Machine Frame and Drive System

  • The machine frame is made of a very rigid, solid steel weldment
  • The upper knives are reversible for use of both sides, and the lower knives feature 4 cutting edges
  • A rigid, continuous hold-down fixes the sheet metal plate right in front of the cut line
  • The optimum kerf for machining can be adjusted manually

Material Support

  • The rigid side angle stop simplifies alignment of the plate to the cut line
  • Rugged support arms ensure a strong hold of large plates
  • Material support rollers are recessed in the table for easy workpiece handling

Ergonomic Design

  • The mobile foot switch gives the operator added flexibility and both hands are free for handling the workpiece
  • For a better view of the cut line, the hand safety guard can be flipped up or down
  • The bright LED illumination of the cut line creates a clearly visible shadow on the marked line

Rear stop:

  • The motorized back gauge ensures precise positioning in automatic, semi-automatic and manual modes
  • The NC-controlled back gauge can be easily and quickly programmed
