FlexCut is a system of arms, rollers, clamps and grippers.

SCM announced the availability of its FlexCut mobile gripper unit as an option for the company’s entire line of panel processing equipment.

The FlexCut is a system of arms, rollers, clamps and grippers that work to pull material to make additional cuts, ultimately freeing up the operator and reducing cycle time.

FlexCut works independently from the main pusher, allowing for differentiated rip cuts and crosscuts in a simultaneous application, explains SCM product manager Stephen Gulia.

“The FlexCut has been around a few years, but now it’s trickled down to all levels of machinery on all models. It’s a flexible solution that can provide a competitive advantage, depending on the customer,” says Gulia.

Gulia says the FlexCut can increase shop productivity up to 30 percent and result in space saving of up to 20 percent.

“On a typical beam saw, you would have to make one rip cut for length, push the panel again, make another cut, and all those cuts are the same size. Then you would have to turn the pieces to make the crosscuts. With the FlexCut, you can now do those crosscuts at the same time for better efficiency.”
