Blunham, Bedfordshire, United Kingdom, 2013/11/27 - Blackman and White, the UK’s only manufacturer of industrial flatbed cutters have just opened a new showroom at their Maldon headquarters to demonstrate the versatility of their latest machines - BlackmanandWhite.com.
Customers can now experience for themselves the ease of operation and high speed and accuracy which automated flatbed cutters can achieve together with the wide range of materials they can cope with.
Pride of the showroom is the innovative high speed Mastercut Versa-tech machine which incorporates a dual-active, multi-tool head. This allows a range of cutting tools to be used on a single machine including laser cutters and routers as well as crease, kiss cut, drag knife, oscillating and driven rotary knives.
The demonstration machine has a zoned vacuum bed to stabilise the materials while they are being cut and an integrated conveyor system which reduces the footprint of the machine and optimises the floor space required for cutting.
Alex White, managing director of Blackman and White commented,“Our machines are in such demand that as soon as they are manufactured, they are despatched immediately for installation. If a potential customer wants to see one of our cutting machines in action, we had to arrange for them to visit our customer’s premises, which isn’t always convenient. Now we have a fully functional demonstration machine in our dedicated showroom means that we can tailor the demonstration to suit each customer’s individual need. We can demonstrate the different tools that can be used, and show it’s speed functionality on a variety of materials
As well as standard materials such as paper, card, acrylics and light textiles, the Versa-tech is able to cut more challenging materials including composites, thin sheet metals such as aluminium, and wood up to one inch thick with an accuracy within 0.1mm.
White added “Purchasing an automated cutting machine such as the Mastercut, is an important investment decision for any customer, so we want them to be confident they are buying the best machine for their specific requirements. Having the showroom on site means busy customers can now visit at a time convenient to them, and see at first hand just how much we can help them improve speed and efficiency in their manufacturing process.”
