WHO IS IT FOR?
Trident is an innovative hybrid CNC production system combining heavy-duty routing with fast knife cutting for processing the broadest range of materials in all print finishing, signmaking, foam and graphics applications. Popular applications include:
GRAPHICS AND PRINT FINISHING
Cut-to-print using multiple tools for all materials
POINT OF PURCHASE
Display stands, fixtures and fittings
ALUMINIUM COMPOSITE MATERIAL
Quick Tool Change spindle for high speed cutting and grooving of ACM and similar products.
All types of 2D & 3D signs in woods, metals and plastics
2D & 3D processing with router and knife tools
WHAT MAKES IT UNIQUE?
Processing a wide range of materials requires more than one cutting head. The Trident combines three different cutting technologies to provide maximum versatility by offering a choice of routing spindle and two knives which can be either tangential, oscillating, or a combination of both.
HYBRID TRIPLE HEAD
On narrow carriage for small footprint
For fast processing of tough materials
TANGENTIAL AND OSCILLATING KNIFE TOOLS
Designed for cutting flexible and semi-rigid materials with ease
CREASING TOOL HOLDER
The Creasing Tool holder accommodates a wide range of crease wheels
HIGH GANTRY CLEARANCE
Allows processing of materials up to 120mm thickness
With the most configurable machine base in the industry, Trident provides maximum flexibility with process widths from 1250mm to 2050mm or greater and the option of virtually any length required.
No matter what your needs, we have a cutting machine for you!

HELICAL RACK & PINION WITH SERVO MOTORS
The helical rack and pinion provides high-speed performance delivering accuracy, smooth cutting and quiet running. On high-volume applications the powerful servo drives increases productivity.
PUSH BUTTON KNIFE ATTACHMENTS
The tangential knife head has multiple tool holders that are changed with a push of a button. Available tool holders include a 45deg V cutter, a Box cutter and a Creasing Wheel holder.
HIGH POWER ROUTING HEADS
High-power, high-speed, quick change routing spindles allow effortless processing of tough materials such as aluminum and acrylic. Combine with the optional Automatic Tool Changer for greater productivity.
LIVE DECK VACUUM ZONES
All Trident machines include Live Deck vacuum switching. This innovative system activates and deactivates vacuum zones according to the current position of the machine cutting head.
TOOL LENGTH SENSOR
Standard on all Trident Cutting machines is our soft touch tool tip sensor, this device automatically measures the tool length when a new cutting tools is added.
SOLID MACHINE BASE
A rigid, welded steel frame, fitted with our unique aluminium T-Slot vacuum table, creates a strong structure to support the most demanding processes.
Full machine control via the Smart Console, which includes a large colour display and hotkeys for full control of spindle, knifes, dust, vacuum & all machine functions.
We only use quality German manufactured 10Hp Becker Vacuum pumps which have a flow displacement of 590m3/h, providing longer work hold.
Choose your preferred process area from our standard range of sizes, or we can supply a custom built process area Trident to meet your sheet sizes or other requirements.
OSCILLATING KNIFE SENSOR
Automatically senses the length of the knife blade and also adjusts the knife blade angle making for perfect alignment of the blade to the direction of cut.
We offer the latest technology in efficient dust removal with a range of collection units available. Combined with our pressure foot our collection system provides outstanding performance.
The Multicam Vision System (MVS) uses registration marks on printed materials to adjust the cutting program for perfect alignment. This essential option for cut-to-print applications works with all cutting tools and materials.
Our location guides are pneumatically activated to allow fast, repeatable placement of your cutting material onto the cutting machine. Included is 3 x popup material location pins, 1 on the Y axis and 2 on the X axis.
KNIFE ATTACHMENT TOOL CHANGE
Add increased production capacity with the Knife attachment tool changer. The tool changer will automatically load the correct knifing tool or creasing attachment required for complex cur and creasing operations. No operator input required.
CHOICE OF KNIFE TOOLS
Processing of flexible and semi rigid media such as X-Board, Corrugated Cardboard, Rubber, Carpet, and other Single-ply Cloth or Fabrics all present challenges for traditional routers or knife tools. The Tridents cutting tools can slice through these materials with ease, delivering clean cut edges without fraying. Available attachments include the Sabre knife, Box Cutter, 45deg ‘V’ cutter and a Creasing Wheel.
AUTOMATIC TOOL CHANGER
Our optional “State of the Art” 7 position fully enclosed Auto-Tool Change carousel travels with the gantry and provides rapid tool change at any position along the X-axis, no need to travel to a fixed position along the machine. The Tool Change Unit is fully enclosed for operator safety and protection of the ISO30 holders. Tool shank diameters of up to 20mm.
