Comments Off on 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.
From 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.
A multi-tool cutting head on the Flashcut is able to total cut, score cut, and kiss cut with a single knife chuck, and rotating punches that can handle small diameter holes
“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.
