Pathfinder M-Series - Multi Ply Automatic Cutting System
The Pathfinder M-Series® range of automated cutting machines are known for precision, very high productivity and reliability and lowest power consumption. All 16 models (4 cutting width options x 4 cutting heights) are easily configured to suit most cutting applications. And thanks to clever design, Pathfinder cutters require very little maintenance to continually deliver exceptional cut quality over a long working life.
Designed to be the most advanced composite knife cutting system available, producing the highest cut quality and productivity. The M-series conveyorised bristle bed holds material under vacuum during the cutting process, enabling high-speed precision cuts from single ply up to 100mm of compressed spreads.
From cutting multiple ply kits of Kevlar/carbon fibre/polyester fillers and alike or single ply prepregs and honeycomb, Pathfinder's M-series cutter is the ultimate solution. We offer 12 machine models, making it the widest range available. Choose the best machine to suit your application without compromise.
Cutting widths available: Mx180=1800mm (71inches), Mx220=2260mm (89 inches) and Mx390=3900mm (153 inches)
Cutting heights available: M3xxx=30mm (1.2 inches), M5xxx=50mm (2 inches), M7xxx=70mm (2.8 inches) and M10xxx=100mm (3.9 inches)
Key to model code:
(Mx180- max cutting width represented by '180')
(M5xxx- max compressed cutting height represented by '5')
With over 20 application specific options, Pathfinder will have the perfect solution to maximize your profit.
The M-series continues the design philosophy of its predecessor, a benchmark for reliability. With less than 50% of moving parts and with a unique control system comprising only one (1) circuit board assembly, reliability is built into the design. When it comes to reliability, there is nothing like a Pathfinder CNC fabric cutter.
Highest productivity is achieved by technology that can deliver and combine the best of multiple disciplines: Speed, motion control, ergonomics and application specific features. The M-series automatic cutting system delivers technology to maximise your profits.
The Pathfinder M-series cutter is designed and manufactured by Pathfinder in their Australian factory, meaning you are guaranteed to get the best technology and quality money can buy.
Pathfinder has always manufactured with care for the environment. The benefit of technology designed around environmentally sound manufacturing practices has far reaching effects beyond the obvious, such as low power consumption and the use of recyclable materials.
