Go Ahead. Get Tough.
Eastman's Static Cutting Table System is capable of cutting, marking, drilling and punching virtually any flexible material at speeds of up to 60 inches per second (152.4cm/s). The static table has proven itself as the go-to resource for materials like cotton, nylon and vinyl as well as difficult-to-cut materials — such as polystrand, p-tex, and fiberglass-polyester blends.
The static table system is available in a range of system 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. Material is spread across the static table by an operator or with the use of a pneumatic gripper bar. 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.
The Eastman M9000 static cutting table that we purchased is being used to cut Kevlar® fabric. This fabric is cut and sewn into targets used for the ballistic testing in the development of Military body armor. The M9000 has reduced our labor costs and increased our uptime for this development work. This is critical in meeting the needs of the U.S. Military.
