The CHALLENGER is a high capacity contour cutting system with vertical cutting orientation to cut the block in one pass from the bottom to the top.

The CHALLENGER comes with a special block support system to allow loading of blocks over the wires. The vertical contour cutting station allows cutting of contours from bottom to the top of the block and ensures fast production cycle and optimum material utilization.

For shapes, which are longer than block width, the machine can be equipped with an additional horizontal cutting frame in order to cut the block through it´s length.
