The 350HF System cuts virtually any fabric up to .16 in (4 mm) thick to enhance corporate, prmotional, team and custom products (see sample list below). Loosely woven fabrics, 4-way stretch or materials that fray easily may require an adhesive backing for stability. If there's any concern, Ioline is happy to cut samples prior to purchase. Simply contact Customer Service to arrange to submit swatches for testing.
If you don't need to cut chenille, thick leather, industrial or other dense materials, the Ioline 300 System may be a better fit. Except for cutting force, it's identical to the 350HF. Learn more about the 300 System »

Create your own sew disks. The 350HF System produces outline stitch instructions for:
- [+] Create designs in just 5 easy steps
- STEP 1:
Select a stock design or create your own in a vector-based drawing program (e.g. Adobe Illustrator®, CorelDRAW!® or embroidery software). For kiss-cut graphics, place all pieces to be cut from the same fabric layer on its own digital "layer". Optimize for appliqué by removing unneeded "nodes" ( "points") along each line segment.
- STEP 2:
Import the design into Ioline's 301 Software and select the number of copies you wish to cut. As you would on an office printer, set your margins.
- STEP 3:
Cut the design on the 350HF System cutter.
- STEP 4
(For heat-transfer, skip to Step 5):
Create outline stitch sew instructions with 301 Software. Choose placement, tack-down, zigzag, satin or bean outline stitches. Set stitch density, width and edge overlap. Import into your embroidery. Set any fill stitches.
- STEP 5:
Heat-press your transfer designs onto a garment or finished good—or sew placement stitches using the instructions created by 301 Software, then position your appliqué graphic and stitch it in place with the decorative stitches specified on the sew disk.
- STEP 1:
- [+] Improve customer service
- Greater choice
- More interesting designs
- Easy customization
- Cost-effective samples while customers wait
- No minimums
- Faster delivery
Encourage repeat business and turn your customers into evangelists. Word-of-mouth advertising is the best promotion you can get. With the Ioline 350HF System, you can offer:
- [+] Make more profit $$
- Reduce your per piece cost on pre-cut graphics. (For instance, tackle twill runs about 2 cents per square inch.) Compare costs »
- Save stitches, reduce trims and color changes.
- Increase output/hour and finish more jobs in a day.
- Eliminate the expense of sew disks.
- Reduce excess inventory. Don't be forced to buy packages of multiples. Cut only what you need.
- Spend less on materials and production time, charge more for finished goods. Customers are willing to pay a premium for appliqué.
Cut your costs and improve margins.
- [+] Double your output
- Replace stitches with fabric and finish more goods per hour.
- Use adhesive-backed materials to sandwich or "kiss-cut" multiple layers as one graphic, assuring accurate positioning and reducing the time required to heat press or sew down.
- Reduce trims and color changes by replacing thread colors with appliqué.
Appliqué can reduce production time by as much as two-fold or more.
- [+] Includes digitizing software
- Move, convert jump to trim, add or delete lock stitches.
- Specify placement, tack-down, zigzag or satin outline stitches.
- Set stitch density, width and edge overlap.
- Specify top or bottom start point.
The 350HF System comes with a free, easy-to-use digitizing program. Use 301 Software to import and cut designs, edit stitches and create sew disks. Stitch editing capabilities include:
- [+] Design software compatibility
- Adobe Illustrator®
- [+] Hardware
- Requirements: A Windows-based PC running Windows® 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7 and 8.
- Connectivity: Plugs into a PC just like an office printer-via serial or USB port.
- [+] Installation requirements
- Footprint: 24 in deep x 36 in wide (61 cm x 92 cm). Requires 9 inches of clearance in front and back of machine for unobstructed tray movement.
- Architectural considerations: None. Power requirements are lower than that for a PC. Unlike die cutters and laser cutters, there's no need to modify your building nor install ventilation to meet safety regulations. Installation is as easy as hooking up a new printer.
The compact 350HF System fits easily into studio spaces.
- [+] Consummables
- Sticky sheets: Adhesive sheets hold material in place for cutting. Lint build up can be washed off warm water to extend sheet life.
- Blades: Durable, carbon-tip blades assure clean cuts and smooth curves. Blade depth adjusts to handle materials of varying thicknesses.
- [+] Maintenance
- NO Lubrication: No oiling or grease required. Simply wipe dust and lint off the machine periodically.
- NO Spray adhesives: Never spray adhesives near the 350HF System, as the aerosol can drift inside the system and cause damage.
- Blades: Use a can of compressed air to remove lint build-up around the blade.
- Sticky sheets: Use soap and water to periodically clean off lint. Once one side of the sheet looses its tackiness, flip it over to use the opposite side. Felt and other loose-fiber materials impact sheet life more than twill and other tightly woven fabrics.
There's relatively little to maintain on the 350HF System.
