add this page to the web

Our brand new Atom Flashcut Flex 'S' has arrived

Manufacturing custom gaskets just got a lot easier and a lot less expensive with a high-speed knife cutting system that cuts without a die!

Flashcut systems are CNC based gasket cutting machines able to slice through most soft and semi-rigid materials with precision and tight tolerances, much like a waterjet without using water.

Die-less knife cutters can perform kiss-cuts with ease.

Economical solution for large parts in lieu of building a cutting die. Perfect for projects needing quick prototyping with close attention to aesthetics, as the process causes no concavity and produces clean cut edges.

Furthermore, state-of-the-art software allows for automatic nesting of shapes within shapes as a result increasing yield and reducing waste.

Frequently Asked Questions About Die-Less Knife Cutting

How Does Dieless Knife Cutting Work?

Die-less knife cutter machines Do Not Need a custom built die. They are based on a CNC system with a programmable, oscillating knife blade cutter on a bed-type table.

High powered LED lights project design right on to the cutting table. This allows operator to visualize and improve arrangment before any cutting begins.

State-of-the-art software allows for automatic nesting of shapes within shapes, hence yield is increased and waste is reduced.

Can Dieless Cutting Machines Cut Compressed Fiber?
