SteelTraK

Keencut STEELTRAK has been designed and built by Keencut engineers to enable sign makers to easily meet the challenge of processing increasingly complex materials used in the modern sign industry. Cutting without noise or airborne debris the SteelTraK can be installed at any point in the production process without compromising valuable artwork or equipment.

Building on the huge success of the all-purpose Keencut Excalibur, and recognising the increasing demands of thicker, tougher sign materials, the SteelTraK is strong, versatile, safe and easy to use. Virtually maintenance free and built to last almost indefinitely in the toughest working conditions the SteelTraK is now a piece of essential equipment in sign making workshops in over 70 countries world-wide.

The SteelTraK 250. With an impressive cutting capacity of 250cm (8ft) operators can cut full-sized panels with ease and with three model sizes 165cm, 210cm and 250cm (65”, 82” and 96”) there is now a SteelTraK to suit almost every signmaking operation. 

LATEST ADDITION TO THE STEELTRAK RANGE: The SteelTraK 250. With an impressive cutting capacity of 2.5m (8ft) users can cut full-sized panels with ease.

From: Gary Nelson of: Rand-Whitney

We purchased both a SteelTrak and an Evolution E2 from Foster (Keencut’s main US distributor) several years ago. We use both machines primarily to cut corrugated and light weight signage materials either for pre-cutting (before printing) or post cutting (final trimming). We were drawn to these products based on their quality compared to others available in the market place and are very satisfied with the products mainly because they are very easy to use. In addition, they are a safe alternative which protects employees from unnecessary risks associated with hand cutting of print media. Worker safety is a major objective in our company and these products support this well.

From: Colin Short of: Humphrey Signs

'We are very satisfied with the SteelTrack cutter. It is of sturdy construction and wasn't too taxing to assemble. It has allowed us to make use of our off-cuts of Dibond which is a big saving and also cuts down on waste. It is also a very quick method of cutting sign materials such as Dibond and Foamex. It is one of those pieces of equipment that, once you have one, you say, "how did we manage before we had this".'

From: Cornelis Brunott of: Editions Brunott

'Right from the day I started using my KEENCUT SteelTraK 210cm, I am so satisfied with this piece of equipment that I often said to myself, do let KeenCut know. But as with so many things, we all are very quick in complaining and forget to compliment, but not this time, the KEENCUT SteelTraK 210cm is a fantastique tool, best regards, Cornelis Brunott.'

"The addition of Keencut products to our one-stop digital and screen printing shop has made a huge impact. The SteelTraK is easy-to-use and cuts signs perfectly every time. Its wall-mounted option saves us space as well. We started with an Excalibur, later adding the SteelTraK to our production line, making us that much more efficient."
