The Eastman Blue Jay enables one operator to spread fabrics up to 144 inches wide and 32 feet in length with efficiency and accuracy. With the Blue Jay, the fabric is located at the end of each table. Each ply is pulled from the end of the table to the desired spread length and cut off. Successive plies are stacked with a high degree of accuracy up to a maximum height of nine inches.

The Blue Jay can handle large-diameter rolls or thick materials. Depending on the fabric, the Blue Jay can spread several plys each time it travels down the table. It processes vinyls, canvas, laminates, poly blends and a variety of industrial fabrics.

The Blue Jay consists of three components:

  • The Puller: The puller is the moveable pneumatic clamp, which clamps the plys to be spread and pulls them down the table to the desired length.
  • The Cutting Attachment: The Blue Jay's cutting attachment features a powerful Eastman 5-inch round knife, which is automatically driven across the width of the fabric in a guided track. Single or multiple plys up to one inch total thickness can be cut.
  • The Let-Off Optional material let-off devices are available: the fully automatic Power Cradle and various roll stands for single or multiple rolls.
