Yup. Used to have to do this on ultraboard, aluminum mounted to foam.Interesting. I'm not a CNC guy (I only use an EGX on occasion for ADA), but could you run it with multiple passes using 2 different bits -- 1 for acrylic, and 1 for aluminum?
Absolutely an option we’re considering if needed. We have a Zund with an ARC. Thanks for your reply!Interesting. I'm not a CNC guy (I only use an EGX on occasion for ADA), but could you run it with multiple passes using 2 different bits -- 1 for acrylic, and 1 for aluminum?
Agreed. We are cutting acrylic side up (this is a must for production) how do we avoid the second ACM bit’s pass ruining the nice acrylic edge?your not going to get good results using 1 bit and trying to do it all. you really need to cut the top layer with the correct bit then cut the bottom layer with the correct bit for that. Its a pain but that would be the only way to not kill your bits.
It’s Zund’s 1kw spindle.Yup. Used to have to do this on ultraboard, aluminum mounted to foam.
I'm starting to think these 'digital cutters' really aren't built to handle acm, seeing as how they dull bits so fast. Perhaps pushing a bigger spindle around would help. How big (HP or KW) is the spindle on this thing?
Thanks! I will reach out!What about contacting a place like Kennametal?
I know they're geared toward industrial CNC work, but they make tooling that can survive titanium, inconel and other hard to machine exotics.
Recommending tooling for an acrylic and ACM sandwich should be a walk in the park for them.
Never know until you ask.
Just curious, what is the type of acrylic (manufacturer and model), and is the ACM actual Dibond or another type (i.e. Maxmetal, E-Panel, Alupanel)? Second thought, are you using two different layers with two different cutting parameters in ZCC?Hey team. Wondering if anyone has any tooling they’d recommend for cutting 3mm or 6mm acrylic that been mounted to 3mm dibond. We are running a zund g3. This combo seems to burn through bits like crazy.
