Composite cutting challenges: materials of the future

From automotive to nautics, from sport to wind power, through aerospace and medical, composite materials are expanding in many application fields.

Their main features, high resistance and low specific weight, make them the ideal solution for different applications.
Born from the union of two or more different materials joined together, matrix + reinforcement, a composite guarantees superior and different properties if compared to the starting constituents taken individually.
The performance that can be achieved change based on the component materials, the geometries and the production process.

Machines for processing composites follow the evolution and complexity of these materials, aiming for high quality standards.

The cutting is carried out with semi-automated CNC machines housing a series of tools which have been chosen based on the material to be cut. An intuitive, easy-to-understand HMI and programs that optimize the process, minimizing wastes, make continuous cutting possible for supporting or increasing production rates.

Our cutting solution: SM-322-TA for cutting composites

The cutting of preimpregnated materials or prepreg

A pre-impregnated fabric is a semi-finished product whose fibers are already impregnated with resin in the right proportions. This constant, matrix/fiber ratio, guarantees an essential requirement to obtain repeatable results.

When it comes to cutting prepreg materials, the type of fibers, as well as resins used, but also processes, volumes, production times and application fields should always be taken into consideration. The different cutting technologies are not indiscriminately suitable for all materials, each fabric must be evaluated carefully. The choice of the most proper technology will affect the precision and general quality of the parts in production.

Automatic cutting is carried out with semi-automated CNC machines or plotters.

Prepregs cut by our machine





Different cutting technologies: blade, ultrasonic or laser

When it comes to cutting prepreg materials, to obtain a precise cut but also to leave unaltered the properties of the material that will undergo subsequent processing, there are many factors to consider.

There is no universal technology for cutting prepregs, each decision must be evaluated with the support of industry experts.

Concerning automatic cutting, there are different technologies available on the market: blade cutting, ultrasonic cutting, laser cutting. Each of them will give a different result, in terms of cutting. Let’s compare them.

Plug & Play

Our cutting machine has double hubs and can house up to two tools at the same time, in addition to the marker, the laser pointer and the possibility of having two punching tools.

The great advantage is the quick tool exchange: you can change the tool in just a few steps, all in less than 1 minute.

If the customer decides to extend the product line and cut new materials, or simply start cutting with a new cutting technology, it’s sufficient to purchase the desired tool and proceed with the change. The solution in a few simple steps.

Safety Systems

The SM-332-TA is equipped with an advanced safety system, aimed at ensuring the safety of the operator. Radar sensors on the deck and cutting head ensure that operator can work safely.

When an obstacle is detected, the machine automatically stops at a pre-set safety distance of 500 mm (radar placed on the head) or 800 mm (radar placed on the deck).

Versatility and reliability

The SM-332-TA was born as a highly flexible machine, designed to maximize production efficiency and meet a wide range of cutting requirements.

The experience gained over the years and careful design have led to the development of a machine with a robust structure with quality components and high performance.
