Keencut Flexo Plate Cutter - available now at ArtSystems

With the Flexo Plate Cutter, you can accurately pre-cut flexo on the flat. Use the sightline strip to precisely align to your target marks for the first and second cut – there is no need to cut flexo on the round. There is less chance of costly mistake, resulting in production downtime and the need to re-schedule work. You will quickly create seamless splices every time and save both time and money. The cutter is easy to use and with minimal training and practice.

Perfect accuracy for tight joins

The FPC (Flexo Plate Cutter) provides a lifetime of straight, precise and silent cutting. The cutting head features a set of built-in self-aligning ball bearing rollers operating on twin steel tracks. There is zero play on the cutting head sliding action, and the base is a heavy-duty, one-piece aluminium extrusion for complete stability. The precision accuracy produces seamless splices and eliminates costly mistakes, whilst the 5-degree undercut creates a tight join when the flexo is attached to the cylinder.

Bevel & 5° undercut cutting head

The spring-loaded bevel and 5° undercut blade holder features ball and thrust bearings for perfect alignment and superb blade control. The cutting head is mounted on two stainless steel tracks and hardened steel ball track rollers. All combined, they work together to give the ultimate in blade control.

A safe and simple operation

FPC is a safer alternative to cutting flexo by hand with a knife. Magnetic blade cartridges make switching between different plate thickness a safe and seamless process. You can have various blade depths pre-set within different cartridges, so a precise and repeatable cut can be made by simply switching to a new cartridge, eliminating variability, and improving accuracy. The maximum blade depth for the bevel blade is 5mm (3/16″), the 5° undercut blade fitted with a trapezoidal blade is 10mm (3/8″) and a rectangular blade is 8mm (5/16″). Simple colour coding makes it easy to identify and calibrate the pre-set depths.
