DUAL AXIS CUTTING AND MARKING TABLE
QUALITY CUTS ON SPECIALTY
Originally designed to cut specialty fabrics typically used in the awning and sun protection industry, it’s solid industrial structure, brushless motors, and quality cutting tools make this machine an ideal solution for manufacturers in many other industries as well.
SM-400-TA installs a wide range of industrial cutting tools for the creation of top quality fabric panels. A selection of accessories make this machine the complete solution for your panel cutting requirements.
To solve the problem of shrinking crystal (clear) PVC we 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 terace covers without the danger of shrinkage, even when exposed to sunlight or cold.
First introduced in 1999, many innovative solutions were integrated into this machine to ensure absolute 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, SM-400-TA is the solution for you.
PRODUCTS AND APPLICATIONS
Initially designed for the production of awnings in acrylic and polyester, SM-400-TA is widely used to cut panels of other technical fabrics, such as heavy PVC for the production of large covers or industrial speed doors, Kevlar for the production of armored vehicles and clothing, or fire retardant textiles for the production of curtains.

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.
SM-400-TA is used by a multitude of market leaders in the sun protection industry and guarantees clean, seared cuts of acrylic and polyester fabrics. Tools, accessories and software were designed to deliver an unparalleled operational efficiency and guarantee a quick return on your investment.
To make SM-400-TA even more efficient our team installed brushless motors on the grip-and-pull system so that the return movement after the cut is ultrafast – up to 40 m/minute – and the non-productive time of the machine is reduced to a few seconds. A brushless motor on the tool bridge enabled the ultrasonic cutter to move towards its programmed cutting position with a speed of up to 30 m/minute.
Its solid structure makes SM-400-TA suitable for heavy duty cutting work. Top of the bill electronic and pneumatic components and cleverly designed industrial tools and accessories make this machine the best available on the market to create quality panels of specialty fabrics and industrial textiles. The standard usable cutting length is 6,0 m. Extension modules of 2,0 m each make the usable cutting length as long as required. The version of SM-400-TA to stabilize crystal PVC has usable dimensions of 1,65 m by 4,0 m.
SM-400-TA installs a selection of industrial cutting tools for the creation of top quality fabric panels. A wide range of accessories – such as a LED illumination system to detect flaws in the fabric, an automatic under table fabric roll warehouse, a motorized unwinding system with electronic edge control, and a motorized rewinder to roll up the created panels – make this machine a complete solution for your panel cutting requirements.
SM-400-TA installs a variety of industrial cutting tools and accessories, individually or simultaneously, in a wide range of combinations, providing an enormous versatility of applications while optimizing the production cycle. SM-400-TA truly is the complete solution for your panel cutting requirements.
Preset awning patterns and production parameters on the touch screen control panel make the setup of the machine easy and intuitive. To reduce the intervention of an operator and thus the possibility of human error a bar code reading program is available. With a simple “beep” of the reading gun the machine will set all working parameters itself, then start the production cycle.
SM-400-TA works in full automatic cycles. A computer controlled grip-and-pull system pulls the fabric off of the roll and to the programmed length. During the pull one or more ultrasonic cutting heads slice the fabric in the length. As soon as the programmed length is reached the panel is cross cut off of the roll by the motorized rotary knife and placed on the table top. The grip-and-pull then quickly moves forward to pull and cut the next panel.
Operating costs are extremely limited. Maintenance costs are negligible. The machine has a simple, but very solid structure. When used correctly SM-400-TA will go on forever.
