If required you can use your CNC machine as a plotter or CNC cutting machine for CNC cutting. In the various applications of a CNC machine, the choice of the tool depends on the material to be processed. To cut thin foils up to a thickness of about 0.5 mm, the use of a drag knife is perfectly adequate. CNC cutters are used to illustrate logos or lettering and cut then out of foil.
The tangential is particularly suitable for the precision machining of foil and flock material. Likewise, but also for paperboard, thin cork, various foams and various sealing materials, which are not particularly hard.
Because the blade is rotated by an actuator in the cutting direction, even the smallest contours and fonts can be cut precisely and quickly. The tangential knife comes into use with these materials:
- sheet material
- adhesive films
- Flock material
- Paper and cardboard
- Thin cork
The oscillating tangential cutting module / tangential knife EOT-2 is particularly suitable for precision cnc cutting thick materials. While a powerful oscillation motor moves the blade quickly up and down, an actuator rotates the knife in the cutting direction. So also solid and thick materials can be cut precisely and quickly, such as:
- Carbon fiber prepreg
- Corrugated board / hard cardboard
- Leather and cork
- Fabrics and films
- Rigid foam panels
