Eastman Machine Company and ExactFlat, a provider of 3D to 2D digital patterning software, have announced a collaboration to increase the efficiency of preparing and cutting patterns with digitally printed graphics. Eastman is a cutting machine manufacturer, providing custom engineered solutions and innovative technologies for a variety of industries.

ExactFlat 3D to 2D digital patterning software is the leading tool set for creating flat patterns with graphics perfectly aligned. Once 2D patterns are created, they can be exported and cut on Eastman’s automated cutting systems equipped with VisionPRO. VisionPRO combines a high resolution camera system with state-of-the-art software algorithms to scan pattern contours. The result is accurate cut paths around printed shapes, registration marks, or repeat patterns. Use of both technologies can save days or even weeks of production time. VisionPRO is an accessory available for Eastman’s conveyor and static table cutting systems, according to a company press release.

Companies using legacy drape-tape-cut manual pattern making, or those using cutting systems with only 2D CAD will find the new workflow both faster and simpler. The technologies are ideal for realising design and cutting room efficiencies in apparel and sportswear, display advertising, automotive, upholstered furniture, and technical textile workflows.

Mark Jewell, founder of ExactFlat said, “The VisionPRO system is a major advance in cutting technology. With VisionPRO and ExactFlat customers can transform to a 100 per cent digital workflow which saves time and improves flexibility. The use of both technologies also leads the way to dramatic cost savings. Collaborating with Eastman is a natural fit for us. They are an innovative, fast moving leader that puts customer benefit first. ExactFlat is delighted to work with companies that are defining and implementing the next generation of manufacturing technologies. Eastman is exactly that kind of company.”

Trevor Stevenson, vice president at Eastman said, “Time pressured industries are facing challenges that cannot be solved by legacy processes. 3D design is becoming essential and digitally printed textiles are becoming more and more common. ExactFlat is the clear leader in 3D to 2D digital patterning and when implemented with our VisionPRO system, customers find the time pressure will be shifted to competitors trying to catch-up. We look forward to providing a superior offering that helps both companies further our respective leadership.” (GK)
