This is a unique and highly configurable option which allows the AXYZ zoned vacuum system to operate in Live Deck, Pendulum Processing or independent switching modes of operation. Live Deck will automatically activate and deactivate zones according to the live position of the cutting head. This ensures the material is always held as securely as possible for best cutting results. Pendulum Processing mode allows the vacuum to switch between 2 virtual zones, usually the front and rear halves of the machine so that it can operate continuously for maximum production. For total manual control, individual zones can be switched through the zone manager.
