Heat-resistant glass fibres | Laser cutting
Application: Motor sports and tuning
In our example, we tested both glass-fibre fabric and approx. 8 mm thick glass-fibre fleece in our CO2 laser systems. The cut contour corresponds to a typical form used in exhaust systems. It becomes clear in the process that laser cutting provides a precise processing option, without driving up subsequent costs by wearing down tools.
Other applications in the automotive industry are glass-fibre reinforced plastics (FRP) for cladding or thermal insulation (e.g. in the engine compartment). Glass-fibre parts are, despite their low weight compared to metal, stable and can easily processed.
