Keencut Evolution3 - SmartFold

Product Description
Call for a quote: 518-583-2818
Maximum quantity available reached.

Keencut Evolution2 is discontinued and replaced by the Evolution3 Range of Cutters. The Evolution3 SmartFold cutter is the most similar to the E2 design.

Designed for the busiest production facility, the Evolution3 SmartFold includes all the superior features of the Evolution3 range with the addition of an integral cutting strip for textiles and fragile materials. The SmartFold can be folded down to clear the bench and then returned in seconds to be immediately ready for use. Keencut’s unique Lift-and-Hover (patent pending) technology enables fast single-handed, and accurate alignment of all material, irrespective of thickness. Lower the clamping bar until it hovers just above the material surface with zero sag, even on the longest 5.5m (216″) length cutter, then use the sightline strip to see where the cut will be made, and finally, fully engage the clamp and cut – it’s so simple.

Keencut Evolution3 Brochure

Features:

Single-handed, fast accurate alignment

Two unique features enable single-handed, fast and accurate alignment of all materials irrespective of thickness. The Lift-and-Hover system enables the clamping bar to be easily raised and then lowered so it hovers just above the material surface. The anti-sag mechanism means the cutter bar can be suspended exactly parallel to the media surface over the whole length of the cut with zero sag, even on the longest sized cutter.

Guaranteed accuracy

The Evolution3 is the most accurate cutter of its type on the market and is guaranteed to cut within 0.2mm (0.008″) of a straight line for the full length of the cut. The in-built ultra-high precision accuracy, combined with the perfect alignment made possible using the sightline strip, means every butt-jointed panel will join seamlessly. This ultra-high precision accuracy will save you time and money with less waste and fewer mistakes.

Total stability

The self-adjusting track roller system fitted to the QuikSwap tool heads provides a strong and smooth movement up and down the length of the cutter bar, with zero sideways movement to ensure a perfect straight line. This, coupled with rigid blade clamping, gives perfect blade control and spot-on accuracy, so less wastage and mistakes.

Simple to use

The combination of the Lift-and-Hover and the sightline strip really does make cutting easier and faster than ever before. Even first-time users will be able to cut accurately with confidence.

Heavy duty reliability

The entire Evolution3 range has been built to last, using high quality materials and well tested engineering principles. The cutting head bearing system and clamping are tough enough to keep perfect blade control, even with the most difficult of materials. Keencut makes the majority of components on its precision CNC machines, keeping tolerances and quality under constant control, assuring exceptional accuracy and total reliability.

Future proof and versatile QuikSwap tool heads

The QuikSwap tool head family gives users the ultimate flexibility. Each tool is designed for a specific purpose, such as general cutting, creasing and fabric cutting and can be attached or detached from the cutter in seconds. You can mount single or multiple tool heads to suit your work. The Graphik tool head is supplied as standard with other optional QuikSwap tool heads available to extend your cutting capability. New tools are also being developed to meet emerging requirements.

The versatile Rocker head

The optional Rocker tool head is the latest addition to the QuikSwap range. It is a versatile general-purpose tool for cutting materials such as banners, cardboard and foamboard up to 10mm (3/8″). The ergonomic design follows the natural curvature of your hand and offers maximum comfort for everyday cutting. It also provides two-way cutting – pulling to cut lighter weight materials and pushing for those that require more effort. For those who occasionally cut aluminum composite panels, such as Dibond or Alupanel, the Rocker head can be fitted with the Tech-D.012 blade. The cutting technique requires a series of careful strokes and we advise that you watch our video guide to perfect your cutting action.

Cutting strip included

The SmartFold includes an integral polymer cutting strip for textiles and fragile materials. A simple push button at each end of the bar allows the cutter to be set on any of four cut lines, extending the life of the strip. There is no need for a separate cutting mat.

Clear bench

Within a few seconds, you can fold the SmartFold down to clear your bench for other work and then simply flip it back up ready for action.

Five year guarantee

Like all Keencut machines, the Evolution3 is built to give many years of excellent service. All components are manufactured in-house to ensure quality and all Evolution3 cutters come with a five year comprehensive guarantee.
