Eastman Machine Company, a US manufacturer of cutting room equipment, has appointed iSpecc Ltd of the UK to represent its line of automated cutting systems and material handling equipment for the composites market.

The two companies will appear together at the upcoming JEC World in Paris, the premier event uniting the global composite industry over three days in March. A range of bespoke automated solutions custom-engineered for the industry will be demonstrated in Eastman’s stand (Hall 6, D59).

“We are excited about the partnership with iSpecc for a number of reasons, including their ability to localise project management together with the technical and commercial skills needed to address a wide range of customer applications. We look forward to collaboratively growing our businesses,” says Trevor Stevenson, Eastman’s vice president.

iSpecc offers a variety of equipment and industrial services to the aerospace, automotive, energy, defense and advanced composites sectors with in-depth knowledge of capital plant including Eastman cutting systems, robotic production cells, industrial ovens, presses, hot drape formers, RTM equipment and advanced mould/tools.

A demonstration facility featuring a range of Eastman solutions is expected to be established together with iSpecc by 2020. The site will be open for cutting trials and software training to all customers in the EU.
