Abstract. Flexibility and high production volumes are very important requirements in modern production lines. In most industrial processes, in order to reach high production volumes, the items are rarely stopped into a production line and all the machining processes are executed by synchronising the tools to the moving material web. "Flying saw" and "cross cutter" are techniques widely used in these contexts to increase productivity but usually they are studied from a control point of view.

This work highlights the kinematic and dynamic synthesis of the general framework of a flying machining device with the emphasis on the driving system chosen and the design parameter definition, in order to guarantee the required performance in terms of flexibility and high production volumes. The paper develops and applies a flexibility oriented design to an horizontal wrapping machine.
