Designed for the busiest production facility, the Evolution3 SmartFold includes all the superior features of the Evolution3 range with the addition of an integral cutting strip for textiles and fragile materials. The SmartFold can be folded down to clear the bench and then returned in seconds to be immediately ready for use.
Single-handed, fast accurate alignment
Two unique features enable single-handed, fast and accurate alignment of all materials irrespective of thickness. The Lift-and-Hover system enables the clamping bar to be easily raised and then lowered so it hovers just above the material surface. The anti-sag mechanism means the cutter bar can be suspended exactly parallel to the media surface over the whole length of the cut with zero sag, even on the longest sized cutter.
The Evolution3 is the most accurate cutter of its type on the market and is guaranteed to cut within 0.2mm (0.008″) of a straight line for the full length of the cut. The in-built ultra-high precision accuracy, combined with the perfect alignment made possible using the sightline strip, means every butt-jointed panel will join seamlessly. This ultra-high precision accuracy will save you time and money with less waste and fewer mistakes.
The self-adjusting track roller system fitted to the QuikSwap tool heads provides a strong and smooth movement up and down the length of the cutter bar, with zero sideways movement to ensure a perfect straight line. This, coupled with rigid blade clamping, gives perfect blade control and spot-on accuracy, so less wastage and mistakes.
Simple to use
The combination of the Lift-and-Hover and the sightline strip really does make cutting easier and faster than ever before. Even first-time users will be able to cut accurately with confidence.
Heavy duty reliability
The entire Evolution3 range has been built to last, using high quality materials and well tested engineering principles. The cutting head bearing system and clamping are tough enough to keep perfect blade control, even with the most difficult of materials. Keencut makes the majority of components on its precision CNC machines, keeping tolerances and quality under constant control, assuring exceptional accuracy and total reliability.
Keencut’s unique Lift-and-Hover (patent pending) technology enables fast single-handed, and accurate alignment of all material, irrespective of thickness. Lower the clamping bar until it hovers just above the material surface with zero sag, even on the longest 5.5m (216″) length cutter, then use the sightline strip to see where the cut will be made, and finally, fully engage the clamp and cut – it’s so simple.
