Dual axes panel cutting machine with (optional) stabilization of crystal PVC


SM-400-TA was specifically designed to create quality awnings. First introduced in 1999, this machine was supplied to hundreds of leading manufacturers of sun protection systems worldwide and is a benchmark in the sun protection industry. Since its introduction a wide variety of innovative solutions were integrated to ensure absolute efficiency, reliability and cuts of the highest quality. If you’re looking for fast and efficient production cycles and high-quality cut panels made with an easy-to-use machine, look no further: the SM-400-TA is the best machine on the market.

With its brushless motors the SM-400-TA reaches a top moving speed of the grip-and-pull system of 60 m/m so that the return movement after the cut is ultrafast and the non-productive time of the machine is reduced to a few seconds. Its high-performance ultrasonic cutting tools guarantee clean, seared cuts of acrylic and polyester fabrics.

To solve the problem of shrinking crystal (clear) PVC SMRE developed a system for the just-in-time heat treatment with infrared light. After the treatment the crystal PVC will remain perfectly stable and can be integrated in products such as tents or terrace covers without the danger of shrinkage, even when exposed to sunlight, heat or cold. Whereas other heat-treatment systems cause the clear PVC to age, stiffen, and often give it a yellowish color, the treatment with the SMRE system will leave the crystal PVC perfectly transparent, clear, and flexible.
