S3 Tandem Operation
Back to overview

Tandem operation

In tandem processing mode, loading/unloading and processing take place at the same time.


Tandem operation

While the operator loads material on one side, the cutter continues operating on the other. This increases workflow efficiency, keeps idle time to a minimum, and maximizes throughput. In a tandem setup, the working area consists of two vacuum plates that can be switched on and off independently of one another. Each side of the working area is equipped with controls for switching the vacuum on/off and for resuming production. Once the material is loaded, the vacuum can be re-activated on that side of the cutter. Once the material is properly loaded, the operator pushes the release button so processing can continue.
