NC cutting machines

P-CAM100C/120C/160C/180C

SOLUTIONS FOR CUTTING INDUSTRIAL MATERIALS

SHIMA SEIKI’s new P-CAM100C, P-CAM120C, P-CAM160C, and P-CAM180C NC cutting machine (computerized cutting machine) are ideal for cutting sheets of Carbon- and Glass-Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP and GFRP) pre-impregnated composites (prepregs). In addition to conventional drag knife and reciprocating knife, ultrasonic knife can also be selected, allowing cutting of a wide range of materials such as rubber, leather, vinyl, thermoplastics, adhesive materials and water-repellent fabrics up to 20mm in thickness and in multi-ply applications. Cutting depth and height are automatically adjusted to aid in longevity of the blade. Furthermore various measures are taken in consideration of the type of materials to be cut on this machine, such as dust prevention, auto knife cleaning and cutting mat laydown. Double-cut prevention function and special cutting brushes are standard. Cutting length begins at a compact 880mm, while the cutting area can be customized for long items. By using the optional barcode scanner, operation accuracy and efficiency is increased significantly by preventing mistakes upon pattern data input. Machine installation can be performed in one-piece or in separate sections for smaller spaces. Together with SHIMA SEIKI’s SDS-ONE APEX3 CAD system, P-CAM100C, P-CAM120C, P-CAM160C, and P-CAM180C provide smooth and efficient computer-to-cutting for a variety of industries from automotive and aerospace to industrial materials.

Highly Accurate Cutting

Highly Accurate Cutting

Cutting is selectable among drag knife, reciprocating knife and ultrasonic knife. The drag knife can be replaced easily as a unit. Furthermore the reciprocating knife utilizes automatic knife sharpening for higher accuracy in cutting. By changing the cutting position, life expectancy can be extended for the knife (except reciprocating knife).

Head Height Control

Head Height Control

Fabric thickness is detected automatically upon suction, thereby controlling optimum head height for increased cutting accuracy and efficiency.

Double-Cut Prevention

Double-Cut Prevention

When cutting two patterns that are next to each other and share a common pattern line, P-CAM can cut the line with a single cut for improved accuracy and efficiency by preventing double cut. By applying this process automatically, leadtime for editing data can be reduced as well.

Automatic Labeling Device (Optional)

Automatic Labeling Device (Optional)

A special labeling head patterns that are next to each other and share a common pattern line, P-CAM can cut the line with a single cut for improved accuracy and efficiency. Moreover, by applying this process automatically, leadtime for editing data can be reduced.

Cutting Table Brush

Cutting Table Brush

With the brush-type cutting table, strong and effective suction can be applied across the entire material for stable cutting. Brushes have a long wear-life, and should the need arise they be exchanged piece-by-piece for easy maintenance.

Touch-Control Monitor

Touch-Control Monitor

A large touch-sensitive LCD monitor is used for the operation screen. The menu is designed for easy operation even for beginners. In addition to English and Japanese menus, a Chinese menu is also available for supporting current trends in global sourcing.

Safety Devices

Safety Devices

Emergency stop buttons are located at all 4 corners of the machine, and safety devices such as a pause button and safety bar are fitted on the Y-beam to ensure safe operation.

P-EDITOR (optional)

P-EDITOR (optional)

In order to maximize P-CAM's capabilities in the cutting room, P-EDITOR enables editing of CAD data in various formats, including those created with CAD systems other than Shima Seiki's SDS-ONE APEX. For example, special points such as Start Point, Reversal Point and Loop Cutting Point can be set. Cutting speed can also be specified for each part. Data for notch, drilling, and marking can be input, modified and deleted as well. In this way, P-EDITOR allows P-CAM to perform precise cutting of data which were previously limited in data compatibility.

Projector (optional)

Projector (optional)

Pattern images are projected onto the fabric based on cutting data for effective control over parts positioning, and where necessary, re-positioning. Any fabric skew is compensated when cutting, making it easy to perform pattern matching. It is also possible to reposition the patterns to avoid wrinkles and other flaws in the material. It can also be used to recut smaller parts out of large rough parts in multi-ply applications.

Support of Barcodes and QR Codes (Optional)

Support of Barcodes and QR Codes (Optional)

By using bar codes and QR codes, selection of parts can be performed instantly using a scanner. Eliminating manual selection ensures quality control by lowering the possibility for human error.
