The ATOM FlashCut EASY 222 Knife Cutting Table is the ideal dieless cutting solution for any company that wants to produce samples, prototypes or small production batches rapidly with a high degree of accuracy. The ease of use, compact design (600mm x 1000mm Work Area) and the possibility to import shapes from any CAD system make the FlashCut EASY 222 particularly suitable for shoe and leather goods sample departments, manufacturers of electronic & silicone gaskets, technical textiles & composite materials and converters of adhesive tapes & double sided adhesives.
Solid, reliable, economic but without compromise, the FlashCut EASY 222 is the new standard for cutting operations. In the 1970’s, the “classic” G222 Clicker Press became a popular reference for die cutting machines used in shoe and leather goods factories throughout the world. Today, thanks to over 65 years of experience and more than 250,000 cutting systems sold worldwide, ATOM introduces the FlashCut 222 Knife Cutting Table; “Innovation in Tradition”.
In addition, the FlashCut EASY 222 can also be transformed into a narrow web dieless kiss cutting system for roll to roll converting applications. This new Narrow Web Converting Platform couples the ATOM FlashCut EASY 222 with Guidolin Girotto web handling equipment. The concept allows converters of double sided adhesives, foam tapes, laminated textiles and similar products the ability to kiss cut and or total cut in roll-roll form without the use of a cutting die. The web handling can include a single powered unwind, dual unwind with lamination capabilities, in-line slitting, part expulsion, scrap removal, liner change, transversal guillotine cutting, single or double outboard rewind etc..
Point of Strength
Flashcut Points of Strength
Robustness of Structure & High Planarity: The machine framework is extremely solid, indigent to an ATOM cutting system. The precision in the manufacturing of the cutting plane ensures a perfect parallelism between the material and the cutting head, granting a homogeneous cutting precision on the whole surface.
Smart Partitioned Zoned Vacuum System: The Flashcut cutting surface is divided into different sectors, each 12” x 12”, which can be independently activated. Concentrating the cutting power where needed allowing for increased cutting speeds without affecting the cut quality and precision.
Powerful & Versatile Cutting Head: The multi-tool cutting head consists of five stations. The main 40mm cutting tool station accepts a variety of knife chucks; fixed knife chuck, electric oscillating knife chuck, pneumatic knife chuck, pneumatic milling chuck or powered rotary cutter. Two auxiliary stations are included to accept punch holders / drills, creasing tools, kiss-cut chucks, & 45° angle knife chucks. A single plotting pen and pricker tool round out the group. With this versatile cutting head, the Flashcut now becomes a multi-functional production system.
Automatic & Interactive Nesting Software: Nesting software is surely a key factor of the ATOM dieless cutting solution. Actually, it completes the cutting system optimizing material yields & dramatically reducing the overall time for placing the shapes to be processed. Since this is a crucial feature to any dieless cutting system, ATOM developed a series of software packages each capable of nesting shapes for a variety of market sectors. The software used on all ATOM cutting systems is engineered by STRING, a software house partnered with ATOM for over 10 years.
Advanced yet Simple to Use Control Software: ATOM knife cutting tables are powered by advanced and reliable control software managing any operation using a simple menu designed to operate quickly and simplify operator training.
Two Independent Working Areas: While the machine is cutting on one ½ of the table, the operator can collect the cut pieces, prepare the next material and layout on the other ½ of the table for unbeatable performance and continuous production.
High Brightness Overhead Projection System: The overhead projectors allow for a clear visualization of parts and commands on all materials. This allows the cutting operation to be faster and more accurate. Gasket fabricators enjoy the flexibility of the projectors because now they can cut any remnant or scrap, no matter how irregular the shape, by manually placing parts within the area.
Advanced Safety Systems: All of the ATOM Flashcut dieless knife cutting tables and systems are equipped with state-of-the-art advanced safety systems which are in full compliance with European CE and OSHA Safety Standards.
