Decorator Industries: Ultra-Sonic Success

The Carlson Design Ultra-Sonic Cutting Head is world’s simplest sealed-edge cutting solution when speed and accuracy are essential. We ensure a standardized and easily supported system by integrating a JTE Machine Ultra-Sonic cutting tool onto our rigid Pro PTi-132″ gantry. At 132″ wide, we can Plot/Cut up to 120″ (3m) wide material. The system rides on a 11’x16′ Phillocraft vacuum table, with a custom-drilled metal cutting surface and is driven by our Plotmaster Software suite — including autonesting.

Using the Carlson Design Plotter/Cutter with Hot Knife tool attachment they can produce the perfect sealed edge, to the exact size, with the least amount of material waste — all at the click of a button.

Laurel Awning: System’s for Success

Laurel Awning, located in Apollo, PA — a suburb just outside of Pittsburgh — has made over 25 miles of cuts after only three months with their Carlson Design PT-96″ plotter/cutter. That’s a lot! President Greg Schmieler reports, “We’re down to 1.25hr to 1.5hr to process, draw, and cut a canopy job. That used to take us on average 6-8 hours”. The speed at which they adopted this new technology is not only a testament to the simplicity of our hardware and software, but the value of establishing a good system. It’s also just the beginning…
