Digital Cutting Machine Buyer Guide

What is the Digital Cutting Machine?

The digital cutting machine is a CNC cutting equipment mainly used to process flexible materials. In the market, users have many names for the CNC digital cutter such as oscillating knife cutting machine, CNC knife cutting machine, CNC knife cutter, flatbed cutter, oscillating knife cutter, and so on. The digital cutting machine uses the high-frequency vibration of the blade to achieve the cutting purpose. It has processing advantages such as smooth incision, high cutting precision, fast cutting speed, and flexible processing. It is currently the most popular cutting equipment for flexible materials. The processed materials mainly include non-metallic flexible materials such as cloth, silk loop, leather, felt, carpet, silicone, rubber, KT board, and so on.

What is Digital Cutting?

Digital cutting technology allows precise cutting without the use of a die through a computer programmed path. With this method, you get all the benefits of traditional die-cutting and a large amount of material can be cut. You can use digital cutting for smaller-scale projects, but it does work for large format printing and jobs such as prominent signage and similar graphic devices.

Today, those using digital cutting often use innovative machines such as PK automatic intelligent cutting system we have at IECHO, PK automatic intelligent cutting system adopts an automatic vacuum suction cup and automatic lifting and feeding platform. Equipped with a variety of tools for fast and precise cutting, half-cutting, creasing, and marking. It is suitable for proofing and small-batch custom production in the sign, printing, and packaging industries. It is a cost-effective and intelligent machine for all your creative processing.

How to Choose a Digital Cutting Machine Supplier?

Factory Production Scale

First of all, the size of the factory shows the strength of a manufacturer to a certain extent. For example, the factory has a large production area, which shows from the side that the manufacturer has a large number of orders, frequent business exchanges, and many cooperation partners. It proves that it is a reliable and powerful manufacturer.

Machine Accessories

Parts are the smallest units that make up a digital cutter machine, and they are also the most basic and important parts. A criterion for observing whether a manufacturer is a high-quality manufacturer is to see which CNC parts brand they cooperate with and what kind of machine parts they use. Because only a good digital cutter provider will use famous brand, good quality, and high price machine parts.

Technology and Innovation

Technology and innovation ability is also an important evaluation index to test whether the manufacturer of a digital die cutting machine can develop stably in the long run.
