The Talon offers an industrial-strength solution for high-ply production facilities with capabilities to cut up to 3 in. (7 cm) of compressed material goods.

Product Summary

The Eastman Talon Multi-Ply is engineered and manufactured in the USA 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. The Talon 25 can cut up to 1.18 in. (3 cm) of compressed material goods, while the Talon 75 has the capabilities to cut up to 3 in. (7 cm) of compressed material goods.

The Talon has been engineered to meet the demands of clients in growing market segments like industrial fabrics and composites industries; customers cutting traditional -as well as- modern technical materials like kevlar, fiberglass, nonwoven polyesters, foam-backed vinyl and other industrial fabrics.
