Customer-specific Machine

for exact cutting of fibre glass and carbon foils for snowboard and ski manufacturing

Longitudinal cutting of films and foils presents particular demands with regard to the arrangement of the tool and the guiding of the material. Our designers have provided convincing solutions to these challenges, for example for films used in the manufacture of skis and snowboards.

To ensure the precise positioning of the feeding material, the sheets of glass fiber and carbon fiber are mounted on a driven material dereeler and fed to a dancer arm, which feedsthe material to the system exactly positioned and tension-free. 

After loading the production program, the machine works on its own and cuts the material to the desired length. When cutting the fibre glass and carbon foils, special attention was given to precision, since the thinner the material to be cut is, the more difficult it is to cut. In order to guarantee constant cutting quality, Metzner integrated a cutting module with precision guides. All parameters like cutting length, piece number, stack offset, material thickness, piece number per stack and production speed are freely programmable.

Finally, the machine stacks the cut material onto a dolly. The machine automatically recognizes the number of stacked foils and stops cutting at a pre-defined number until the material has been removed.
