At the local trade fair Druck+Form in Sinsheim, POLAR presented its new-style high-speed cutter for the first time. With the machine facelift, operators can now enjoy the benefits of a contemporary cockpit design. One outstanding feature is the innovative touchscreen, to which the "HD" extension to the machine designation refers. This stands for high definition and clearly indicates what users can expect.
The industry is now catching up on what is already standard for smartphones and tablets. The new touch display generation is hallmarked in particular by its brilliance. With its touch-responsive activation, the new display permits even more accurate and intuitive operation. Customized operator calibration of the display is also no longer necessary. In addition, the new "HD display" is much more resistant to scratches and mechanical wear. POLAR is the first cutting-machine manufacturer in the world to introduce this technology on its machines. The new operating panel will be used for the high-speed cutter models N PLUS, N PRO HD and N AT HD.
But not only the display is new. All high-speed cutter models from 78 to 176 now also have a new look. The revamp was focused on the front view of the machine. With its uniform color on the front plate, the light barriers and the front of the machine table, operators are given a cockpit-style environment. An ergonomic hand rest is also provided for the operator below the new HD touchscreen. Last but not least the machine has a newly designed foot pedal.
