Contract cutter expands business by offering  
polycarbonate protective screens

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit Europe last year, many contract manufacturers including CutCut in Austria experienced drastic cuts in their waterjet cutting operations.

At one point, their daily business was virtually non-existent.

“We began exploring new product solutions, especially products that were urgently needed during the crisis,” General Manager Florian Baumann from CutCut said.

The company identified protective screens as a critical product that were required in shops and businesses offering essential supplies. Within a very short period of time, CutCut started producing polycarbonate protective screens for countertop and mobile partitions using waterjet cutting and GMA ClassicCut™ 80 garnet abrasive. In addition, their new product line includes table positioners and signages.

“Our know-how on protective enclosures and housings, coupled with our flexibility in producing a new product line enabled us to respond effectively to the market needs and turnaround our business operations,” Mr Baumann said.

“Nevertheless, our focus was to help keep our community safe.”
