More about the G5.1

The G5.1 is a lightweight (only 16lbs), single-tube machine using our custom extrusion, combining exceptionally strong mechanical structure and guides for the head.

The G5.1 power and electrical components snap along the back of the machine.  This makes the components easy to service, replaceable, and quick to customize.

“I wanted to find a comparable alternative for the majority of demand that could be easily relocated to support changing curricular needs. Aside from the benefit of new types of cutting processes such as creasing, this machine is also a cost effective solution since it does not require a dedicated exhaust system.” Parsons - Mark Betchel
