Quick Axis Ltd
Here at Quick Axis Ltd, we offer technical textiles cutting services. We provide time and cost effective production processes using three Swiss conveyorised flat bed cutting systems. Our technical textiles cutting service machines work with roll or sheet materials, (non metallic) and feature a powerful nesting software system to achieve high yields especially in roll formats.
Machine specifications include:
- Working Width: 1800mm (71")
- Material Width: Max 2080mm (82")
- Working Length: Unlimited (roll or sheet format using Conveyor feeding system)
- Working Height: Up to 12mm, software control for multiple depth passes
- Accuracy: +/-0.05mm
- Repeatability: 0.05mm
- Feeding Accuracy: +/- 0.20mm (roll feed system)
- Tool Head: 2 Tangential Controlled stations with Z-axis height control, 1 Plotting pen.
- Interchangeable Tooling: Supporting various cutting Systems and processes.
- Material Handling: 2 Roll Off devices for feeding onto Conveyor System.
Founded in 2004, we have gained wide experience in cutting a range of Varnish plate materials for the general printer through to specialist packaging and coating applications.
The cutting service can supply Flood Coat Plates for a wide range of Press Types, cut to standard formats B1, B2, SRA1 etc as well as customer defined sizes. Typically all plates are pre stripped ready for use.
Along with standard format Plates & Blankets, Quick Axis Ltd can supply Spot Varnish work for most print applications. Files can be emailed through in the following formats and a proof layout returned to ensure data is correct
Quick Axis is always looking for new production processes which benefit both our customers and ultimately the completed job. For one such application used in the Adhesive Tape Industry, the adhesive Film /Foam needs to be in laminated to a release liner for its support and stability. For this requirement a dual Feed System was developed to In-Line laminate both materials (up to 1000mm width). This prepares the Adhesive Tape on the conveyor system ready for cutting.
Combining these two operations has saved time but also a produces a better finished part. Again using the Converorised Feeding System parts can be cut larger than the machines itself. Typically adhesive tape components have the waste area removed leaving only the finished detail in place.
Other special tooling and requirements include kiss cutting single or multiple depths and perforating geometry.
All materials are typically NON-METALLIC apart from some thin foils and shims. Material depths quoted are the current capability (July 2012). The list below is a few examples of the materials we can process. If your application uses another non-metallic substrates not listed, we would be pleased to test your materials
Are you looking for a one off, a Prototype or volume production run with out paying for expensive Die-Cut tooling. Here at Quick Axis we have Conveyorised Swiss Flat Bed cutting tables capable of cutting a wide range of non-metallic materials.
If you have a drawing or a template pattern we can generate or copy this profile, and combined with a powerful nesting software best optimize your material usage. Alternatively we can also import a number data file formats and allow a rapid route to production.
Founded in 2004 Quick Axis Ltd has experience cutting thin films through to carpet tiles along with large oversize panels for inflatable and temporary structures.
SUBCONTRACT CUTTING SERVICEQuick Axis Ltd offer a wide service including holding material stocks for our customers allowing a rapid turn around of part quantities (Typically with a 1-2 day delivery) This Digital System allows any minor changes to be made to a original design with no expensive hard tooling charges. Quick Axis has often found the initial design can be pushed further than its original design concept by use of this latest Digital Technology.
