What is a digital cutting table?

Digital cutting tables are an essential part of the kit for most wide format printers, but there are many options to choose from.


Every print service provider knows that printing is only half the game; the print media must still be finished - converted into a product - before it can be sold. Of all the various types of finishing equipment available, digital cutting tables are one of the most versatile. They are not cheap, but as with anything, you get what you pay for, and a good quality cutting table is more durable than most printers and should be able to handle the output of multiple printers.


Most cutting tables can cope with a wide range of applications. Wide-format users started buying cutting tables twenty years ago when the first flatbed printers appeared in order to cut the rigid panels used to display graphics. Today, however, these tables are also used for short-term packaging and for textile cutting for apparel and home décor applications.


In the simplest terms, these tables consist of a flatbed for holding media and a gantry that runs across the bed and supports a cutting head that moves across the width. However, there are a number of things to consider before deciding which one to invest in. The most obvious is the size of the bed, which must be large enough to cope with the work you do now, and the type of work you want to do in the future.

Applications of IECHO PK Automatic Intelligent Cutting System

IECHO PK automatic intelligent cutting system adopts fully automatic vacuum chuck and automatic lifting and feeding platform. Equipped with a variety of tools, it can quickly and precisely make through cutting, half cutting, creasing, and marking. It is suitable for sample making and short-run customized production for the Signs, Printing, and Packaging industries. It is cost-effective smart equipment that meets all your creative processing.


Obviously, a larger bed will require a wider gantry and the cutting head will have to move over a larger area, which will put more strain on the drive system. Some simpler tables will use belts to drive the gantry movement, but a rack and pinion drive will be more accurate, and larger tables will benefit from a linear magneto drive for more accurate cuts. In addition, the faster the drive system can move the head, the more productive the table will be.


Most suppliers will offer a wide choice of cutting heads, but at least one header should be able to accommodate multiple tools and be able to switch automatically between tools so that the operator does not have to do so. The cutting head must be powerful enough to handle all the substrates you may want to cut. The greater the density of the material, the more power you will need. Most digital cutting systems should be able to handle plastic panels, foam cores, and corrugated cardboard, but maybe slower for wood and laminated aluminum.


Most suppliers will also offer a range of different tools, which should include tools for creasing and perforating, as well as cabling tools for handling certain denser materials. In addition to basic cutting knives, there should be tangential knives and tools for specific types of cutting, such as V-cutting and kiss cutting.
