Dual axes cutting machine with stabilization of crystal PVC


Originally designed to cut specialty fabrics typically used to produce awnings, its solid industrial structure, high-speed brushless motors, quality cutting tools and specifically designed software programs make this machine the ideal cutting solution for manufacturers looking for a highly efficient way to create panels in PVC-coated textiles.

Introduced in 1999 a wide variety of innovative solutions were integrated into this machine that ensure absolute reliability and make the SM-400-TA the top-of-the-bill X-Y cutting machine it is today. If you’re looking for fast and very efficient production cycles and superior cuts made with an easy-to-use machine, the SM-400-TA is the solution for you.

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 industrial doors, 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.
