CUTTING & MARKING
Commonly regarded as the most important manufacturing process, cutting and/or marking is where the product gets its desired dimensions. ASCO cutting and marking equipment ensures these processes are achieved at any level of quality and automation desired by the customer.
Depending on the type of fabric and application it is used for, ASCO has several standard cutting techniques available:
- Rotating knife; a low-cost cutting solution suitable for most materials
- Ultrasonic cutting; for a sealed edge without fraying
- Crush cutting system; primarily for cutting glass-fiber based materials, but widely applicable
In addition, ASCO can integrate other, less standard cutting solutions, such as heated knife cutting, razor blade cutting, laser cutting and scissor cutting. At ASCO we also testing facilities to do cutting tests and give you the best advice on how to cut your materials.
