SteelTrak

Cutting and finishing the toughest materials in a single action.

The SteelTrak gives you the flexibility to cut anything from PVC foamboard to steel composite panels. It’s more accurate, consistent, and reliable than any other machine on the market. In a single movement, you can slice easily through the toughest materials to leave a smooth edge with no need for extra finishing. Its unique features will speed up your production, whilst guaranteeing a perfect cut every time. The SteelTrak is the essential tool for a high-volume production unit.

Features:

Perfect cut every time:

To ensure precision accuracy, the SteelTrak’s unique pressure-sensitive clamp can be first applied lightly to allow for fine adjustments, before the pressure is increased for a firm hold. The clamp is designed to protect delicate boards and printed surfaces. The sightline strip helps you achieve exact alignment and all the blades cut along the same line.

Cut steel and aluminium composite safely and accurately:

The newly developed SteelTrak C2 composite cutting head will cut steel composite panel, e.g Multishield and aluminium composite panel, e.g DiBond, in a single pass without creating dangerous sparks or dust. The new cutting head significantly reduces any curvature on the cut material to facilitate successful flat-bed printing and minimise waste. There is no need for extra edge finishing, so productivity is increased, and safety guaranteed.

Note: The SteelTrak is now supplied with the new SteelTrak C2 composite cutting head as standard. Existing SteelTrak users can purchase an upgrade from their Keencut dealer.

Saves time and money:

In a high production environment, repeatable accurate cutting reduces waste and increases productivity. A pair of left and right-hand production stops and a precise squaring arm allows users to quickly cut boards to a specific measurement. Scoring and cutting blades are permanently mounted for instant use and cut along the same line. With the SteelTrak, there is no need for additional tools or finishing products.

Cut and finish large sheet materials in one pass:

For those who need to cut larger sheet materials, the ST250 is the perfect choice. It will cut and finish 2.4m x 1.2m (8’ x 4’) sheet materials in one pass. Both the ST210 and the ST250 are fitted with an extendable arm to allow easy reach to the top of the machine.

Space saving and silent:

The upright structure and wall mounting feature saves workshop space. The design uses your body weight to minimise the effort needed to cut tough materials. There is no noise and no need for electric power and the upright design and the low friction bearing system combined together reduces user fatigue.

Sign trays and much more:

With the addition of the optional V-groove tool, the SteelTrak creates perfect sign trays, self-standing displays, boxes and exhibition stands. The V-groove tool fits directly onto the SteelTrak cutting head and is ready for action in seconds.

Five Year Guarantee:

By manufacturing in-house, with only the highest quality materials, Keencut can guarantee that the SteelTrak will provide reliable long-lasting and accurate service. All Keencut products are offered with a comprehensive five year guarantee. Register your product to activate your guarantee and enjoy reliability.

Reviews:

"...it feels like cutting butter when going through tough materials"

“We chose the SteelTrak because it was the best machine for quick cuts and fine finishing. It is very light in use and, I must say, it feels like cutting butter when going through tough materials. It’s a great product!”

Bruce Lee of Still Creek Press (Canada)


"We were drawn to these products based on their quality compared to others available in the marketplace"

“We purchased both a SteelTrak and an Evolution E2 several years ago. We use both machines primarily to cut corrugated and lightweight 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 that 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.”

Gary Nelson of Rand-Whitney (USA)


"...one of those pieces of equipment that, once you have one, you say, how did we manage before we had this"

“We are very satisfied with the SteelTrak 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.”

Colin Short of Humphrey Signs (Wales)


"the Keencut SteelTrak 210cm is a fantastic tool."

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, why do I not 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 fantastic tool.”

Cornelius Brunott of Editions Brunott (Switzerland)
