The ATOM FlashCut High Production Knife Cutting Systems, Speedy Series, is a new dieless cutting technology combining flexibility and output. ATOM knife cutting tables have a reputation as one of the fastest machines on today’s market. However, we realize the market is always looking for a more versatile & productive system. Therefore, we designed a cutting system with two independent multi-tool cutting heads with transport cutting belt or the combination of a transport cutting belt with “pinch-grab” material feeding pincers.
ATOM’s long and successful experience achieved with their CNC traveling head presses has been transferred to the design of this new system. Considerable advantages derive from this way of material handling which offers the flexibility of feeding material in roll or sheet form, in single or multiple layers, elastic or rigid with a high degree of feeding accuracy (+/-0.1mm). There are three sizes available in the Speedy Series, model 1660 with a 1600mm wide work area, model 2160 with a 2100mm wide work area & the model 2660 with a 2600mm wide work area capable of processing a full leather hide.
ATOM offers a wide range of models & configurations in the SPEEDY series to satisfy any cutting needs and make them the perfect automated solution for footwear & leather goods, and synthetic materials in rolls or sheets both single & multi-layers.
SPEEDY B Series
The FlashCut Speedy B Series is equipped with a transport cutting belt for front or rear material feeding designed to cut leather hides and equipped with software for manual and/or automatic nesting.
SPEEDY BP Series
The FlashCut Speedy BP series is equipped with the international patented “pinch & grab” material feeding system, which guarantees the highest degree of feeding accuracy, and maximum material fixing during the cutting cycle. With the dedicated nesting software, the Speedy BP series are the optimal solution to cut synthetic materials in single or multiple layers.
VISION PLUS – Acquisition & Quality Area Detection Systems
ATOM’s Advanced Acquisition & Quality Area Detection Systems are surely key factors of the ATOM dieless cutting solution. Actually, it completes the cutting system, optimizing material yields and 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 digitizing & acquisition systems coupled with unique software packages each capable of nesting shapes for a variety of market sectors. VISIONPLUS automatically acquires the contour of the leather, regardless of the color, as well as the quality area of pre-marked hides with any light condition. The range includes IntelliView off-line solutions as well as IntelliScan integrated in-line systems.
IntelliView – Off-Line Acquisition Systems
The IntelliView models can automatically acquire the leather contour of any style or color. The lighting system and the exclusive FlashTracer optical pen allow a clear visualization of the surface and ease the quality area marking and display them both on the screen and directly on the hide, each one with a pertinent color. After scanning and nesting calculation, the IntelliView off-line acquisition systems print an indentification label with bar code to be applied to the leather. Intelliview range has both static and conveyorized off-line models available in various sizes coupled with optimized nesting software strategies.
IntelliScan – In-Line Acquisition Systems
The IntelliScan models can automatically acquire leather contour and quality areas of pre-marked hides with any light condition. Available as both an off-line version or a=integrated with various FlashCut knife cutting systems, they are widely used in the automotive and furniture industries. In addition to leather hides, the IntelliScan in-line system also scans logo typed (printed) materials. Together with the nesting algorithm, it automatically places the shapes to be cut, considering the position of the graphic or printed material.
