G5.3 Series Plotter/Cutter
The Carlson Design G5.3 won the IFAI 2012 Show Stopper for New Equipment. The G5.3 was designed to cut ultra-wide fabrics up to 174 inches. Its 4”x4″ aluminum box-beam frame is light and strong to accommodate the extra width, and the G5.3 uses larger Nema 34 motors with 4x more torque than those on the 5.1/5.2 to handle the increased loads. To keep the chassis light and easy to service, the G5.3 has a powerful off-board power supply and a slide-out cassette, allowing servicing of internal components with the chassis in place. The X Drive plates feature extra load wheels, synchronized motors, and stretched length to prevent racking. The stiffer Y rail allows the G5.3 to utilize a larger Y and Z motor along with custom cutting tools.
Common Applications Include:
tensions structures, awnings, window blinds, inflatables, truck tarps, and more.
