Aeronaut introducing updated cutters

Machine manufacturer Aeronaut Automation will be displaying its latest cutters at Visual Impact, including the Mikron 2, and newly designed Proton.


The company, based in Terry Hills, Sydney, has been manufacturing wide format flatbed automated cutters for over 20 years. The output includes laser and ultrasonic cutters, rotary, tangential and oscillating blade cutters, specialising in bespoke orders, some as large as 10m x 50m.


John Clark, owner, Aeronaut, explains, “We actually make the biggest plotters in the world, 10m x 50m is not out of the question. Our major market is about three and a half metres wide machines and up to 30m long.


“We offer laser and ultrasonic as well as blade cutters and are the only people that offer the full range of cutting technologies, something which is often needed in the Australian market.


“For banners, trade shows, woven fabric, we are right up there with anyone else in the world for cutting and machine vision technology, but in Australia, lower in price because we’re selling direct.


“The biggest industry segment we work with is window furnishing, industrial and technical textiles.


“We sell a lot of ultrasonic and blade cutters locally where edge sealing and off-contact cutting is required, but the lasers are almost all sold overseas. In fact, 70 per cent of our cutters are exported, mainly to Europe and the USA.


“A great cutter we are offering for the print and sign market is the Mikron 2, a two steered quick-change tool cutter with a pen and gantry mounted camera. Normally it would cut and crease, but can do a lot of other jobs. The Mikron 2 is very reasonably priced, accurate and fast, ideal for print to cut.


“We exhibited at PacPrint last year in Melbourne. A lot of small to medium printers wanted routers. We have developed a router on the Mikron, and expanded the modular concept. That is now called the Proton, and will most certainly be at Visual Impact.


“In terms of wide format printing, we offer a very wide range of different wide format cutters, so you get it to the size that you want.


“The Mikron and Proton have fixed sizes, but the Elektron chassis cutters can be what size you want. We tailor machines for the size of work that people are doing.”
