More than 125 years ago, Eastman introduced the first electric cloth-cutting machine, which allowed the clothing industry to evolve from the manual drudgery of cutting to a modern operation. Today, the company continues to deliver engineering-based solutions that make real differences to facilities using new and high-tech materials as well as traditional textiles.
Manual Cutting Machines
The industry standard since 1888, Eastman cutting machines are engineered to cut the most diverse range of traditional, modern, and industrial fabrics in the market today. Fabricated using modern manufacturing technology, superior components, and skilled craftsmen, there is a machine solution for cutting intricate or simple patterns.
Automated Cutting Systems
Eastman’s series of automated, computerized cutting systems cut with accuracy and repeatability and have been engineered for single, low, and high-ply cutting requirements. Precision cutting tools offer the utmost flexibility for hundreds of material applications and are proven solutions for even the most difficult-to-cut materials. The systems are available in a range of lengths and widths to meet the demands for prototypes, one-offs, and full-production runs. A variety of optional accessory equipment offers maximum adaptability for your system, providing additional tools to streamline associated processes in your operations.

Eastman automated feeders provide an efficient way of feeding a wide variety of rolled fabrics to the cutting table in a relaxed or tensionless state with precise edge control. When spreads are short or production is limited, spreaders are the right solution for cost-effective and efficient spreading with accurate edge control. Eastman offers both automatic and manually-operated spreading systems. Available in manual or motorized configurations in various roll quantity configurations, carousels and roll racks can be used for storage or as a means for supply to cutting tables or systems.
