The Tangential Knife is a robust knife cutting tool intended for heavier, thicker and harder materials than a traditional drag knife can accommodate. A Tangential knife is a cutting blade that follows the plot lines of a shape by incrementally rotating the blade to match the path. This method provides for straight cut corners at any angle as well as true radii when called for. A range of optional interchangeable blade holders are available for the Tangential Knife which enable it to be used for cutting rubber, composites, duct liner and a wide selection of soft and semi rigid materials.
Combine the Tangential Knife on a multi-head machine with a high speed routing spindle and the AXYZ AVS vision registration system to create a complete digital print finishing solution.
