Cutting solutions for Fiberglass, Carbon & other materials used in Wind Energy
Working with an automatic system for cutting long or short reinforcement panels typical to the blade, nacelle housing and spinners, is fast, accurate and minimizes material handling. Eastman has a wide range of equipment and customer experience specific to cutting e-glass, carbon, and aramid multi-axial fabrics common to the wind energy sector.
A combination tool head featuring two, or three standard cutting knives for cutting flexible materials (fiberglass, carbon, aramid, coremat, etc.) may be combined with a router on the same cutting gantry in order to address the needs for foam core, balsa and other core materials.
Success in an automated cutting environment can be measured with reductions in manual labor, decreased scrap of expensive composite materials, improved throughput, reduced time to market and improved quality of cut parts.
A wide range of manual cutting machines suitable for the same materials, including options powered by air for wet environments, positions Eastman as a one-stop provider for all your cutting and material handling needs.
Eastman equipment meets recognized international protection ratings requirements and optional accessories include industry-approved inks for high-speed printing; sealed control & computer enclosures to offer dust and water resistant protection in harsh or high particulate environments and other compliant accessories as demanded to meet the strictest guidelines.
