At the heart of the Eastman line are the reliable and versatile
classic Blue Streak II® 629 and Brute® 627 straight knives. Whether
denim or delicates, sailcloth or synthetics, there is an Eastman straight knife
perfectly suited for virtually every cutting requirement.
straight knives are available with both standard and heavy duty motors, a
choice of four blade strokes and even a dual speed option so that each machine
specification can be matched to the customer's needs.
Because of their
low profile baseplate, narrow silhouette standard and superb balance, Eastman
straight knives are especially suited to spreads that require tight turns and
high accuracy with minimal distortion from bottom to top ply, at cutting
heights of up to 11½".
For cutting large radius curves or
straight lines, one of Eastman's wide range of round knife machine is ideally
suited for the job. Eastman's round knives are built with the same quality and
attention to detail that have made Eastman straight knives the #1 choice in
cutting rooms around the world.
Eastman's Cardinal® series
includes round knives designed to handle most standard round knife
applications. With four different blade sizes, horsepower ratings and custom
engineered gear ratios to choose from, Eastman's cutting experts are able to
