Machine Frame and Drive System

  • The machine frame is made of a robust steel weldment treated with stress-relief annealing
  • An automatic hold-down fixates the plate during cutting
  • The double-edged upper and lower knives can be rotated and reused

Material Support

  • The rigid side angle stop simplifies alignment of the plate to the cut line

Operation and Ergonomics

  • The PLC back-gauge control with 4.3" touchscreen features a user-friendly graphic interface for quick and easy programming
  • The mobile control unit features a foot switch, so the operator has both hands free

Back Gauge

  • The backgauge is driven by a servo motor, which significantly improves positioning and repeatability accuracy
  • A plate hold-up fixture prevents any overhang of the plate in front of the back gauge to ensure maximum accuracy and quality of every cut, even in thin plates
  • Support arms are positioned via an air cylinder and lowered in sync with the cutting process
