Eastman Machine Company, manufacturer of handheld cutting machines, automated cutting systems, spreading and material handling systems recently announced the launch of the Eagle-C125 conveyor cutting system in three new configurations. The latest release features several options aimed to minimise overall factory space required but maintain complete cutting automation for industrial cutting applications. The Eagle-C125 will be demonstrated at trade events focused on technical textiles and composites during October and November 2019.
The Eagle C125 conveyor is a computer controlled (CNC) ply-cutting system engineered for single- to low-ply automatic cutting of flexible fabrics; composite reinforcements like fiberglass, carbon and aramid; industrial fabrics and insulations as well as traditional textiles. It has the ability to continuously convey rolled material goods with consistent speed and control. This computer-controlled cutting system requires minimal operator guidance to automatically feed and spread material to the identified start position. The conveyor system is available in nearly a dozen different widths from 1.5 to over 4.3 m wide and several lengths.
The third quarter 2019 highlight is the release of a new, 2.4 m length, single-frame design in 1,500, 1,800 and 2,000 mm widths. Following 25 years of successful and continued production of longer conveyor systems, the 2.4 m configuration is anticipated to answer the need of small and large companies who are eager to minimise production space. The C125 conveyor system is an ideal choice for companies needing to cut long parts, require continuous conveying or simply want to minimise the material handling commonly associated with a static table cutting system. It is the system of choice of thousands of manufacturers around the world for its industrial build, durability of critical components and proven rack and pinion drive system. The Eagle-C125 system features cutting speeds up to 1,500 mm per second.
