Whether the job requires cutting sheets or rigid materials, the Sharpcut always delivers clean, smooth and accurate edge quality. The gantry’s X/Y axis movement is driven by a rack and pinion system which increases the longevity and endurance of the cutter when comparing it to a belt driven system. The rack and pinion system is powered by servo motors and requires minimum maintenance driving downs costs of owning the Sharpcut. The Z-axis is a ball screw driven mechanism also powered by a Panasonic Servo motor that guarantees high performance, accuracy and reliability.

The Triple Interchangeable Tool Head station allows the operator the capability of changing application tools within the same job without manual intervention. Three tools are always loaded in the cutter allowing it to select the appropriate tool required for the job.
