Re: using barcode scanner to perform functions

Alain - Since most USB barcode scanners work as "keyboard wedges" - they basically read the barcode and stuffs the alphanumeric characters into the Windows keyboard "stream" or buffer. You should check your barcode scanners documentation to see how you can format special barcodes...

Re: The surface knife doesnt recognize wasteboard thickness

Kim - Your generation of THM control does not automatically incorporate the WASTEBOARD thickness into the DAYLIGHT adjustments. That generation of THM control also does not have the built-in FLYCUT function found on the newer machines. That machine is running X-SURF provided by CNC Automation to Can...

Re: Colored symbols on labels

Here is a similar label type for the DYMOs using the original LETTER+LETTER combination to designate cabinet 'number'. Replaces the SYMBOL.

Supports cabinet numbering from 'AA' to 'ZZ' (676 cabinets). Available with and without RECUT barcode.

Happy 4th!

Re: sheet yield incorrect

Not really a "useless" number to know, but perhaps a future release could indicate "Yield with Off-Falls" and "Yield without Off-Falls"?

Re: Cutting into adjacent parts

Rob, Gouges caused by angle parts are really a factor based on where the intersection of the two edges projects to. If the projection leads to the exterior of the sheet or to a waste area, then you would never notice. The projection is due to the machine extrapolating the offset of the two edges to ...

Re: DXF pocket behavior

Stuart, I have not checked how you are doing it yet, but I usually advise our clients the following when it comes to Layered DXFs... CIRCLES – aka closed arcs - When used on a DRILL layer (a “hole”) should be a one-part entity. When used on a POCKET layer, it must be broken into at min two pieces (2...

Re: Colored symbols on labels

Nice option - If I am not mistaken, a 2-letter code (UPPERCASE) could allow for 676 unique cabinet identifiers. (26x26 -> AA,AB,AC,AD,...BA,BB,BC,BD,... ZA,ZB,ZC,ZD,...) In many combinations, looking at the 2-letter permutations "upside down" (inverted) would not be an issue but, depending...

Re: Hp Printers - No leaders

Just some stabs here.... Try checking the Printer Settings in the Printer Properties under Windows - particularly any "Advanced" settings. Look at things such as an "Econo" mode, "Graphics Density", "Halftoning" or other settings that could effect the "da...

Re: outline breaks mortise shoulder for blind tenon

Since it started happening more frequently, I too would think "core material adhesion" (less glue/resins holding board together).

You mentioned 16000 RPM at 600 ipm. Perhaps try increasing the RPM to 18000. Smaller bites might result in lower forces on the material.

Re: Laminate and melamin chipping

Dan, Since the RAMP LENGTH will affect the [b] ramp-in angle [/b] with different materials, you may want to increase the RAMP LENGTH for that thicker material to achieve a similar " ramp-in angle ". >> Alternatively, you could leave the RAMP LENGTH alone and set just the PRE-RAMP DEPTH dee...
