Leading Automotive Interior Trim and Seating manufacturing companies continue to use SCHWABE Die Vacuum Cutting Systems for high volume parts production.

The SCHWABE Press with Vacuum Cutting System is favored over automated / digital cutting systems for the die cutting accuracy and close tolerance. 

How does the Die Vacuum System work?

Up to 40cm (10″) of tri-laminate material is positioned on top of the steel rule die.

The hood then encloses the die and material within the carrier, the cutting matrix being mounted in the hood.

A vacuum pump then expels the air from the system which draws the hood down and compresses the material to approximately 5cm (2″) in height.

The entire system is then incrementally fed through the SCHWABE hydraulic cutting press .

When the vacuum is turned off, the lay recovers to its original height and the hood is automatically lifted clear.

The components are then removed and the cycle can be repeated with a new lay of material.
