The ATOM CNC Digital Knife Cutting Systems, FlashCut FLEX Series, is a complete line of oscillating knife cutting tables available in several configurations with either a static or conveyorized (belt feed) cutting surface, one or two cutting heads, capable of processing materials up to 130mm in thickness. The FlashCut is a result of 65+ years’ experience in the industrial fields, experience collected by following our customers and paying detailed attention to their feedback and actual cutting needs. The focus of our organization has been to offer our clients accelerated development of new technologies, identifying and solving modern manufacturing problems so that we can improve your current manufacturing process.
ATOM’s automated cutting systems cut with extreme precision and repeatability, to within +/- 0.1mm on most materials. We offer advanced nesting software packages that maximize yields and significantly reduce expensive material waste. Engineered and designed to cut the hardest materials used in the petro-chemical, automotive, aerospace, composites & technical textiles, & packaging industries like compressed non asbestos, 1-2 layer steel inserted graphite, dense rubber, cross linked polyethylene foam, Kevlar, carbon fiber, plastics, and many more. Since ATOM develops its technology in close collaboration with its clients, today it is able to offer the most advanced and most applicable cutting solution on the market – the new FlashCut ‘FLEX’.
The new “FLEX” series represents the evolution of the previous architecture of great success with over 2500 units installed worldwide since 2002. The new structure boasts several improvements in technology (cutting head, tooling options, electronics) and software (interface program, CAD compatibility & options) together with the new compact design make them extremely flexible for a wide range of industrial applications. The solid steel rack and pinion system in place of a cogged belt increase the precision and operating speeds of the machine while the two pre-charged linear guide rails and enlarged beam adds to the robustness of the system. The new cutting surface with a higher degree of planarity coupled with the unique partitioned zoned vacuum system add even more suction power improving cut quality and overall accuracy. With the option to add an overhead camera system for material contour recognition, projectors to visualize the cutting layout for assisted parts collection, the modular multi-tool cutting head and the powerful yet simple to use production control software make the FlashCut “FLEX” an efficient, versatile and powerful CNC digital knife cutting system.
A Wide Range of Models and Configurations
FLEX S Series
Ideal for cutting semi-rigid and rigid materials in sheets, the FLEX Static Bed Series can cut materials up to 1” in thickness, even the hardest ones, thanks to a robust, precise and state-of-the-art mechanics and electronics.
FLEX B Series
Ideal for cutting materials in rolls, the FLEX Belt Series share the same features as the S series with regards to material capabilities, but allow for the continuous cutting of roll good materials for higher production throughput.
FLEX 2H Series
The 2H Series are equipped with two independent cutting heads for increased productivity. The 2H series can be equipped with a static bed or belt fed cutting surface.
FLEX HD Series
The HD series are expressly designed to cut foam, corrugated or honeycomb cardboard; they are able to cut materials up to 130m in thickness and combine cutting, creasing and 45° angle cutting and are available as a static bed or equipped with a transport cutting belt.
FLEX EMHD Series
The EMHD models are designed to combine cutting and milling operations on materials up to 110mm in thickness. The powerful knife chuck and 3kW electric router allow to process a wide range of materials like foam, rubber, plastics and composites.
