Main features

Specifically developed to cut flexible PVC

Unlike other machines available on the market, designed for cutting jobs in other industries, SM-330-TA was specifically developed to process heavy rolls of PVC. All its features – tools, accessories and software solutions – are built just for that: to cut and mark PVC with speed and great precision.

Multiple knives for heavy duty cutting

SM-330-TA simultaneously installs up to three cutting tools: a drag knife for high precision cuts of complex patterns, and two rotary blades for very fast cuts of straight lines, curves and circles. The Easy Works Xtreme software manages which tool cuts which pattern, sets the key cutting parameters for each tool and calculates the most efficient cutting sequence to reduce cycle time to an absolute minimum.

High speed, superfast acceleration

SM-330-TA is driven by powerful brushless servomotors and integrated electronics on the X, Y, Z and W axes. Designed for high speed cutting the machine reaches top speeds of 80 meters/minute with an acceleration up to 1G (10 m/s²).

Solid industrial structure

Specifically designed for heavy duty cutting jobs, its solid industrial structure makes SM-330-TA suitable for the most challenging cutting work. The sturdy, multiple layer conveyor belt allows cutting of patterns of infinite length on heavy industrial fabrics. Its cleverly designed tools and accessories complete the machine and make it a highly efficient industrial cutting solution.

Automatic setting of parameters
Based on the characteristics of the material that is processed, the operator chooses the menu from the tool database, and SM-330-TA will automatically set key cutting parameters such as speed and acceleration.

Exceptional productivity

With its high speed and automatic pull-and-cut cycles, the machine ensures an enormous production output.

Continuous cutting cycles

SM-330-TA works in full automatic, continues cycles. A computerized unwinder with edge control and a digitally controlled dancer system for automatic tension management feeds the fabric into the machine. SM-330-TA then cuts the programmed patterns and makes the next pull, until the programmed sequenced is done.

Creation of very large shapes in a limited space

With its continuous pull-and-cut operation the industrial conveyor belt allows for the creation of very large shapes in a very limited space. If the cut patterns are wider than the roll, the Split Box software module divides the patterns into smaller pieces that can be processed on the machine. With Split Box, stadium covers, tarpaulins, swimming pool covers, tension structures and industrial doors can be created on a machine with a cutting frame that is infinitely smaller than the finished product.

Vacuum power for total fabric control

Two powerful vacuum turbines and the tough but breathing conveyor belt surface ensure optimal vacuum grip on the processed material. The worktop is sectioned in two zones enabling the machine to concentrate the full vacuum power in the area where the processed material is placed, a feature that is very effective when smaller rolls are cut.

A choice of precision tools

A variety of precision tools and accessories were specifically designed to deliver quality cuts and extreme precision. With their clever industrial design, tools can be installed individually or simultaneously, in any combination, providing an enormous variety of cuts on a wide range of fabrics.

Easy Works Xtreme CAD/CAM

Calculates the most efficient way of cutting one pattern after the next. Easy Works saves the optimal settings for every cutting job, including the most suitable tool, the optimal acceleration and the maximum speed, a feature that makes it very easy to repeat a job without having to reprogram the machine. The operator simply chooses the memorized settings from the menu and the machine will set the parameters automatically.

Automatic nesting

When more than one complex pattern needs to be cut the nesting module automatically calculates the most efficient way to fit the shapes on the cutting frame and cut as many pieces as possible out of the available material. The nesting program fits the patterns like a puzzle and reduces discards to an absolute minimum. Nesting optimizes the production cycle in terms of speed and use of material and quickly and automatically carries out a highly complex calculation that would take an expert programmer a very long time.

Split Box

Designed to manage the creation of patterns that are larger than the cutting frame or wider than the roll. Automatically calculates the overlaps needed for the bonding of the fabric in a subsequent step in the production cycle. Integrates lateral hem or pockets, eyelets or reference marks. Makes calculations that would otherwise take a great deal of time and require the intervention of an expert designer. Very large products such as stadium covers and tension structures can be created on a machine with a cutting frame that is infinitely smaller.


The macro software packages enable the operator to program highly complex cutting jobs by entering a limited number of key parameters. By inserting a value for each parameter the machine translates the information into a cutting file and start the job with a simple push of the button. Macros greatly simplify the production cycle and save a lot of time, allowing unskilled operators to work with a technologically highly advanced machines. Macro packages are often custom made according to your production requirements.
