The Modular Digital Cutting System.

The Blackman & White Digital Cutting System is one of the most flexible and configurable on the market. Manufactured in the UK to the most exacting engineering standards, the Blackman & White Genesis V is the benchmark for flatbed digital cutting systems.

The Modular Concept

The Blackman & White Genesis V is modular in many ways, and not only in terms of construction, basic and optional equipment. It is equally modular as integral component of your production department. Genesis V is capable of adapting seamlessly to changes in your cutting requirements. The benefits to you: knowing that your ROI is guaranteed – now and in the future.

With the Blackman & White Genesis V, Module and tool changes are quick and easy, keeping change-over times to a minimum. In applications that require processing pre-printed graphics, the Tiger camera system ensures perfect registration every time.

Wide Range of Tools and Options

The Blackman & White Genesis V has a comprehensive range of tools and accessories, and can be configured for cutting the widest range of media and materials. With a wide range of tools to choose from, Genesis-V is able to process the ever growing range of substrates available. Supporting Knife, Laser and Router tooling, the Genesis-V is the most versatile cutting system available on the market today.

From standard cutting and creasing tools, through to specialist V-Cut tools and oscillating cutters, there is a solution to your cutting needs. For full details on the range of tools available, please see the tools section at the bottom of this page.

    Bespoke table sizes are also available, Blackman and White can manufacture almost any size table required.

    Conveyor extension tables are also available on any size table offering a more productive solution with the ability to roll on finished work out of the cutting area of the table and allowing the table to continue cutting whilst the previously finished work is removed from the table.

  • Router

    The high-speed Router is designed specifically for volume processing of rigid materials which require contouring, pocketing and grooving.

    The spindle can be used in conjunction with the optical camera for the routing of printed materials such as Aluminium Composite Panels and Foam PVC boards. 2.5 KW Router


    • 2.5 KW spindle
    • Water cooled
    • Maximum rotational speed – 60,000 RPM
    • 6 mm router bit shank
    • Quick release tool ejection system
    • Variable speed control
    • Integrated dust extraction system




    Knives and blades manufactured from steel or tungsten carbide, supported in machine specific tool holders, is the system used for cutting on all Blackman & White machines.


    Electric Oscillating Knife

    Electric Oscillating Knife - Motorised cutting tool with an oscillating speed of 12,000 RPM, and a cutting stroke of 0.7mm.  Depending on the material the tool supports a wide range of blades for cutting complex shapes.

    Air Oscillating Knife

    Air Oscillating Knife – Pneumatically poweredtool with an oscillatingspeed of 9,000

    RPM and cutting stroke of 8mm. For accurate cutting of materials which require a larger cutting stroke such as foams and rubbers.


    Electric Rotary Wheel Tool – With a rotational speed of 12,000 RPM, its primary use is for the clean cutting of fabrics and textiles. The electrically powered tool holds both decagonal and round carbide cutting blades.

    Drag Knife Thru Cut

    Thru Cut Knife – Drag knife tool designed for cutting materials in a single or multiple pass.  It is designed to hold single and double edge carbide blades to maximise the range of materials that can be cut with one tool.

    45 Degree V Cut

    V Cut Tool – For angle cutting of foamboard and recycled fibreboard where folding is required. Printed Point of Sale display structures such as literature racks, shelves and stands are manufactured with the use of angled cutting.
