Also known as dieless cutting or flash cutting, CNC knife cutting is considered a dieless cutting operation because of the absence of traditional steel ruled dies. The process converts G-code from a Digital eXchange Format (.dxf) file to determine a path for the 3-axis tool head to follow. The CNC knife cutter performs a continuous manufacturing operation until the cut command has been completed The knife-cutting tables have a bed size of 60” x 120”, maximum Z-travel distance of 55mm or 2.05”, servo motors and multi-tool options capable of processing a wide variety of flexible and rigid materials, up to 2.00”
