Eastman Introduces the Hawk™ Automatic Cutting System

BUFFALO, N.Y. – Eastman Machine Company, manufacturer of handheld cutting machines, automated cutting systems, spreading and material handling systems announces the release of the Hawk automatic cutting system. The Hawk joins the equipment portfolio as a solution specific to professionals working in the advanced printing, packaging and graphics sector as well as industrial applications like gaskets, foam and insulation which require special cutting applications. Eastman debuted the Hawk TL at the ISA Expo (International Sign Expo) in Las Vegas, Nevada USA in April 2019.

The Hawk is a high-speed, precision cutting system which focuses on the essentials: the work surface is freely accessible from all sides; it has an extremely robust yet slimline traverse cutting gantry; rack and pinion drive system in all axis for slip-free drive; and powerful AC-servo motors and CAN-Bus-steering techniques for high throughput. A multi-functional tool head is the highlight of the system, answering the specific need of packaging and graphics professionals that seek a wide variety of tools on one system. A combinable single and multi-functional tool head with tangentially controlled tool holders is designed to hold up to 7 tools, features controlled depth adjustment and AutomaticEye™ intelligence. For facilities working outside of traditional flat packaging board and soft signage, there is a variety of more traditional tools which can be mounted – a driven “pizza wheel”, a bevel cut tool, and router.

Optional features include, but are not limited to:

  • Conveyor system with integrated unloading table
  • Motorized and manual unwinding / winding devices for rolled goods
  • Camera system for accurate assignment of scaling of prints
  • Barcode reader
  • Projection of the cutting outline onto the material
  • Felt or polyurethane cutting surfaces

The Hawk is available in many working widths and lengths and features cutting speeds of 45 to 90 inches per second depending on the cutting system size, configuration and tool head configured.
