Composite Cutting Demos at CAMX – Dallas

The Eastman S125™ Static Table Cutting System will be on demonstration in Dallas, TX for CAMX 2015 (October 27-29) in booth K100. A range of manually-operated cutting machines will also be demonstrated to offer a cost-effective alternative to the fully automated S125™.
The Eagle S125™ Static Table Cutting System is a solution for RD or production cutting of nested pattern pieces from dry and pre-preg composite materials in sheet or rolled form. The S125™ is engineered with an industrial design for rigorous use, including an advanced electro-pneumatic regulator for precise tool pressure control; built-in surge protection; heavy-duty cable connectors; and a heavy-gauge steel construction with scratch-resistant powder coated finish. The operating computer, and control cabinet are housed in independent enclosures that are sealed to offer dust and water resistant protection in harsh or high particulate environments. Additionally, cabling connectors, servo motors and display components meet recognized international protection ratings requirements. The Eagle S125 may be configured in various widths and lengths to match customer requirements. A range of tool head accessory options for marking and printing plus various cutting surfaces are available to optimize cutting results for any given material.
Eastman’s line of manually-operated cutting machines will also be available for demonstrations, configured for composites applications. Model features are developed in response to new and high-tech materials cutting requirements. Eastman manual cutting machines feature many of the same benefits as automatic cutting, at a much lower investment.
