Pinning Table

For the alignment of Striped, Checked, Diamond and all patterned fabric.

The table top has a large amount of holes lined with brass inserts for the placing of pins. Once you have decided which holes to use pins are placed through the holes on the table top. These fall down to the lower table and by pressing the up or down buttons the pins rise through the table top as the fabric layers increase. This enables the fabric to be pinned without distorting the pattern lay or bending pins.

These tables are manufactured to customers dimensions, with or without wheels.

Pins are placed through the holes on the table top which drop down to the inner table leaving 5mm of pin protruding through the table top. Layers of fabric are placed in a relaxed mode and over the pins. As layers build up the pins are raised through pressing the Up button to allow extra layers of fabric to be positioned.

Once the required layers of fabric have been positioned and the lay pattern is placed over the pinned area, cutting can now take place.

Option (1) using a straight knife:

As the cutter follows the lay pattern and comes towards the pins, these can be pulled out manually to continue cutting.

Option (2) using a band knife:

After placing the lay plan over the pins the area can be clamped and pins removed and then slid over onto a band knife cutting table.
