Cutting table manufacturer S.M.R.E. SpA (Umbertide, Italy) is featuring the SM-381-TA, a high-performance table with a reduced footprint and an entry level price. It can cut carbon fiber, glass fiber or Kevlar, dry or prepreg, in either unidirectional or multiaxial formats. The SM-381-TA is equipped with brushless servomotors and a belt transmission system that reportedly helps the system maintain precision in axis movements. The worktop is made from solid milled aluminum plates; the grooves of the worktop, traced with a specific design, together with a 5.5-kW vacuum and a four-sector partitioning system, help keep material gripped to the surface. The system is available with a static worktop or sacrificial carpet, as well as a robust conveyor belt that allows the automatic unloading of material after it’s been processed. Other options include oscillating blade, drag knife, rotary blade, socket for pen marker and laser pointer for dynamic zero point. Booth C2.
