What will you be using to cut/rout the coroplast? If you try to use the router, it will shred and melt.
We fought with cutting foam core and coroplast on our CNC for years.
Finally, this year, we added an oscillating tangential cutter. It cuts almost every "soft" material perfectly.
We print the...
We cut ACM with a coated aluminum 1/8" upcut bit. 18000rpm and 150 ipm. One pass with slope insert.
Too slow and the plastic melts.
If you are talking about Alumalite, that's a different story. We use

Amana Tool 51404-K Spektra Coated SC Spiral O Single Flute, Plastic Cutting 1/4 D x 3/4 CH x 1/4 SHK x 2 Inch Long Up-Cut CNC Router Bit with Mirror Finish
It appears you are going too slow and building up too much heat that melts the acrylic.
We cut straight through 1/4" running at...
We do it by printing a mark off the image that is the "0,0" and then print another mark off the print in the opposite corner and note that position.
We have a laser pointer that mounts in the spindle. Bring the CNC to 0,0, set the work piece, bring the cnc to the opposite mark, set the piece...
Good Morning Folks,
I was asked to quote a custom cut floor graphic approx. 24"x 24" printed on clear vinyl and laminated.
They want quantities quoted up to 1000. It would take us FOREVER to do this.
Any suggestions who could do this for us?
We have the Vanguard 4x8 flatbed for two years now and have been very happy with it. Good print quality, the ability to add more heads if business really takes off and the LED lamps sold us over the Oce. As with all these printers, daily maintenance is the key to success.
We found that the lines from the pumps were clogged on our flatbed. Also found buildup and clogs in the sub tanks above the heads. It's messy, but you can use flush, disconnect both ends and flush it out.
We use o-flute aluminum bits from Onsrud or Amana and they work great. We climb cut and run at 18K at about 100 in/min.
If you are experiencing the chips getting "welded" to the bit you are probably going too slow and building up too much heat.
