What are Aramid Fibres?

Aramid Fibres are a class of heat-resistant and highly durable synthetic fibres that are used in a number of aerospace and military applications. Aramid Fibres are commonly known as brands such as Kevlar and Twaron. 

What are Aramid Fibres used for?

Aramid Fibres are used in the manufacture of products such as body and vehicle armour, as well as other military and aerospace products which require bulletproof resistance. 

Aramid Fibres are also used in the composite industry. For more information about the applications of Aramid Fibres browse our composites page. 

Which tools should you use for Aramid Fibres?

Aramid Fibres are tough to cut due to the composition of the material. The Electric Rotary Wheel tool is used for the single-ply cutting of Aramid Fibres. The Electric Rotary Wheel tool is used for the clean cutting of fabrics and textiles and holds both decagonal and round carbide cutting blades. 

If marking is required, an inkjet printer is available for the purpose of high speed marking of product identifying codes. 

Which CNC machines are used to cut Aramid Fibres? 

Foamcore can be cut with either the Genesis-V and the Mastercut cutting machines. For more information on our range of CNC Machines call Blackman & White on 0161 843 404
