Eastman Machine Company (Buffalo, NY, U.S.) announced on June 10 that it has appointed Technical Cutting (TeCS, Nottinghamshire, U.K.) to represent Eastman’s line of automated cutting systems in the U.K. and Ireland. To offer local testing and education, TeCS strategically established an Eastman technical demonstration facility inside composites specialist Kamm Projects Ltd. in Newcastle, U.K.
Eastman notes that TeCS is a team of experienced engineers, technicians and CAD/CAM specialists, and the company has extensive experience in cutting room implementation, applications analysis and service across a variety of machine manufactures. With decades of hands-on customer facing support, specific to automatic cutting and material handling, Eastman felt TeCS was a natural fit. “Eastman is part of our DNA,” says Shaun Doohan, owner of TeCS. “That DNA has flowed through nearly every cutting room we have visited in 30 years of service.”
The demonstration facility boasts a fully automated, CNC-controlled Eastman conveyor system to use for cutting trials and software training. Eastman says that as a direct result of the TeCS team’s ambition and flexibility, the site opened in early June and is now available by appointment with TeCS. “Having a team that really understands cutting solutions and is also capable of providing valuable support and service mirrors our business concept around the world,” says Elizabeth McGruder, Eastman’s vice president for European sales and marketing. “A local team will provide more options, increased savings and knowledgeable support for all of our customers in the U.K.”
With an Eastman technical demonstrator facility placed in Kamm Projects Ltd., Martin Meir, the managing director of Kamm Projects, states how proud he is to demonstrate how two industry leaders work together to produce a flawless product: “The automated technology which Eastman has extended to our facility has given us the confidence to create, design and continually meet the evolving array of design requirements. We are proud to welcome the Eastman conveyor system to our facility and look forward to hosting Eastman training and demonstration events in the near future.”
