An innovative collaboration between Northants-based FTC UK and American manufacturer Safety Speed has resulted in an international award-winning large format cutter.

Safety Speed used FTC UK’s Trimalco cutter as an integral part of its new SSC165H Panel Saw/Dust Free Cutter.

The new machine was awarded the Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) Product of the Year Award in the Finishing Equipment Category at the SGIA Expo held in Las Vegas, Nevada in October.

FTC UK founder Alex McLean, who has 27 years’ experience in the industry, explained that the work with Safety Speed, another established cutting specialist, was an exciting project.

He said: “Safety Speed has an excellent reputation in the sign and graphics industry as a manufacturer of panel saws, panel routers, sanders and edgebanders, and we were delighted to link with them to customise our cutter to meet their needs.”

The new SSC165H was developed as a vertical panel saw and substrate cutter all in one, offering an affordable multi-function cutting solution. The machine combines a dust free cutter with a panel saw enabling signmakers to cut just about any common signmakingmaterial currently available.
