FLEXIBLE TRIMMING
A CUT ABOVE.

Multiple unique trimming projects create a need for flexible solutions. Our FRIMO FlexTrim machines are capable of any cutting process, allowing them to precisely and reliably meet even the most complex requirements with the smallest tolerances.

FLEXIBLE TRIMMING TECHNOLOGY OVERVIEW

Flexibly trimmed with the utmost precision

Precise cuts play an important role in the final quality of premium plastic components. Different geometries, materials, material combinations, and project requirements, such as volumes and the production environment, result in many unique project definitions. Our robot-assisted FlexTrim technologies guarantee the best solution to suit your needs.

Both simple and complex cuts can be precisely achieved, over and over again. We provide support right from the start, throughout engineering, prototyping, and the production of your tooling and equipment. In addition to our standard products, we offer custom and turnkey solutions that combine and automate various technologies and processes.
