POLYCARBONATE CUTTING MACHINES

Machine Capabilities

The Polycut is a CNC Machine designed specifically for cut-to-size Multiwall Polycarbonate Sheet such as Lexan Thermoclear, Sunlite, Macrolux, Makrolon Multi, Correx and any other brand. ​

Benefits

  • The machine is not a wall saw. It uses a blade rather than a rotating saw to cut the Multiwall Polycarbonate. This means that no dust or swarf is created, eliminating the need to blow out the dust from the flutes
  • High speed cutting combined with the elimination of cleaning means that you can cut more sheets per day than using conventional saws.
  • Two modes of operation:
    • Quick horizontal and vertical cutting of the stock sheets, controlled from the machine
    • Optimisation of jobs to be cut can be done in advance, minimising wastage
  • Reliable, efficient and very cost effective
  • Cuts any multiwall polycarbonate sheet size up to 2.1m x 7m
  • Cuts multiwall polycarbonate sheets between 4mm and 40mm thick
  • Fully CNC controlled – No more measuring mistakes by operator
  • Vertically mounted bed ensure minimum factory floor space is needed

Features

  • Solid, one piece welded frame ensures accurate positioning and cutting
  • Zoned Vacuum System on bed ensuring maximum suction on sheets
  • Positioning Accuracy of +/- 0.05%
  • Siemens Control system via a Touch Screen, which can be connected to your network
  • Specially designed knife for long life and quick changing knife holder
  • Bespoke optimisation software to minimise waste
  • Laser scanner zone for safety protection
  • Onboard diagnostics and remote access for training and support available
  • Can be installed and commissioned in 1 day

Knife cutting depth Up to 35mm Up to 70mm
Multi-sheet or single sheet cutting? Single Single or Multiple
Complex shape cutting? Yes Yes

Savings you can achieve

Competitively priced against other similar machines

Reduced factory costs due to significantly smaller footprint than a flatbed cutter

Substantial reduction in scrap materials from use of optimisation software

Massive labour savings when compared with traditional ‘by-hand’ or wall saw cutting
A 2.1m x 7m sheet takes approximately 3 minutes to cut and requires no cleaning

How To Purchase

The Polycut is made to order and is available on an 10-12 week lead time.

It is available for export from the UK to any destination worldwide and is supplied on an ex works basis.
