Manufacturers Supplies Company also would like to announce their NEW ATOM Flashcut B (Belt Feed) Series offers maximum production through-put of cut parts without the need to stop & restart the machine. The material is fed onto the bed of the machine into the "cutting zone". Once the components are cut, the conveyorised-bed feeds the parts to a "take-off" table area located at the front of the machine. The operator can strip the cut parts while the machine automatically reloads the material and the cutting process continues. The Flashcut B can produce belts much longer than the machine working length simply by indexing the cutting table and joining the cutting path (positioning tolerance of +/- 0.1mm).
