The automotive industry uses textiles in a variety of ways, from interior trim and upholstery to seatbelts and airbags. Laser cutting is now commonplace within the industry, and offers numerous advantages over traditional mechanical methods.
Laser cutting is flexible, fast and precise. Fabric waste can be trimmed from the edges of moulded interior pillars with ease, using robots to follow the contours of the 3-dimensional parts.
Textiles for upholstery can be cut from sheets of fabric at high speed. In many cases the laser melts and seals the edge of the material, reducing the risk of fraying.
