Atemag expands CNC machining possibilities

CNC machines are indispensable for various woodworking tasks such as milling, drilling and sawing. The Soft Cutter-Pro function line cutting aggregate expands the CNC processing options to include the precise cutting of soft materials and realises straight and radial cuts of flexible material panels with thicknesses of up to 150 mm.

By using this device from German company, Atemag Aggregatetechnologie und Manufaktur AG, companies can dispense with the costs of external service providers or additional cutting systems.

In addition, the cutting work is more precise than with manual execution and the range of materials that can be processed with a single CNC machine is increased.

The rotary motion on the drive is converted into precise oscillating (up and down movements_ of the tool with an amplitude of 2 mm. The drive, with a speed of 6,000 revolutions per minute, results in a cutting frequency of 150 Hz, so that the cuts are carried out with high efficiency and accuracy.

The integrated hold-down device fixes the material to be cut in an exact processing position.

With an overall height of approximately 200 mm, the compact cutting aggregate integrates seamlessly into existing CNC machines and can be stored in the tool changer.

With the ability to accommodate blade lengths of up to 150 mm (in a Weldon holder for blades with a shaft diameter of 6 mm), it offers a high degree of flexibility for cutting operations involving different material thicknesses.

The CNC cutting aggregate is convincing in various industries. In the packaging industry, it enables the precise cutting of cardboard and foam materials, while in the furniture industry, for example, it is used to cut felt.

It enables the cutting of honeycomb core materials for doors, exhibition stand construction and caravan construction. Cutting polyester, foam or other sound-absorbing materials optimises the processing of acoustic elements.

In industries such as aviation, boat building and aerospace, the unit sets new standards with the precise cutting of honeycomb cores for particularly demanding applications.

As the knife of the cutting aggregate is always positioned and moved with the cutting edge, Atemag recommends using it on CNC machines with at least 4 axes. In 5-axes machines or robots, the CNC can also carry out angular cutting operations.
