Most Fabrics can be easily and precisely cut with a CO2 laser. The resultant cut (particularly with man-made fibers) is a clean edge free from loose fibers. For this reason lasers are often used for cutting fabrics used in medical applications or where sealed edges are required. Applications using fabric range from multi layered fabric patches to precision-drilled arterial stints.

The Laser-Cuts Difference.

Many fabrics, including natural and synthetic textiles, can easily be cut with a laser. The lack of thickness, coupled with their high combustion ability minimizes the power output requirements of a laser to no more than a few hundred watts. The resultant edges are clean and free from fraying.
