SHIMA SEIKI’s new P-CAM100C, P-CAM120C, P-CAM160C, and P-CAM180C NC cutting machine (computerized cutting machine) are ideal for cutting sheets of Carbon- and Glass-Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP and GFRP) pre-impregnated composites (prepregs). In addition to conventional drag knife and reciprocating knife, ultrasonic knife can also be selected, allowing cutting of a wide range of materials such as rubber, leather, vinyl, thermoplastics, adhesive materials and water-repellent fabrics up to 20mm in thickness and in multi-ply applications. Cutting depth and height are automatically adjusted to aid in longevity of the blade. Furthermore various measures are taken in consideration of the type of materials to be cut on this machine, such as dust prevention, auto knife cleaning and cutting mat laydown. Double-cut prevention function and special cutting brushes are standard. Cutting length begins at a compact 880mm, while the cutting area can be customized for long items. By using the optional barcode scanner, operation accuracy and efficiency is increased significantly by preventing mistakes upon pattern data input. Machine installation can be performed in one-piece or in separate sections for smaller spaces. Together with SHIMA SEIKI’s SDS-ONE APEX3 CAD system, P-CAM100C, P-CAM120C, P-CAM160C, and P-CAM180C provide smooth and efficient computer-to-cutting for a variety of industries from automotive and aerospace to industrial materials.
