high process speeds. In compound form, aramid compounds are distinguished by particular characteristics. Aramid has a high strength and vibration absorption and is highly resistant to alkalis, acids and heat. Due to these characteristics, aramid fibers are mainly used in demanding security applications.
kevlar fabric cutting
Typical applications for kevlar fabric cutting machine are bullet-proof vests, cut resistant clothing and technical components in vehicle construction. Large format knife systems are optimally suitable for the cutting of aramid. Especially the contactless processing through the blade beam and the therewith related non-deforming cutting as well as the high precision are crucial arguments for the application of cutting technology in textile processing.
