cadComplete Accuracy Over And Over Again Owen CAD Cutting Service is available to all manufacturers of textile products. We can take your product, regardless of its complexity, digitise it and cut it over and over again with complete accuracy. Our computerised system can cut parts quickly and easily and we have experience of handling a vast array of fabrics from the simplest to the highly technical.

The CAD/CAM Facility Our CAD/CAM facility can support many file formats including .DXF, .NTV, .PLT, .PUT, .ABL and Gerber files .NC and .CUT or alternatively we can digitise hard copy patterns. However if you don't have a pattern you can still use the cutting service. At the CAD facility we have the capability of turning actual products, or just sizes, into digital format for cutting. If that isn't enough we can convert 3D shapes into digitised patterns. This means we can offer our cutting service even if patterns or templates do not already exist. Also there is no restriction when digitising full size patterns or templates, the entire 11m x 1.6m table can be used or if patterns are larger we have the software to slice and manipulate them into panel sized sections.

Revised And Modified Quickly And Easily Once we have the digital pattern we can refine it with you and perfect it before cutting. This will ensure that fabric waste is kept to an absolute minimum. Patterns can be easily catalogued and retrieved making repeat ordering simple and fast. At any time the digital patterns can be revised or modified easily and quickly. We have storage space for clients' fabric therefore increasing efficiency when reordering.

Computer Controlled Versatility And Efficiency The system comprises computer controlled cutting equipment on a vacuum table approximately 11m x 1.6m. The cutter is equipped with a rotary blade, tangential blade, hole punch, olfa wheel and notch tool allowing us to process any sewn textile component with maximum speed and efficiency.
