ATOM Dieless Knife Cutting Tables
FlashCut FLEX ‘S’ Series

The ATOM Dieless Knife Cutting Table, FlashCut FLEX S Series, is equipped with a static working surface and represents the optimal dieless cutting solution for all the traditional gasket materials including; steel inserted graphite, non-asbestos up to 6mm, rubber & it’s by-products, dense foams, glass filled teflons, pure Teflon, mylar, nomex, felts, fabrics, plastics and similar semi-rigid materials.  Robustness of structure, reliability and precision are the main features of the S line allowing the system to operate 3 shifts per day cutting the most difficult materials.

ATOM FlashCut ‘S’ Line Revolutionizes the Gasket Cutting Industry

  • Increases Yields
    • Better yield increases profit and reduces waste
    • Automatic nesting through integrated software – nest shapes within shapes
    • Centers, remnants and wads do not need to be stored
    • Material does not have to be blocked or stripped
    • Parts can be placed closer together due to no ejection in cutting die or gang die
  • Eliminates Cutting Dies
    • No waiting for dies to be built
    • No dies needed for new business
    • No dies needed for design change or samples
    • No dies to be stored or repaired
  • Decreases Labor Costs
    • Eliminate hand cutting – creates simple flanges @ user interface
    • Eliminate additional steps such as blocking or stripping material
    • When cutting full sheets, the operator is free to do other tasks
    • Machine can run unattended
    • One operator can run multiple machines at one time
  • More Versatile than Other Cutting Methods
    • Unlike traditional die cutting, a knife cutting table does not require cutting dies – zero concavity
    • Unlike water jet cutting, knife cut parts do not get wet & the cut quality is better on most materials
    • Unlike laser cutting, a knife table requires no gases and does not produce odor or toxic fumes

The multi-tool cutting head increases the overall versatility of the ATOM FlashCut and is one of the key factor of its success – the ability to total cut, score cut (partial depth cut) & kiss cut with one knife chuck, two drilling stations utilizing rotating punches for precise small diameter holes, a marking pen to apply part #’s and trademarks and a 3rd non-rotating punch station that can be used on light-weight materials.  In addition, the powerful 11kW vacuum pump coupled with 50 (3015 S Model) independent inverter controlled vacuum sectors increase the material “hold down” preventing material movement and eliminating the sacrificial sealing of the material (or open area) commonly seen on most knife cutting tables.  Available options include an overhead projection system to better utilize remnants and piece code identification and the lubrication device to additionally aid in the cutting of heavy sheet rubber up to 1” in thickness.
