The iECHO BK3.

Brisbane supplier Sign Essentials has been appointed Australian distributor for iECHO flatbed cutting devices and will launch the flagship iECHO BK3 digital cutting system next month at Visual Impact in Brisbane.

“The iECHO neatly fills a gap we had in our cutting range” says Sean Strange, GM of Sign Essentials.  “Our Impact CNC routers and lasers are fantastic for many cutting and engraving applications, but don’t necessarily suit every situation.  The BK3 has a great range of tooling including oscillating knives, v-cutters, drag blades, creasing tools, a router spindle and more.  When teamed up with iECHO’s camera registration system, they open up exciting possibilities.”

iECHO has a long history manufacturing flatbed cutting devices for many different industries, including garment & textile, advertising & printing, composites, packaging, bags & leather, inflatable products, membrane structure, automobile upholstery, yachts, aviation and wind power.

The iECHO BK3 high precision digital cutting system is a third-generation device that performs through cutting, kiss cutting, milling, punching, creasing and marking functions with high speed and high precision.  The camera registration system is ideal for popular print/cut operations, particularly when coupled with a UV flatbed printer.  The BK3 can be configured with one, two or three cutting heads.  Multiple tools can be interchanged between any of the heads.

Sign Essentials will release the iECHO at Visual Impact Brisbane [19th – 21st of April 2018] and will have a demonstration machine on their stand.  “Visual Impact is a great opportunity for customers to come and see the BK3 and get an understanding of what it can do for their business,” says Strange.
