The unique sub-surface monorail bearing system and twin cutting wheels is truley in a class of its own.  There is no overhead guide mechanism to obscure the cut line and the mechanism cannot distort under heavy cutting pressure.  The two tungsten steel cutting wheels give unrivaled performance and long life with two way cutting.

The Foster Keencut ARC is capable of cutting the thinnest tissue and film, flexible sheet materials, thin cardboard or chip board, aluminum plates up to .004, plastics and paper- cleanly, safely and precisely.  Two clamp rollers provide secure double clamping during cutting with up to double the gripping effectiveness of other rotary cutters.
