Laser can be used for cutting patterns from many different fabric materials, widely used within the drapery industry because of a
very fast processing speed and the fact that
many layers of cloth, textiles or fabric can be
stacked and a pattern or plan can be laser
cut through all layers in one pass.

When nylon, fleece and some other man made fabrics are cut the laser welds the edges so they can not unravel like knife or blade cut components.
