Cutting composites, the specialty of FKgroup
Composite materials are the future, as the numbers show: their use in recent years has grown by more than 50 percent, as has participation in events such as JEC World.
They are lightweight, strong, stable, plastic, and quick to process, both in cutting and assembly and are rapidly replacing other materials in many industries. For example, in apparel, aeronautics, automotive, and marine. Correct lamination is one of the main requirements for optimum performance in industries where even the slightest imperfection can make a difference, especially in joint areas. This is why high precision in cutting is crucial.
FKgroup offers state-of-the-art technological solutions for the industrial cutting of composite materials and technical textiles. Its cutting and drafting systems lend themselves to a wide variety of industries and boast a remarkable portfolio of unique and patented solutions, always with the highest technological content. Not only that, FKgroup is particularly appreciated for its ability to thoroughly understand the peculiar needs of each customer, resulting in ad hoc solutions when necessary.

JEC World 2023
Our Italian and foreign salespeople will be present at the FKgroup booth, which will cover an area of more than 130 square meters, to illustrate the operation, capabilities, and advantages of the company’s cutting systems.
In particular, a running cutting line specifically for cutting composites will be available, consisting of:
A uniquely designed feeding cradle that fits conveyor cutting systems available at JEC World 2023. Its main features include the presence of a dancing bar to control fabric tension, as well as a photocell for perfect alignment of the material. It allows perfect synchronization with the cutting belt and is equipped with parallel belts for Ø 50 cm rolls, extendable up to 100 cm.
This automatic conveyor cutting system for mattresses up to 2.5 cm is the ideal solution for any production need, from prototyping to high-volume production.
It allows continuous feeding of the material to be cut, thanks to the Non Stop Cutting System. In addition, it is suitable for cutting substantial mattresses thanks to the Quick Release Vacuum QRV System. It is also configurable with different cutting areas and has a wide availability of accessories.
FKgroup’s Augmented Reality Camera (Augmented Reality Camera) is ideal for cutting panels, rows, and squares, even mattress panels, by combining CAD + CAMERA + NESTING + CAM technologies in one solution. It features DASforCut software, which can generate internal contours, notches, reference points, meeting points and more. It allows cutting time to be reduced by up to 70% compared to the traditional positioning system, with the best accuracy and quality of results.
A CAD workstation will also be available.
FKgroup offers a complete package of CAD software solutions called Bundle 4.
The software allows importing from 3D objects, creating 2D figures, importing and exporting DXFs made with popular cad systems, as well as from scanners or other capture devices, and generating cut files.
Watchable live at JEC World 2023, it features a default nesting system with auto-nesting capability.
