Product Summary

Blue Jay Spread and End Cutter

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 for cutting in both horizontal and vertical directions.

A more robust Heavy-Duty Blue Jay is available for tougher materials, such as fiberglass.
