S135 Static Table - Interlayer Cutter
Single- to low-ply precision cutting, marking, and punching of glass interlayer material
More details ...

Eastman’s static table system is capable of cutting, marking, and punching virtually any flexible material at speeds of up to 60 inches per second (152.4 cm/sec.). The static table system is available in a range of system lengths and widths to meet the demands for prototypes, one-offs and full-production runs. The system’s high-precision configuration features multi-axis motion for more defined and accurate cuts. Material is spread across the static table by an operator or with the use of a pneumatic gripper bar. The open plenum vacuum system design ensures evenly dispersed airflow for optimal material hold-down. This computer-controlled system features zoning capabilities to enable cutting in one area while the operator is simultaneously picking parts in another, maximizing daily production capacity.

  • Choice of standard, heavy-duty, or fiber tool head, featuring individually aligned and calibrated tool spindles with your choice of over 60 blades, punches, and notches.
  • A library feature within the operating control software allows the operator to save commonly used tool pressures and blade assignments based on job and material files.
  • Prevent unauthorized changes to the system and software with restricted login access.

Multi-Roll Carousel
Simple, motorized access to multiple material rolls for end-of-table spreading
More details ...

The Multi-Roll Carousel system, available in many sizes and styles, provides tremendously simple access to multiple material rolls for end-of-table spreading, using minimal floor space. With the press of a button, material rolls turn around the carousel, stopping on the desired roll. The motorized textile carousel increases useable storage capacity by applying the product to operator principle in underutilized overhead space. Mechanical storage eliminates wasteful and potentially harmful steps for stocking and retrieving rolled materials. The Multi-Carousel accomplishes this by automating retrieval and presenting rolls at an ergonomically optimum height which reduces unnecessary bending, walking, lifting, and pushing which will reduce work-related injuries.  

  • Easy mobility with motorized control
  • Simplified roll loading right off the floor or cart
  • Shielded motors prevent materials from being soiled
  • Dual controls for loading and operating ease
  • Forward/Reverse push buttons with security keypad and e-stop
  • Single tower, multiple tower or overhead configurations available
  • Casters and track configuration
  • Material can feed from either side
Power Feed Systems
The Power Feed System continuously supplies material for the length of marker or until the roll is consumed.
More details ...

The Power Feed System continuously supplies material for the length of marker or until the roll is consumed. It automatically adjusts and maintains consistent tension for any material type. An optional photo-electric edge control unit ensures precise alignment of each ply. Available in one-roll, two-roll, three-roll, six-roll with cart, or flat fold configurations.
