RTL Router/Mill.

Extra-long series machines for large format cutting

Machines up to 21 mtrs long enable cutting of multiple long sheets. Eliminates switch-over delays between sheets. For example: 2 x 9 mtr sheets can be loaded at once - cutting at one end and unloading and loading at the other end.

Processing lengths up to 21 mtrs are available for dual zone processing of 9 mtr sheets

Heavy duty fabrication

Fully welded steel chassis construction using 250mm deep PFC & UB profiles. Close cross beam spacing gives unparalleled stability. Steel is machined for precision linear components.

Read more

Wireless pendant controller

Allows the operator to get close to the action for optimal view during manual operations, or even stop the machine remotely from anywhere in the factory. Works in conjunction with touchscreen.

Read more

Built-in WiFi networking

The controller easily connects into your existing WiFi network for downloading job files. Also supports remote access and diagnostics for the ART service team.

Heavy duty AC servo drives

Coupled with precision planetary gearboxes provide fast positioning. Hardened and ground helical rack and pinion provides smooth motion with excellent edge finish on machining.

Read more

Telescopic Z axis

The spindle can retract high above the deck while maintaining extreme rigidity over the full travel. Allows for extra deep cutting due to the ability to lift a long tool above a thick substrate.

ProfileShop V3 Controller

ProfileShop graphical controller interface makes operation very fast to learn, while enabling a vast array of powerful features that make it one of the most efficient machines to use.

Read more

Rotating Inkjet Printhead

Part numbers, fold lines, welding or assembly instructions and more can be printed directly onto any material. Print head rotates to print in any direction.

ART iCam Vision System

Integrated into the ART controller. No extra third party computer system required. Camera automatically locates registration points and the aligns cut paths to suit distorted prints. Also traces patterns or existing parts.

Read more

Scissor Lift

Works in conjunction with the automatic sheet loader. Load up a whole pallet load of material on the scissor lift to reduce manual handling.

Read more

Pen & Marker tools

Pen and marker tools are available for automatic part numbering. Particularly useful for identifying items within large nests of similar parts.

Read more

Aggregate tooling

Available in many configurations including reciprocating saws, chisels, floating engravers, side boring drills and saws. Automatic loading.

Read more

Extrusion clamping system

Customised clamping jigs are available for machining aluminium and other extrusions. Multiple lengths can be processed in one fixing. Smaller profiles can be cut all the way through for fence posts etc.

Read more

Rigid thread tapping

Allows the use of thread taps. Machine first drills holes then automatically changes to tapping tool to cut thread.

Read more

Steered straight and angled knives

Allows processing of sheet or foamed materials. Various angles available. Special controller algorithms allow blades to enter material at correct angle. Bi-directional tool paths allow V shaped cuts

Read more

Cutting and creasing wheels

Allows processing of thin materials such as cardboard or fibreglass matting. Many different configurations are available including wheels and blades. Automatic loading. Requires C axis.

Read more

Pop-up locating pins

Computer controlled locating pins can be used for both manual and automatic sheet loading. The sheet is pushed against the pins which then pop down automatically when cutting begins.

Read more

Sheet unloader/pusher bar

Push completed nests or sheets of material off the bed onto an unloading table. Improves productivity. Often used in conjunction with the automatic sheet loader.

Read more

Automatic sheet loader

Using vacuum lifting cups, the computer controlled sheet loader pulls material onto the cutting deck, then automatically pushes it down and across against the locating pop-up pins.

Read more

Bar code scanner

Just scan the bar code on the nest report and the correct file is loaded into the controller automatically. Reduces human error and automates the process.

Read more

C Axis

Fast powerful C axis The C axis accessory enables the use of steered tooling such as knives, saws and aggregate tooling. Enables the use of steered tools such as knives and saws, as well as aggregates for drilling or machining on side faces. A C Axis may also be used for rigid tapping if required.

Automatic vacuum sector valves

Computer controlled valves are available to control the zones on the vacuum table. The controller automatically detects which vacuum zones the job is over and turns the vacuum on or off in that area.

Read more

Under Deck Auto Tool Changer

Large tools and aggregates can be loaded from a rack that is installed under the deck. The tools are covered to keep dust and swarf away from precision surfaces. Machine loads and unloads automatically. Up to 10 tools can be automatically changed using this optional accessory.
