First introduced in 2005, it was originally designed to cut fiberglass insulation material using a pizza wheel knife mounted on an HVAC plasma system gantry. Subsequent versions included an oscillating function for cutting rigid foam/rubber insulation.
The advent of MultiCam’s knife cutting technology opened up markets in graphic arts, digital printing, packaging, automotive, aerospace, textiles, gaskets, and many other industries. Today a significant percentage of all machines shipped by MultiCam have an optional knife assembly in addition to the primary cutting head.
The company’s 2014 CNC knife has fully programmable, 360-degree servo rotational capabilities. It’s mounted on a precision THK bearing assembly and the compact design is available in either a single- or dual-knife configuration. Optional cutting heads include oscillating, drag, kiss-cut, pizza wheel, creasing and bevel. Knives are standard on all digital finishing machines and optional on all CNC router and plasma machines.
