ACG Nyström, a member of TMAS, the Swedish textile machinery association, will demonstrate the benefits of the automated Talon 75 multi-ply cutter at the forthcoming Texprocess exhibition in Frankfurt, Germany, from June 21-24.
This follows a new agreement with Eastman Machine Company, of Buffalo, New York, building on a partnership dating back over a century – combined, the two companies have installed over 3,000 automated cutting systems worldwide and distributed hundreds of thousands of manual cutting machines.
As a well-established full-service supplier of textile machinery and software, ACG Nyström, part of the ACG Group, will serve as a hub for imported Eastman equipment, parts and consumables, enabling shorter lead times and direct delivery within the European Union.
The Talon 75 is capable of cutting up to 7.5cm of compressed materials common to the sewn products and technical textiles industries. The machine is engineered to automatically pull stacked material plies from the spreading table to a modular, bristle-block conveyor bed for reciprocating knife cutting of patterns. Precise system operations with state-of-the-art motion control communications offer an industrial-strength solution.
Industry 4.0 ready
Eastman’s Talon multi-ply cutting systems are Industry 4.0 ready and equipped with the latest in condition based predictive maintenance technology. Their robust design utilises state-of-the-art motors and amplifiers that automatically detect changes in critical components to notify operators well in advance of maintenance prompts. Also on display in Frankfurt will be Eastman’s ES-960, a material spreader capable of fast and easy spreading heights up to 20cm.
