ACT have a cut-to-length machine and receding head presses enabling us to convert roll and blank materials for our customers.  We can supply cut parts, or we can use our other manufacturing processes to convert them into finished products.  We have a wide range of sewing machines along with skilled machinists who can transform the cut materials into a finished product.


ACT uses rear feeding receding head presses of up to 80 Tonnes, which guarantees consistent efficient cuts through a wide range of materials, of different thicknesses. With large bed sizes of up to 1.4 meters we are able to cut small intricate pieces all the way up to the largest interior trim systems including luggage covers. In order to minimise waste, we ensure optimum part nesting is employed. Material characteristics dependant we are also able to cut multiple layers, maximising throughput.

ACT is happy to offer standalone die-cutting service for customers and we would be happy to demonstrate our capabilities in our production facilities which are used in the manufacture our own products such as:

  • Luggage covers
  • Barrier nets
  • Sunshades
  • Loadfloors
  • Composite panels
  • Carpet wrapped loadfloors
  • NVH pads


We have single needle, twin-needle, zigzag and CNC sewing machines arranged in a dedicated cell for the manufacture of sewn assemblies.  We can manufacture simple assemblies like Velcro / elasticated webbing straps through to complicated safety critical components like our own automotive safety barrier net.

Our CNC sewing machines have the assistance of servo-controlled feed systems which give a precise stroke / feed timing, to maximise the 2,200 stitches per minute output of our equipment. The stitch can be fully programmed before the needle starts, giving the added advantage of automatically back tack & burning of stitching the ends for a non-frayed finish.
