Cutting and Marking
Commonly regarded as the most important manufacturing process, cutting and/or marking is where the product gets its desired dimensions. ASCO cutting and marking equipment ensures these processes are achieved at any level of quality and automation desired by the customer.
Depending on the type of fabric and application it is used for, ASCO has several standard cutting techniques available:
- Rotating knife; a low-cost cutting solution suitable for most materials
- Ultrasonic cutting; for a sealed edge without fraying
- Crush cutting system; primarily for cutting glass-fiber based materials, but widely applicable
In addition, ASCO can integrate other, less standard cutting solutions, such as heated knife cutting, razor blade cutting, laser cutting and scissor cutting. At ASCO we also testing facilities to do cutting tests and give you the best advice on how to cut your materials.
MX Cutting Tables
The MX cutting table offers a higher degree of automation when compared to the standard ST cutting tables. The operator can rotate panels on one part of the table, while the cutting axis is cutting the panels on a different part of the table, increasing efficiency.
MT Cutting Tables
The MT cutting table is our entry level cutting table, providing the minimum requirements for square cutting of panels. Available in any size.
DX Cutting Tables
The advantage of cutting fabrics tension free, without the need to manually rotate the panels to cut them square. DX cutting tables use two independent cutting axes to cut nested rectangular shapes without moving the fabric, ensuring speed and accuracy.
CT Cutting Tables
The CT cutting table offers increased productivity and accuracy when compared to the MT cutting table. It is more versatile and offers push button operation. CT cutting tables are available in three width sizes.
ASCO marking and creasing tables are used for createing pattenrs to be used later in the assembly process.
PX Cutting Tables
PX cutting tables are used for cutting large numbers of panels of the same size. They are made to customers' requirements, and can be fitted with multiple options such as the ability to create stacks of panels, etc.
FX Cutting Tables
These cutting tables feature high-end guides and a servo drive to increase production even further.
