The standard application SIMOTION Flying Saw is providing open software standards based on the motion control system SIMOTION for flying saws and flying sheers, e.g. for foil, metal, paper, cardboard, etc. Features: Cut to length of moving material, automatic operation, immediate cut, cut to length or to a print mark, virtual or real master set-point.

Task & solution
The standard application SIMOTION Flying Saw was developed with the objective to design a flexible solution for synchronic cutting of material. Some materials can not be cut widthwise in one processing step due to their material characteristics. These materials will be cut with the open standard application Flying Saw, realized on the SIMOTION system platform. To avoid effects on the cut of the moving material, the cutting unit is synchronized to the material during the cutting process.
