By Blackman & White on November 6th, 2019

Blackman & White has announced it will be showcasing its Orion cutting system on stand CMP.41.EL at the upcoming METSTRADE Show.

Taking place at the RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre between 19th and 21st November 2019, the METSTRADE Show is the world’s largest trade exhibition of marine equipment, materials and systems.

Blackman & White’s Orion flatbed cutting machine is a quick and accurate low ply cutting/plotting system with an unrivalled range of blade and pen tool options in its class. Built for high-volume production, the Orion is designed for companies looking for an easy-to-use, affordable and reliable cutting system. The company will also be demonstrating a full workflow from digitising to nesting and then cutting. The digitising solution enables templates to be photographed and saved digitally which can then be edited before being exported to the nesting software to optimise material usage, before being sent to the machine for fast and accurate marking and cutting.

Renowned for its flatbed laser systems, the company will be happy to discuss its laser cutting systems for parachutes, sails, kites and other leisure industry materials. Blackman & White’s unique expertise in marine applications has benefited companies globally – markedly improving their productivity and delivering a fast ROI.

As the UK’s only manufacturer of cutting systems – with all machines designed and manufactured from start to finish at the company’s factory in Maldon, Essex – Blackman & White has over 50 years’ experience and is able to offer complete solutions. Highly regarded for quality and innovation within the boat building, sail making and composite markets to name a few, Blackman & White works continuously to develop cutting solutions for handling even the most difficult to manage materials accurately and efficiently.

Alex White, managing director of Blackman & White, comments: “We are looking forward to meeting visitors to METSTRADE and discussing how we are able to offer the perfect cutting solutions for their businesses’ needs.”

The METSTRADE Show takes place at the RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre between 19th and 21st November 2019. For more information, please visit
