Cutting to grooving in seconds. Cuts man-hours, too.

Cut down production time and man-hours with the only 2-in-1 vertical panel saw that can both cut and groove. Change the blade mode with the flip of a switch allowing for one-man operation while maintaining precision depth control for ACM panel bending. It can also switch from vertical cross-cut to horizontal rip-cut with the pull of a lever. There’s no need for set up, fixturing, nor continuously fly-cutting spoilboards. Plus, with circular grooving blades that are 5X faster and more accurate than CNC routers, you can free up your router for specialized shape cutting. The Duo is no compromise – it’s a fully featured panel saw and groover in one compact footprint. The Hendrick VSA ACM Duo can cut aluminum composite material, wood, plastics, melamine, and most importantly, expenses.

Meet the 2-in-1 Advantage

Free up floor space while saving time and money with this hybrid machine. Change from cutting to grooving with the flip of a switch. Your ACM panel remains stationary during both, maximizing accuracy while minimizing production time and material handling. You don’t even need to use a CNC or hand router.

Save time with one-man dual operation, using circular grooving blades which are more than 5X faster than CNC routing. Save even more man-hours with the Duo’s powerful built-in dust extraction, and eliminate potential scratching on ACM panels’ finish.

The Hendrick VSA ACM Duo isn’t just fast – it’s incredibly accurate at those speeds. Maintain precise depth-control and consistent groove quality, eliminating the need to constantly fly-cut your CNC router spoilboards. The VSA Duo’s blade options cover angle possibilities from sharp corners to 50°. Now your CNC router is free for cutting the developed shapes it was originally designed for.

Stay on the cutting edge without being locked into upsells. The VSA Duo is delivered out of the box with features that are only available as “custom” from competing machines. Get digital positioning readouts in inch and metric. Enjoy smooth transverse motion thanks to a counter-balanced head and precision bearings. Switch from vertical cross-cutting and grooving to horizontal rip-cutting and grooving with a single lever. Save your operators strain with a fold-out mid-level shelf for small part fabrication while standing erect.

Not only does the VSA Duo cost less while performing the function of multiple machines, it also reduces man-hours while increasing productivity.
