A Pathfinder automatic cutter will release your highly paid designers from the labour of scissors and chalk!

A Pathfinder L-Series (low-ply) cutter fitted with a felt bed and high speed driven knife make easy work of a broad range of fashion and apparel materials. Fabric is held perfectly flat under vacuum and cuts cleanly and quickly without leaving threads or attachments first time, every time.

Go from design to cut shapes in minutes not hours!

Pathfinder cutters are fully compatible with your existing CAD software, allowing you to get your markers into production in just a few clicks.
