Nomex® Laser Cutting

Nomex® is a synthetic form of meta-aramid fiber that can be useful for a wide variety of applications. Its durability and heat-resistance make it a popular choice for applications that need to stand up to tough conditions. The most effective way to fabricate Nomex® parts typically involves laser cutting. Nomex® responds well to laser cutting, as we are able to make very precise, very clean cuts with the laser cutter.

Not all parts fabricators have the equipment or expertise for laser cutting Nomex®. American Micro Industries, has over 20 years of expertise in parts fabrication. You know we are a company you can rely on.

About Nomex®

Nomex® is lightweight, highly tolerant of extreme temperatures and fire-resistant, which makes it the perfect material for fashioning protective garments for use in harsh environments. It’s also ideal for insulation purposes and other high-performance applications.

Working With Nomex®

American Micro Industries has laser cutting capabilities that are optimal for working with Nomex®. By entering design plans to a CNC laser cutter through AutoCAD, CorelDRAW or a similar program, it is possible to easily and precisely cut your Nomex® fabric with high tolerances and accuracy of up to 10 micrometers by completely heating and vaporizing the material in the path of the laser beam. You’ll get consistent shapes and clean edges time after time.

One characteristic that is so amazing about Nomex® material is how flexible it is when it comes to designing Nomex-based products and using Nomex®in your applications. With our high-tech Nomex® laser cutting and shaping equipment, we can make gloves, a head covering and an entire uniform, as well as insulating sheets, protective part coverings, household oven mitts and many more products for a wide range of industries. Our Nomex® laser cutting capabilities make nearly anything possible.

When used as an insulator — see Applications, below — you may wish to laminate your Nomex®with Polyester Film to multiply the insulation and temperature protection. Since both materials are quite lightweight, it is easy to bind them together for added security.

Applications

Laser-cut Nomex® has many useful applications. This flexible fabric may be ideal for your needs. You can use it to create protective gear for firefighters and emergency personnel, where its high heat-resistance and flame-retardant capabilities can be extremely useful. This kind of protective laser-cut Nomex®gear is also very popular with race car drivers, as it can potentially protect them from certain death if their car — and potentially the driver — should catch fire.

Nomex® can also be used to manufacture certain airplane parts as well as safe and effective insulation. It’s important to keep in mind that Nomex® is not only incredibly heat-resistant, but it's also a poor conductor of electricity. This makes it an ideal insulator, and its flexibility allows us to custom-cut it so it can insulate almost anything for you.

This is why — in addition to its popularity in industries like auto racing, emergency services, aerospace and the military — you will also often find Nomex® being used in electronics industries or other sectors where electrocution dangers are a threat. Today, you are even likely to find Nomex®paper in LCD televisions, tablet computers and even mobile phones to improve sound quality and otherwise to enhance performance.

You’ll also find it in many other industries that require a durable, lightweight, heat- and flame-resistant fabric.
