Press Release

Eastman Machine Company, manufacturer of industrial cutting, spreading, and material handling equipment announces plans to demonstrate smart advanced manufacturing in collaboration with a leading digital automation technology provider at JEC World (Paris, France) on April 25-27 in Hall 6, Stand D59.

For the first time, Eastman will showcase full-scale automation in conjunction with its Eagle C135 conveyorized cutting system. Demonstrations will be held at 10 AM and 3 PM each day, highlighting the features gained with connectivity and data analysis of Industry 4.0 in an Eastman-powered cutting room, including increased output, reduction of waste, and minimal human errors.

The Eagle C135 continuously conveys rolled material good with consistent speed and control, delivering unrivaled levels of material utilization. The computer controlled (CNC) ply-cutting system is engineered for single- to low-ply automatic cutting of flexible fabrics and requires minimal operator guidance to automatically feed and spread material. The conveyor system is completely customizable based on application needs and available footprint.

It is the system of choice for thousands of manufacturers around the world due to its industrial build, durable components, and proven rack & pinion drive system. The Eagle C135 system features cutting speeds up to 60 inches per second (152cm/second). Material to be cut at the fair includes Vectorply e-glass, NEXX-Technologies prepreg carbon, and Lantor Soric®.
