Re: Machining single side material

And to also clarify for the operator, at the machine when loading, it would say something like "load sheet good side up" or
flip OP 1st side, load good side down (or up)?

Yes, that's exactly what we would need ! If not I don't see any use for single option in my mind !

Plam is Plastic laminated. We do a lot of this. For example, Formica 7197 on one side and white backing on the other side (for the Inside of cabinet). We do everything we can to avoid flip parts !! I think the main goal for "single side" option should be to indicate to the cnc operator wic...

Machining plam on 1 1/2'' thick pressboard

I'm having bad results (chipping) on outline afert only 4-5 sheets, mostly on top of board. I'm usign Onsrud 60-181Mw at 18 000 rpm and 250-300 feed in 2 passes....Any idea what is the problem ? Is there anyway I could do an outline with variable depth at 1st pass in the same outline ? Oscillating ?...
