Known for creating die cutting machines for the educational market, Accucut sought to branch into other markets and chose the popular hobby quilting market for its next large product launch. The design development included multiple quilting focus groups which revealed that a quilting die cutter had to be easy to use and fold-able for fast transportation and storage.
The resulting design, the Accuquilt Go, is the first product of its kind. Two wings provide a platform for the rollers to press a die to cut up to six layers fabric at once. A magnetic ledge locks the wings shut for transportation. Cutting precision, ease of use and the design make it a bestseller in the quilting community.
After the success of the Accuquilt Go, Accucut needed an entry level machine at a lower price point. Although half the size of the Go, the Go Baby needed to maintain the same feature set - compact folding, easy carry handle, magnetic latch. Due to the simplified construction and an intelligent part break, the manufacturing cost went down to 25% of the Go's cost. A solid forged aluminum frame carries the rollers and the gears. Three symmetric injection molded plastic parts cover this frame and build the fold-able wings.
