Guaranteed accuracy

The Evolution3 is the most accurate cutter of its type on the market and is guaranteed to cut within 0.2mm (0.008″) of a straight line for the length of the cut. The in-built ultra-precision accuracy combined with the perfect alignment, made possible using the sightline strip, means every butt-jointed panel will join seamlessly. This ultra-precision accuracy will save you time and money with less waste and fewer mistakes.

Total stability

The self-adjusting track roller system fitted to the QuikSwap tool heads provides a strong and smooth movement up and down the length of the cutter bar, with zero sideways movement to ensure a perfect straight line. This, coupled with rigid blade clamping gives perfect blade control and spot-on accuracy, so less wastage and mistakes. On the FreeHand, the underside of the cutter bar has two silicone strips that will grip to the material surface preventing any chance of it slipping.

Simple to use

The ease of use makes it possible for even first time users to cut confidently and accurately with the Evolution3 FreeHand. The sightline strip guides you to achieve perfect accuracy and the heavy base and solid structure create a stable cutting platform.
