Polar recently launched its new high-speed cutter, WiMotion. Polar calls it a blend of the words wireless and motion. WiMotion is a interlinked knocking block allows positioning the backgauge in an ergonomic way.
While the operator is locking the material with the knocking block he or she can move the backgauge forward or backward using two keys on the knocking block. This ensures that the material being cut will be locked against the backgauge throughout the backgauge movement. Up to now the operator had to press the material stack against the backgauge with the knocking block while moving the backgauge to the right direction.
