HQ can do all the cutting you'll ever need, from bulk cutting through to sample cutting, Block Fusing , Band Knifing and we can even store your fabric free of charge.
We have a modern light filled and secure factory in Avondale with parking at the door.Please get in touch we have the experience you need,we are friendly and happy to chat at anytime.
Our Roller Fusing Press takes fabric/ fuse blocks up to 90 cm wide and length is dependent on the block. We have done up to about 5 metre long pieces so length is not a problem for those one-off jobs.We offer Block Fusing as part of our cutting service so all pattern pieces marked for Block Fusing will get processed as part of the cutting job.We are also very happy to do the block fusing for one-off sample jacket/coat lengths.Our press can also be used to preshrink Metallic fabrics, Linen, Cashmere, Wool and other fabrics where the shrinkage can be excessive. This prevents shrinkage in the finished garments when they are being pressed.
Band Knife Cutting
When you need precision and/or intricate cutting, these pieces are all cut on a band knife. This gives the most accurate finish possible.
All our samples are cut with the fabric layered between a bottom sheet of paper and the marker. This means that the pieces are cut as accurately as possible.
We have been offering a sample cutting service for nearly 30 years and attempt to turn these around in 24 hours. We cut Main, Contrast/, Self-Fusing pieces and complete any block fusing required.
We can make manual markers from your card patterns or produce our own plotted markers using your digitised patterns.We operate a Gerber Computer Plotter and we can convert your digitised patterns from Pad and Lectra, we also work closely with a digitising bureau to convert from StyleCad. We have found that using digitised markers cuts down on the time to produce markers significantly and if there is ever a recut of the style, we already have the marker on file and can re-plot it saving more time. This speeds up work turnaround especially in busy seasonal times.
Marker Making and Digitised Markers
Do you have problems storing your fabric during the cutting seasons? We can help you out as we have safe storage under our tables where your fabric can be kept separately and out of sight of other customers.
We also have another service we can offer.
