OptiCAM (REGISTRATION CAMERA)
The Tekcel OptiCAM digital camera registration system locates registration marks in artwork generated by varied source files such as .ai, .cdl, .cdr and many more, to cut paths around images. OptiCAM’s software program automatically re-calibrates the cut path to compensate for any misalignment in the loading, stretching or rotaion that may have occurred during the printing or, in the case of roll-fed printers, the lamination process. Given the growing number of companies that are now printing directly to rigid sheet materials – from foamboard and aluminium composite to more substantial substrates like acrylic and MDF, OptiCAM can be fitted to new machines and retrofitted to many existing Tekcel Routers.
OptiCUT (RECIPROCATING KNIFE)
The Tekcel OptiCUT is a knife cutting system originally designed to be paired with the Tekcel OptiCAM to create a Print Finishing solution for Tekcel router users. It was soon proved that OptiCUT was a very versatile tool. From cutting window film to gasket and insulation material the Tekcel OptiCUT systems can handle cutting many varied substrates. Contact us to find out which OptiCUT System will best suit your requirements. OptiCUT can be fitted to new machines and retrofitted to many existing Tekcel Routers.
Tekcel manufactures two coolant atomisers that can that can be installed on your Tekcel CNC Routing machine.
The first is our long-standing coolant atomizer, fitted to the Z Axis of the machine, delivering targeted mist coolant to the cutting tool and material through dual adjustable gooseneck hoses.
Our recently introduced high pressure coolant atomiser was designed as a solution for Tekcel CNC Routers primarily cutting metal. The mist coolant is targeted to the cutting area with four gooseneck hoses that are fixed to a custom dust foot for precision delivery. This also allows the processing of multi tool jobs without the need to readjust the orientation of the gooseneck delivery hoses. The coolant is stored in a reservoir fixed to the front left leg of the machine for easy access. Contact us to find out which Coolant Mist System will be best suited for your application. A Tekcel Coolant Atomiser can be retrofitted to many existing Tekcel Routers.
1 OR 2 VACUUM HOLD DOWN PUMPS
Tekcel can provide one or two 7.5 kW Side Channel Blowers with a Tekcel CNC Router. These vacuum hold down pumps work in conjunction with our standard vacuum hold down tabletop, manifold and valve system. Vacuum hold down pumps are electrically wired into the Tekcel CNC machine to automatically start and stop with each job. Our Teckel technical sales representatives can advise which system is best for your application
EXTENDED 300mm HIGH GANTRY CLEARANCE
Tekcel CNC Routing machines can be constructed with a 300mm high gantry clearance. The Z axis backing plate and machine gantry ends are fabricated to accommodate the extra height required for custom machining.
EXTENDED 500mm HIGH GANTRY CLEARANCE
Tekcel CNC Routing machines can be constructed with a 500mm high gantry clearance. The Z axis backing plate and heavy duty machine gantry ends are fabricated to accommodate the extra height required for custom machining. This option is only available on machines that are 1.5 metres wide.
SHEET REGISTRATION POP-UP PINS
Tekcel CNC Routing machines can be fitted with sheet registration pop up pins. Three pop up pins are located on the right hand side of the machine and two at the front of the machine. The pneumatically operated pins are raised and lowered through the operator Touch Screen Interface. A safety feature built into the machine controller automatically lowers the pins before cutting can commence. This option can only be retrofitted to some Enduro and Verso machine models.
The Tekcel Laser Pointer allows you to quickly set an origin while cutting a job from scrap material. Coupled with plot file preview, the operator is able to preview the job to verify it will be cut within the bounds of the edge of the scrap material. Eliminating waste and improving productivity.
SURFACE MAPPING TOOL
A Tekcel Surface Mapping Tool is fitted in a toolholder in the spindle of the machine. Following an operator prescribed array, the probe maps the material thickness of the substrate, saving the data to the machine controller. The material can then be cut or engraved to a specified depth, evenly across the material without the disadvantages of a nose cone.
TEKCEL DUST EXTRACTOR
A Tekcel Dust Extractor with its high suction pressure, micro pore filter and high volume flow rate ensures a clean, safe work environment. An articulated swing arm avoids problems with collapsing, clogging, static build-up and wear of plastic hose. A 550 gsm calendared micro pore filter, filters fine dust particles for a clean, healthy working environment. A metal drum on the base of the Tekcel Dust Extractor collects swarf, dust and debris and requires routine emptying. A Tekcel Dust Extractor can be retrofitted to many existing Tekcel Routers.
ProfileLab 2-D Software has been offered as standard with Tekcel CNC routing machines for more than 20 years. ProfileLab is produced and developed by CADlink Corporation in Canada. Our longstanding relationship with CADlink has led to the development of features and functionality in ProfileLab that are specifically suited to Tekcel CNC Routers. ProfileLab is easy to use and feature rich enabling you to get up and running immediately.
