INDUSTRIAL TOOLS AND ACCESSORIES

SMRE offers a wide selection of industrial tools: they can be installed individually or simultaneously, in a variety of combinations, providing an enormous versatility of applications.

Main features

Entry level price

SM-380-TA was designed to offer start-ups, relatively small companies, and large enterprises to invest in an all-round cutting solution that offers the same excellent performance and installs the same high quality industrial tools and accessories as much more expensive machines.

Compact design, reduced footprint

SM-380-TA has a very compact design and is the ideal solution for small production runs or the creation of prototypes or samples. Its reduced footprint allows SM-380-TA to be placed in a corner of your workshop.

Highly customizable

Multiple technologies and accessories can be simultaneously installed to allow operators from a wide range of industries to create highly professional products. Whichever materials you process, and whichever patterns or shapes you cut, SM-380-TA can be equipped with just the right tools for your production requirements and deliver the quality and efficiency you desire.

Multiple technologies

Laser technology to cut Plexiglas, cardboard or leather? A drag knife for highly complex patterns? Rotary blades for high speed cutting of heavy and thin PVC? A creasing head to fold cardboard panels? A V-blade to create complex structural designs? A powerful industrial router for 3D products or an oscillating blade to cut composites? SM-380-TA can do it all. Multiple technologies can be installed simultaneously, in any combination, allowing to process an infinite range of materials.

A wide choice of precision tools and accessories

A range of accessories – such as the scanning camera that photographs the cutting patterns and transforms the shapes into CAD/CAM files, a camera that projects the patterns on the processed material, and a camera and software to recognize reference marks and automatically correct the position of the pattern on the work top – make this machine a very complete manufacturing solution.

Heavy duty structure

Its solid steel and aluminum structure makes SM-380-TA suitable for the most challenging heavy duty cutting work. Very compact, the machine can easily be installed in a corner of your work shop. Top of the bill electronic and pneumatic components and heavy duty parts complete this indestructible work horse.

Recirculating ball screw transmission

Motion is generated by a highly efficient recirculating ball screw mechanism with 5 powerful servo motors with integrated electronics on the X, Y, Z and W axes. Whether the goal is to obtain extreme precision of the cut or reduce costs, ball screws are often the best option for linear actuation. Ball screw transmission guarantees a relatively silent operation. In combination with the other top of the bill parts and components this robust industrial technology ensures extended lifetime of the machine, making it a truly durable investment.

Solid work top

The working surface of SM-380-TA is a solid aluminum plate with a specific pattern of machined grooves to optimize the passage of the air, and a breathing carpet that that ensures a firm grip of the vacuum turbine on the material.

Vacuum power for total material control

A powerful 7,5 kW turbine and special grooves machined in the worktop ensure optimal vacuum grip on the processed material. The sectioning of the work top in multiple zones enables the machine to concentrate the full vacuum power in those areas where the processed materials are placed. This option is particularly important when the pieces of material are much smaller than the cutting frame and ensures great precision during the cut.

SOFTWARE SOLUTIONS

Easy Works Xtreme CAD/CAM

Easy Works Xtreme 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.

Macros

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.

Tracking Power Control (TPC)

Automatically synchronizes the laser power with the moving speed of the cutting head and ensures very high cutting quality even when complex patterns are cut on very difficult materials such as paper, cardboard, leather, or light colored specialty fabrics.

Kasemake

Kasemake is a formidable 2D structural design and 3D visualizing software used by thousands of operators in a wide range of industries. Whether you are an advertising agency, a visual merchandiser, a point of sale designer, a sign maker, or a printer, Kasemake will help you improve efficiency and productivity, and open up new opportunities and markets for you. With the Kasemake software you can create a custom size 2D structural design in seconds, ready to export (typically in DXF or EPS format) to your SM-380-TA cutting machine. By simply picking the appropriate display or box style from the extensive libraries of built-in designs, and feeding in the basic sizes and materials, the software creates a flat 2D design. Kasemake will make a highly specialized design job simple and efficient. With Kasemake, everyone is a 3D designer.

Raster imaging

Enables SM-365-TA to create complex images on materials such as wood and Plexiglas using the standard CO₂ laser cutting tool. By constantly increasing and reducing the laser power while the tool moves over the material the beam will burn with different intensities and create images through a dark/light shade effect.
