A variety of materials can be processed without tooling including:

We also have other options for material and textile cutting such as:
- Sonic cutting
- RF cutting
- Narrow fabric up to 18" wide
- Hot knife cutting
- Traditional lay-up and cut tables
All of our operators are trained and experienced in both large and small volume projects.
Textile Die Cutting
When die cutting, we believe it is important to ensure that the best layout is used to reduce material usage. That is why our system digitizes the CAD date, template, or pattern for your project. The template or pattern will be nested to provide the greatest yield. In addition, we can handle both sheet or roll form up to 78" wide.
We have several other processes available including:
- Clicker Presses
- CNC Presets
- Heated Platen Presses
- Roll Feed Belt Presses
We will be sure to match the process to your needs and materials. We can also quickly design any tooling you may need when using patterns, blueprints, CAD data, or mylars.
We can service high volume cuttings for these materials:
- Ply Fabrics
- Spacer Fabric
- Filter Media
- Light Gauge Metal Screen
- Plastic Sheet Stock
- Engineered Mesh
- Light Chipboard
Textile Slitting and Re-Rolling
If your material is on a roll, our Re-Rolling and Slitting systems can process it (up to 102" wide rolls). We currently have five systems available for all of your re-rolling and slitting needs.
Some of our offerings include:
- Re-rolling two materials together to create a bi-layer or two-ply finished roll.
- Fabric Slitting materials one inch or wider depending on your requirements on individual cores.
- Using a blade cutter on materials as narrow as fifteen mm and a two inch ID papercore which provides you a slit roll to fit your specific needs.
