Whether you cut very large panels, squares and rectangles, curves or complex and even highly complex shapes, whichever finished product in specialty fabrics you manufacture, the SMRE cutting systems, with their multiple technologies and cleverly designed tools and accessories, allow you to create an infinite range of patterns on a wide variety of technical fabrics, industrial textiles and rigid or semi-rigid materials.
Flatbed plotters with static worktop, robust industrial cutting stations with multiple layer conveyor belt, or simple X-Y cutting tables to create panels... CO₂ laser system, ultrasonic blade, oscillating blade, drag knife, rotary blade, milling head, or the powerful waterjet technology… Ask our experts to assist you in choosing the right machine model and cutting technology for your application.
To streamline your production and increase your productivity, our software developers created a series of easy-to-use programs that will transform your cutting machine into a highly efficient manufacturing solution. And if you have specific requirements, we create custom macros to make production and order handling so simple that even unskilled staff can do it.
Allows for high cutting speeds on a wide range of fabrics and materials. Relatively inexpensive to purchase and maintain. Extension range of the blade and cutting pressure can be adjusted according to thickness and characteristics of the cut material. Delivers high precision work. Suitable for straight cuts, curves, very complex shapes and holes with very small diameters.Machines
Based on moving mirror technology similar to what is used to create laser light shows. The mirrors make minuscule adjustments in reflection angles and move the stationary laser beam in different directions within a specific cutting or marking area (generally 200 x 200 mm). The most important advantage is the speed, up to 10 times the speed of a gantry based laser system.Machines
The advantages offered by CO₂ laser technology include the fact that the processed materials are not physically touched during the cutting cycle, allowing even breathing materials to be cut with high speed and extreme precision. The heat generated by the laser beam sears the fabric, thus preventing it from fraying – another significant advantage of this technology. Laser is suitable for an infinite variety of patterns on a wide range of fabrics and materials: from straight lines to curves, from extremely complex patterns to holes with an extremely small diameter (0,5 mm).Machines
A powerful electrically driven cutting tool able to create complex patterns in materials difficult to process with a drag knife. The high oscillating frequency allows high speed cutting of heavily coated fabrics, composites, cardboard, leathers and synthetic leathers, rubber of medium thickness, and foams, even rigid and semi-rigid materials used in digital printing such as KAPA-mount panels.Machines
A non-motorized, freely moving blade that allows for very high cutting speeds. Available in various diameters according to your production requirements. Extension of the blade and cutting pressure are adjusted according to the thickness of the cut material. Highly efficient, cost-effective tool for single-ply cutting of specialty fabrics and composites such as carbon and glass fiber.Machines
The SMRE routers are high performance precision tools ready to take on even the toughest jobs. Versatility, speed, and an excellent production output are the main features. Equipped with an 800 W or 2,2 kW spindle our routers tools are well suited for processing composite panels, wood, aluminum, Forex, Dibond, Plexiglas and KAPA-mount, and other rigid materials typically used in the signage and advertising or display industry.Machines
Typically used on dual axis cutting machines for cuts in X and Y direction, the ultrasonic cutting head sears the fabric during the cut and prevents the edges from fraying. Ultrasonic cutting technology ensures particularly clean cuts on fabrics such as acrylic, polyester and Screen (PVC coated fiber glass). Because of the pressure it exerts on the fabric, when installed on a CAD/CAM plotter the ultrasonic tool is most effective in combination with an additional pressing bar to secure the fabric to the work top.Machines
Makes angular cuts in twin-wall sheets of cardboard, foam core or sandwich board materials of various thicknesses and prepares the board to be folded into a complex structural design. The blade slides into the cardboard and moves along the machine’s X and Y axes to make a clean incision, enabling the operator to easily fold the board into objects such as boxes, displays or advertisement gadgets.Machines
Waterjet is a technically simple, low cost cutting technology that ensures fast, precise and clean cuts, even on thick sheets or multi-layer materials. With its diameter of a fraction of a millimeter the waterjet beam makes extremely precise cuts on materials that are difficult to process with conventional cutting tools. Where a laser will burn through the material and cause a heat affected zone, a waterjet does not burn or otherwise alter the physical characteristics of the material and leaves the cutting edges clean and smooth.Machines
