Protective vests made of aramid fabric | Laser cutting
Laser cutting of technical textiles
Bullet-resistant vests are also known as bullet-proof vests in everyday language. Their task: Distribution of the kinetic energy on the impact of bullets, to prevent the bullets from penetrating and protect the person wearing the vest. Their material: Aramid fabric (Kevlar ®).Synthetic fibres or composite materials made of aramid are characterised by their special properties. They are high strength, are extremely impact resistant and particularly heat resistant. Mechanical cutting of this material is difficult or requires extensive effort. Despite these properties, aramid can be cut quickly and precisely with laser.
