Eastman exhibits at Composites 2010

Cutting systems manufacturer Eastman Machine Company will exhibit at the Composites 2010 exhibition in Las Vegas on 9-11 February.

Eastman will operate a 60” wide x 16’ long automated CNC static cutting table during the show, cutting glass fibre, Kevlar and other composite materials.

The Eastman M9000 is a single to low-ply cutting system designed to provide superior cutting performance and increased throughput. This fully automated cutter plotter is capable of marking, drilling and punching virtually any flexible material at speeds of up to 60 inches per second (152.4 cm/s). It is ideal for sample making and prototypes.

The material is spread across the static table and its internal blower system ensures material hold-down for cutting accuracy. It registers accuracy of +/- 0.015 inches (0.4 mm), with higher accuracies available. The standard table top surface is porous plastic, but is optionally available in Lexan®, Urethane, PVC, and microfibre.

Eastman says the M9000 offers optimum material yields, reduces labour costs and lowers operating costs.

Eastman will exhibit in booth 1009 at Composites 2010. Organised by the American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA), the show takes place at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas on 9-11 February. 

Eastman Machine Company, Buffalo, New York, USA, manufactures cutting machines, automated cutting systems, material handling equipment, and software solutions.
