Laser Cutting Felt
How to cut felt?
Felt is a non-woven fabric that typically consists of natural fibers and synthetic fibers by the process of heat, moisture, and mechanical action. Compared with regular woven fabrics, felt is much thicker and more compact. For this reason, felt is widely used to make slippers and as a novelty fabric for garments and furniture. Industrial applications include insulation, packaging, and polishing materials for mechanical parts. A flexible and specialized felt laser cutter is the best way to cut felt. Different from the traditional felt cutter, laser cutting machine owns unique and premium features. Thermal cutting can melt the fragmentary fibers and seal the edge of the felt. Precisely because of that, the untight internal structure of the felt will not be damaged and the processing does not accompany by dust and ash.
Laser processing for felt
1. Laser cutting Felt
Fast and neat laser cutting on felt avoids adhesion between material, bringing high quality finished felt with sealing edge while heat cutting. Automated feeding and cutting reduce labor cost in a degree.
2. Laser marking felt
High contrasting in color with laser etching single-layer of the felt can achieve permanent and unfading varieties patterns, customized brand logo images.
3. Laser engraving felt
Thin and fine laser beam can instantly engrave multilayer felt material by setting suitable laser power. Flexible processing method has no limitation for different shapes and patterns.
Application of laser cutting felt
When laser-cut, CO2 laser machine can produce wonderfully precise results on felt placemats and coasters. For house decoration, a thick rug pad can be easily cut.

• Suitable processing method according to fabric structure
Mainly made of wool and fur, blended with natural and synthetic fiber, versatile felt has varieties of good performance of abrasion resistance, shock resistance, heat preservation, heat insulation, sound insulation, oil protection. Consequently, felt are widely used in industry and civilian fields. For automotive, aviation, sailing, felt acts as a filter medium, oil lubrication, and buffer. In daily life, our common felt products such as felt mattresses and felt carpets provide us with a warm and comfortable living environment with the advantages of heat preservation, elasticity, and toughness.
Laser cutting is suitable to cut felt with heat treatment realizing sealed and clean edges. Especially for synthetic felt, like polyester felt, acrylic felt, laser cutting is very ideal processing method without damaging felt performance. It should be noted to control laser power for avoiding edges charred and burned during laser cutting natural wool felt. For any shape, any pattern, flexible laser systems can create high- quality felt products. In addition, sublimation and printing felt can be cut accurately and perfectly by laser cutter equipped with the camera.
