Blue Jay with Slitters
The Blue Jay is available as a stand-alone end cutting unit or with an optional Pull-Off for even faster cutting production and improved accuracy. The system requires only one operator to spread and cut material with the simple press of a button. The Pull-Off, a moveable pneumatic clamp, grabs the ply to be spread and pulls it down the table to the desired length. The cutting attachment, a powerful 5 inch (12.7cm) round knife, automatically drives across the width of the fabric in a guided track for repeated, perfectly straight-line cutting.
For added panel cutting features, Eastman’s 548BK round knife slitters can be added to the Blue Jay End Cutting System. This will allow for cutting in both horizontal and vertical directions, maximizing material utilization and further decrease labor costs.
Each 548BK slitter can be adjusted on the track to within 3″ of the width of the table, allowing for complete coverage of the width of the material being cut. The number of slitters fitted on the track is material width and table size dependent. Plexiglass covers shield the cutting action providing for safe operation of the system and the material feeding unit.
