Ultrasonic and plasma torch cutting method for fabric cutting

Ultrasonic Cutting

The basic principles are features of ultrasonic cutting are as below –

  • Ultrasonic welding is the most recent system.
  • Vibration frequencies in the 20 kHz range produce 1/20 mm movement in the blade.

  • Disposable knife blades save sharpening time.
  • Knifes last for 10-14 days in moderate use.
  • Two cutting heads are used, moving in different but synchronized paths.
  • Up to 10 plies can be cut and low vacuum only needed.

Plasma Torch cutting

  • In this system, fabrics are cut by a thin compressed air blow of high temperature ionized Argon gas through nozzle.
  • One or more fabric plies can be cut.
