What we mean, is to use better tools and technology. Using track end cutters is one of the best ways to scale up a fabric manufacturing operation if you work with large pieces of fabric.
They are typically mounted on a table, and have a predefined track, so they cut down dramatically on user error. Depending on your situation, you can even use multiple at once as in the picture shown to have even greater effect!

What is the best way to lift and move large rolls of industrial fabric?
To save the backs and knees of your employees, manual lifting is generally a bad option. Back injuries are one of the most common workplace safety and health concerns. for more information on back safety, see our previous blog: Save Your Back—Go Automatic.
Dollies are excellent options for moving things around, but when it comes to lifting, you’d still have to move it from one contraption to another—likely using backs and knees—and that’s only if you have a machine to lift it and not your employees’ backs. Pallet jacks would be a good option, but they aren’t really made for lifting rolls of industrial fabric.
Forklifts are excellent for moving large, heavy objects and lifting them much higher than any one person could. But just like pallet jacks, they aren’t made for lifting rolls. They just aren’t the right shape. They are also large, cumbersome, and require special training to use.
The best thing to use when moving and lifting large fabric rolls is an On-a-Roll® heavy-duty roll lift. These lifters allow one operator to easily lift and position large and heavy rolls while providing a safe, effortless, and efficient solution for handling. Fitted with wheels and perfectly shaped to accommodate large fabric rolls, there will be no need for back strains or large bulky equipment in your workspace.
Save your back, money, time, and space with these highly efficient, budget friendly, easy-to-use lifters. Give us a call today and we’ll set you up with the perfect machine!
Automatic Lift Tables Can Reduce Back Injury?
Among America’s most common workplace safety and health injuries are back strains. Approximately 80% of the population will have a back injury during their lifetime, so workers need to be prepared and take care of their backs.
Back injuries can be very painful and have the potential to significantly impact daily activities and work. While back injuries are usually caused after years of poor back maintenance, a single event can make all those years catch up fast. Back pain is most often the result of muscle and ligament strains, especially in a factory that requires heavy lifting. You always hear the advice to lift with your legs rather than your back, but it’s hard to follow that advice day in and day out when your knees are starting to hurt.
Automatic lifting tables are here to save you and your fellow workers from back injury. They raise and position materials in such a way as to reduce potential injuries in a wide array of industries. Lift tables make it easier than ever to adjust the height of the piece of upholstery you are working on. Instead of having to constantly readjust your position, and bending lower and lower, you can raise it up to a level that is comfortable. Our line of Rexel automatic lifting tables are the ultimate workstations and back savers. With height-positioning systems and steel frames and tabletops, you can adjust these tables to the correct height, and they won’t collapse beneath hundreds of pounds of weight
Other cool features include foot pedals for quick and easy adjustments, tool holders on the sides of the table, connection outputs for air tools, and a safety feature that prevents the table from dropping if it’s ever accidentally cut off from its power supply.
With one of these tables in your shop, you’ll never tweak your back again from carrying heavy bolts of fabric. Your knees will rejoice in their newfound salvation. Give us a call today and we’ll help you find the table that is right for your workspace!
Looking to store Carpet, Fabric, Vinyl...? Look no further!
When it comes to storing fabric, there is a vast difference between sewing fabric and heavy-duty industrial fabric. While bolts of sewing fabric are easy to store on store shelves, in baskets, or over racks, industrial fabrics require something sturdier.
Industrial fabrics differ from textile (apparel) fabrics in several ways. Industrial fabrics are made of higher fibers, yarns, and chemicals to prevent failures which could have dangerous consequences. Functionality is the most important feature because the fabric must be able to handle the environmental factors and structural requirements of the application.
Manufacturing industrial fabrics is more difficult because higher value fibers and materials can be more difficult to manipulate due to the intrinsic performance specifications. These are fabrics that cannot just be rolled up on a normal fabric bolt or folded and placed neatly on shelves
So, what is the best way to store rolls of industrial fabric?
The answer is a roll rack. Our A-frame heavy duty racks are great for storing heavy industrial fabrics from vinyl to polyester. They can move around the workspace easily and store those large rolls out of the way.
The rack will allow you to easily handle rolled goods and spread them onto your cutting system while maintaining precise alignment of each ply. There is a center support for wider machines, and for narrow heavy materials.
Give us a call today and we’ll help you find the best rack for your business!
