Integrated cutting system
The new Athena 3 is our top of the range integrated cutting system and features dual cutting tracks, one for the blade and another for the cutting wheel. It can be attached to an existing worktable or alternatively it can be attached to one of our purpose built Atlas tables to create the perfect cutting station. Adjustable mounting brackets allow the base extrusion to be easily adjusted for both level and straightness; both of which are necessary for accurate cutting. A torsion bar allows the cutter to be controlled from a single lever at either end and a flip stop prevents the movement of those difficult to cut substrates. A full length measuring scale is included as standard. The replaceable integrated cutting wheel track allows textile and other delicate materials to be cut cleanly and accurately when a knife blade is not suitable. When not in use, the cutter bar can be rotated to a safe position under the cutting table or work-bench when not required, leaving an unobstructed work surface for performing other procedures.
The Athena is available in 6 sizes:
• 1.6m (64”) • 2.1 (84”) • 2.6m (104”) • 3.1m (124”) • 3.6m (144”).
The cutting head, which features an ergonomically designed handle is common to all Trimalco cutter rails. The head can be pushed or pulled and requires no dexterity whatsoever making it equally suitable for use by both left and right-handed users.
An integral lift mechanism on each end of the unit allows for easy material loading.
