Nylon is a man-made synthetic fiber that is known for its elasticity and strength. Nylon is great for laser cutting and in the case of fabrics, the cut edges do not fray after they are heat sealed with the laser. Our custom nylon laser cutting services can be used for the following applications:

  • Clothing and Fashion
  • Military Clothing
  • Specialty Textiles
  • Medical Devices
  • Interior Design
  • Tents
  • Parachutes
  • Packaging
  • And more!

LASER CUT NYLON Features & Benefits

Historically, laser cutting materials have been hard plastics, wood or metal along with leather and felt. True fabric hasn’t been an option—until now.  Nylon introduces a whole new world of product and design possibilities. Below we explore some features and benefits associated with nylon.

Nylon is not actually one, single substance but the name given to a whole family of very similar materials called polyamides.

Nylon resists dirt well and it does not become weakened by chemicals or sweat.

The fibers that makeup nylon are non-absorbent and smooth, causing items that are constructed of this fiber to dry quickly.

Nylon is known for its strength and rugged durability. It also stretches and has great elasticity.

Q&A for NYLON Laser Cutting

If you are cutting with shears or blades, you know that some fabrics tend to fray. Laser cutting seals the edges of most textiles, including nylon, virtually eliminating the problem of fraying.

Cutting precisely with scissors or blades can be very challenging, especially if high volumes are needed. With laser cutting nylon, you can have repeatable clean cuts with a precision unachievable with shears or blades.

Yes! We have been fortunate enough to laser cut for such designers as Vera Wang, Zac Posen, Marchesa, Michael Angel, Cynthia Rowley and more. Usually lasers attract designers to be able to cut absolutely incredibly complicated internal shapes. Another benefit that lasers provide 100% repeatability when cut small or large production.
