life protection. Hence, airbag fabrics must have flawless
quality. Renowned weavers of airbag fabrics take no risk; they
rely on Loepfe’s CUT-iT to ensure their top quality fabrics have
a perfectly defined and uniform selvedge.
Making use of the unrivalled features of
CUT-iT during the fabric production process ensures a quick
return on investment for safety-critical products such as
airbags. The applications where CUT-iT improves a product’s
quality are not limited to this showcase. All over the world,
producers of high-end technical fabrics specify CUT-iT of Loepfe
to guarantee a fabric selvedge without compromise. A top quality
and uniform selvedge are highly valued when the yield in post
processing is dependent on the uniform quality of the fabrics.
Coated fabrics such as tarpaulins or
sailcloth can only be perfect if the base material used has top
aspect selvedge guaranteed by CUT-iT.
The CUT-iT offers precise controllable
settings for Loepfe´s hot wire cutters. The unit memorizes
settings for later use. The client-server mode is very useful on
tape weaving machines. CUT-iT has no analogue controls like
other controllers and hence has better resistance to tampering.
