If you cut and and fuse fabric with a tool designed for this, it is necessary to hem the edge?

Unfortunately it is still necessary to hem or bias the edges. The fusing is simply to keep the edges from fraying whilst working with the fabric. It it is sil that you are working with (which does not fray) the solder gun still cuts through it like butter and leave a nice smooth cut.
