Excalibur 5000

 

Keencut EXCALIBUR 5000 is a full function vertical cutting machine featuring two cutting heads combining to provide four cutting tools mounted for instant selection. Excalibur’s integral counterbalance ensures an easy glide cutting action and suspends the cutting head to enable sheet materials to be loaded quickly with minimum effort and lost time. 

Keencut Excalibur has been continually upgraded since its introduction in 1996. A rigid clamping system, set & forget squaring mechanism and quick set production stops all combine for fast and accurate one-off and production cutting.

Stronger and superior to any other manual cutting system on the market, apart from Keencut’s own SteelTraK, Excalibur 5000 is the ideal choice for Picture Framers and Designers with glass, acrylic, mountboard and MDF cutting applications. 

Where heavier duty applications face the user the SteelTraK is the answer. The extra high performance and unique free-running ball-bearing mechanism of the SteelTraK makes it the only manual cutter capable of cutting 4mm Aluminium Composite (DiBond) without excessive stress on the operator or machine.  

The Excalibur 5000 is available in two sizes with a cutting capacity of 122cm & 163cm (48” & 62”) Keencut Excalibur 5000 is equipped to cut Glass 6mm – PVC Foamboard 13mm – Foamcore 13mm- Cardboard – Acrylic (Plexi) 6mm– Xanita 13mm -  Polycarbonate, PET G even MDF 4mm - and much more without noise or airborne dust or debris.
