NT XXL – Marking Unit
Studied to integrate the automatic nesting tools of the cutting units, NT/XL and NT/XXL are off line digitizing and nesting tables for skins. It is a new concept unit, with advanced functionality and sophisticated tools but also as slender, practical and ergonomic as the manual marking tables. Using the new NT, in combination with the high productivity cutting islands, eliminates decompensation between the nesting time and the cutting time in such equipements. In such a way, depending on the cases, a significant increase in productivity can be achieved.
Easy and Ergonomic
NT/XL and NT/XXL are highly efficient and ergonomic work stations for various operations
Leather measurement/grading and yield calculation (based on real cutting simulation of single or multiple hides)
Leather digitalizing (marking of defects and quality areas) and pattern nesting (manual nesting, manual nesting of the main pieces and automatic nesting for all other pieces, automatic nesting)
Only leather digitalizing. A real time automatic nesting is done directly on the machine, while cutting.
Simple and Complete
A practical and light tubular frame supports a top unit that integrates 3/4 high definition cameras for hide boundary detection and control of the virtual marking pen; 2/3 laser projectors, always visible, for virtual marking projection and manual nesting of patterns; a powerful led lighting, integrated by a protection curtain for direct natural light (optional).
A tilted suction table, with conveyor belt, can easily process all types of hides (full hides, half hides or even multiple hides) and allows a leather examination always close to the operator.
A special digital pen that prevents scratching on the leather is used for the virtual marking of the hide defects/quality areas and to give the main system commands (no need to use the PC mouse)
Speed Meter conveyor belt
A patented system to locate the cutting with the maximum precision, with a speed meter band at the side of the rolling slide, optically scanned, that finds always the exact positioning of the conveyor belt, correcting also the eventually consumed slipping carpets.
Laser placement, color collection
The integrated laser projectors always guarantee complete and optimum visibility of the piece shapes to be nested for every type and color of material. The large work area is illuminated by a system of LED lamps, each focused to avoid direct reflection in the direction of the operator and to better highlight the characteristics of the leather.
