CGR’s Open House: Facility Tour, New Equipment and More

CGR Products will be hosting an open house at our Wisconsin facility — offering tours of our ISO 9001:2008-certified facility and showcasing our new high-quality equipment.

New Call-to-action

Meet the New Knife Cutting Machine at CGR: Flashcut Flex HD

Knife cutting is one of the fastest and most precise methods for producing parts.

Knife Cutting MachineFrom prototypes to final products, no matter the shape or size of a design, knife cutting technology offers flawless production for a wide range of materials.

We’re excited to feature brand new technology to the CGR Fleet from ATOM. “Cutting”-edge tooling, increased versatility, and unrivaled precision are just the beginning.

The Future of Knife Cutting: Flashcut Flex HD

The Flashcut FLEX HD S Series, part of ATOM’s family of Dieless Knife Cutting Tables, delivers the ideal cutting surface for CGR’s range of flexible materials. The table’s static working surface is supported by a powerful 11kW vacuum pump to hold material in place, eliminating potential errors from movement and the need for sacrificial sealing.

“Cutting” Costs, Increasing Yields

A robust structure, reliable performance, and high-level precision are bottom line in the Flashcut Flex’s operation. But that’s not all:

  • Automatic nesting with integrated software helps nest shapes within shapes, producing better yield and reducing waste and cost for everyone.
  • The reduction of dies and tooling offers a cost savings advantage.  Part concavity is virtually eliminated as well.
  • The Flashcut offers an advantage over waterjet cutting as the dieless knife process does not have any issues with water/moisture contamination.
  • Less hand cutting and fewer steps are needed for every part.
