Blackman & White manufacture a range of flatbed cutting machines that are precisely designed for the exacting task of cutting complex shapes required for the flexible roofing industry.Designed for cutting kevlar reinforced fabric, heavy canvas, woven nylon and vulcanized rubber materials and the laminates that are used in the flexible roofing industry, Blackman & White cutting machines are able to cut very large panels from a single bolt of the cloth, and maintain a high level of precision required so that the stretched structure does not contain any surface stress lines or wrinkles.
The materials used are often heavy and strong, and must be firmly held down to the surface of the cutting table by a strong vacuum system so that the cutting blade does not cause the material to bunch or roll. Our vacuum tables are powerful enough to allow eight layers to be cut simultaneously with a blade, greatly increasing production rates. Laser cutting heads, usually in the range of 240 watts are also used in this industry as they can seal the edges of some of the synthetic materials.
