One Step: SteelTraK Straight to Printer

The SteelTraK casts no debris, which means it, can be positioned right next to your printing machines without fear of airborne dust damaging the project or resulting in do-overs. Built in to your production line (wall-mounted to save space, or using an optional freestanding kit), the SteelTraK is a guaranteed time and money saver.

State-of-the-Art Counterbalance

The rear spine of the SteelTraK is fitted with a counterbalance that allows users to put the head in any position without it dropping to the bottom of the machine. The cumbersome process involved with other vertical cutters – of lifting up the head, applying the brake, and screwing it in place while simultaneously loading the material – is eliminated. The counterbalance eliminates the load from the cutting head, and because operators aren’t lifting the full weight of the head, they can concentrate solely on cutting the material. The end result: time savings and productivity gains.


Heavy-Duty Design

A robust frame that includes extruded aluminum back beams offers support for sheets of all sizes and prevents offcuts (including flexible materials) from falling through the frame.
