About Our Upholstery CNC Cutter

Flexibility is key, as upholstery materials and styles used in your furniture designs could range from plain, textured, patterned, leather and synthetic leather or even laminated foam.

Patterned fabrics can be matched to the standards you require using tools, in the same way as manually or using camera recognition to automate the process.

For companies manufacturing a mix of fabric and leather seating, our unique upholstery CNC cutter can be configured to cut hides as well as soft covers. Purchasing one piece of equipment vastly reduces your capital outlay.

Customising furniture, such as riser recliner chairs and cushions designed to suit the needs of an individual user, can be faultlessly made to measure with our software.

Marking the chosen textile for several such items with multiple permutations is easily accommodated with our interactive nesting packages, whether the run is short or long.

Understanding Automatic Fabric Cutting Machines

An automated fabric cutting machine is a computer-controlled piece of equipment used in the textile and fabric industry to cut upholstery materials accurately and quickly. These machines use digital design files to create cutting patterns that are subsequently carried out by a laser or blade cutter.

Their importance stems from their capacity to minimise human error, increase speed and precision, and maximise material usage. In the upholstery industry, automating the cutting process reduces waste and boosts production efficiency, resulting in lower costs and better-quality products.

Features and Capabilities

Advanced Software Integration: To turn design files into cutting patterns, automatic cloth cutting machines use highly complex software. This minimises human error and allows for precise customisation.

Pattern Recognition: Our upholstery computer numerical controlled cutters are equipped with technology that recognises and aligns patterns on materials precisely, guaranteeing accurate and consistent cuts.

Multiple-Layer Cutting: Our machines can cut many layers of cloth simultaneously, saving you time and material waste.

Types of Automatic Fabric Cutting Machines

At Assyst Bullmer, we supply single ply cutting machines and multi ply cutters  to meet your production needs.

Single Ply Cutting Machines:

For excellent precision when cutting single layers of upholstery and fabrics, our single ply cutting machines ensure all materials are lined up perfectly thanks to sophisticated automated scanning technology. We have single ply cutting machines able to handle an array of upholstery materials and leather.

Multi Ply Upholstery Cutting Machines:

Able to cut multiple layers of fabric at once, our multi ply automatic fabric cutting machines can be used alongside fabric spreading machines to optimise your production flow and process. If you are on a much larger scale and looking for efficient mass production, these machines increase cutting speed and are designed to cut large quantities of the same pattern.

Tasks that would have normally taken us a day or more to complete using our engineering CAD system now takes literally minutes, achieving design intent without the need of multiple iterations and the associated frustration. The software is very intuitive and has been quickly learned by production staff. This has been such a time saver that myself and the other staff using it actually find it fun.
