Eastman Machine Company will operate a 72" wide x 12' long automated CNC static cutting table during show hours, cutting fiberglass, kevlar and other composite materials. The Eastman M9000 is a single to low-ply cutting system that provides superior cutting performance and increased throughput. This fully automated cutting system is capable of marking, drilling and punching virtually any flexible material at speeds of up to 60 inches per second (152.4 cm/s). It is the ideal solution for sample making and prototypes and is the system of choice at leading composite manufacturing facilities around the world. Eastman representatives will be available to discuss your unique application requirements and provide system recommendations.
Eastman's static cutting table has proven itself as the go-to resource for customers cutting cotton, nylon and vinyl as well as difficult-to-cut composite materials - such as polystrand, p-tex, and fiberglass-polyester blends. It is available in a range of lengths and widths to meet the demands for prototypes, one-offs and full-production runs. The system's high-precision configuration features multi-axis motion for more defined and accurate cuts. This computer-controlled system features zoning capabilities to enable cutting in one area while the operator is simultaneously picking parts in another, maximizing daily production capacity.
