Parameters you must know when using a fiber laser cutting machine

cutting 1 512x321 - Parameters you must know when using a fiber laser cutting machine

Buying a fiber laser cutting machine can be a tedious task but without working knowledge you cannot make a purchase. The most essential factor when purchasing a machine is to understand the different parameters that are used in the functioning of the machine.

If your parameters are not set according to the requirement of the material, it will directly affect the quality of tthe cutting. 

Let’s take a look at the important parameters of setting up a fiber laser cutting machine.

Auxiliary Pressure/Air Pressure

In the fiber laser cutting machine process, the role of auxiliary gas is for it to blow off slag, cool heat-affected zone, and prevent material from burning. We usually include oxygen, compressed air, nitrogen, and inert gases.

For some metallic materials and non-metallic ones (the cutting process), inert gas or compressed air is most suitable since they can prevent metal from burning. For most metals though, active gas (such as oxygen) is used in order to optimize efficiency.

Laser cutting quality is highly reliant on the purity of the gas. High-quality laser cutting requires the gas to be 95.5% pure or higher. It’s important to have a professional company handle the installation and maintenance of your gas infrastructure.

Laser Power

LASER 2 - Parameters you must know when using a fiber laser cutting machine


Fiber laser cutting machine has very specific method and set of parameters, but they all take into account the total power of the laser. For instance, one factor is the thickness – how thick is the material you want to cut.

When considering different types of lasers, thicker materials require more power. For example, 3kW can cut stainless steel up to 12mm; while 1kW can only go up to 5mm for aluminum.

However, in case you’re not able to cut through metal, you should consider getting more power. Along with this, you should also check out the cutting speeds, focal points, and gas pressure used in the machine. These parameters have to work together to give out the best results.

Type & Size of the Laser Head Nozzle

The type of nozzle and nozzle size selected in a laser head has a major impact on how your cutting will go. There are two typical types of nozzles. Single-layer nozzles use nitrogen auxiliary gas, and it is typically used to cut stainless steel, aluminum alloy, brass, etc.

Double-layer nozzles often use oxygen as their auxiliary gas and are typically used for cutting carbon steel. Make sure to check with the laser cutting machine manufacturer to see which type you need to make your work easy.

Some companies provide different types of nozzles for specific jobs like giving a ripped effect on fabrics or making holes in a thick metal sheet. It’s best for you to consult with your machine manufacturer before you buy or upgrade the nozzle on your own.

This will significantly reduce the chance of bad cuts or uncut material, many of which won’t make sense. For example, if your laser machine is cutting well when it’s in the center, it might not be cutting as well on the other side.

Focal lens & its specifics (like point, position, & length)

For best results, make sure that your laser lens is clean and focused. We recommend cleaning your lens after every use. The focal point of the laser needs to be centered in order to get quality cuts. The method of cutting varies depending on the material you’re trying to cut.

Cutting Speed

Fiber laser cutting machines use one or more high-power, high-speed lasers to cut materials such as paper and fabrics. When the speed of the laser is set too slow, the material’s shape will look drastically different than other times when it’s set too fast.

speed - Parameters you must know when using a fiber laser cutting machine


Cutting speed has an adverse effect on the cutting quality because when it’s too slow, a longer action time means that there is often a large difference between slits in the upper and lower parts of the material. As more power is used, action time gets shorter so that there is less diffusion, less heat transfer, and a smaller slit width.

Modes in Which Laser Operates

Laser machines can shoot a laser in two ways:

  • Continuous Wave mode
  • PWM.

In continuous wave mode, the laser continuously shoots out laser. So, you can think of a stream of water. In pulse mode, instead of shooting out the laser persistently, you shoot out the laser in great quantities at once. It feels like firing a shotgun. Continuous Wave mode is good for cutting straight lines and sharp corners and Pulse Wave mode is good for cutting small holes.

Type of Material You are Cutting

When cutting material, there are factors such as material properties that are also important when deciding how to set cutting parameters. It’s good to research what types of materials you’re going to cut and how they react with laser and heat.

Usually, metals with low silicon levels can be cut easily with lasers and high silicon levels are harder to cut. The presence of carbon (such as in carbon steel) makes it more difficult to cut through the material with a laser.

Level of Complexity of Design

When designing with a laser cutter, the shape of your design is something to consider. A simple design does not have any complex curves or small holes in it. Complicated designs, on the other hand, require different parameters and different equipment (like maybe a different nozzle type).

Figuring out all these necessary specifications for complicated designs can be tricky but it is an important part of the process. If you’re dealing with a design with a lot of curves, the cutting speed will be low to get the best cuts.


While a fiber laser cutting machine has helped in the manufacturing process and reduced labor cost, learning how to use it is equally important. One wrong setting in the parameters can cause major problems for the machine.

It is important to read the user guide for the machines before working with them which is why you should make your purchase from OMNI CNC. We offer guides and detailed videos about the machines to help you learn them quickly.

So, here are a few myths that you can understand and implement while next working with the machine:

49869327956 55c84b0a3e z - What Can You Do During Your "Stay Home" Period?

2.1 The formula of “Set and forget”

Despite making significant advancement in technology, a CNC machine does not ensure churning out high-quality results once you run a part of CNC. The tools break, inserts get to wear down, and parts get shifted. Irrespective of the machine’s proficiency, the operator has to intervene in the process for the maintenance of the product’s quality and machine’s life.

2.2 It is expensive to work on a CNC machine

While designing a closet, there are three things that you should not avoid.

a. Keep an Eye on the Designs and Patterns

As per the recent trends, designers prefer neutral to bold colors, attractive patterns, and designs to keep an eye on the runway. Apart from the color and patterns, designers also focus on intricacies such as inlays, cornices, moldings, and materials used for making closets. CNC machine cut closets components with perfection and precision. Whether you require CNC machines for short or long-run production, OMNI CNC machines stand the test of time in performance, labor savings, and production.

b. Customize Closets for your Client

A closet is not only an enclosed storage space for storing particulars rather it is a place where you can maximize and organize the storage space in every room. Every person wants its wardrobe or closet to be spacious wherein you can keep particulars according to the activities such as jogging clothes to business attire from shoes to jewelry, vest, etc. The designers should comprehend the requirements of the customers and keep up with the design. Also, the CNC machine uses designing software that enables designers to keep up with the latest trends and help to improve the ways that clients are actively looking for.

One of the important goals of this personalization is to ensure that the client can keep the closet organized and functional.

c. Embrace Technology

With the changing trends, technology also changes and so do the expectations of clients. The designs include the latest devices, such as soft hardware for heavy doors, innovative drawer slides, advanced cabinet locks, pop-up power decks, exclusive lights, and stylish mirrors. Designers design every nook or cranny of the closet and ensure that they give 100% satisfaction to customers.

2. Advanced Technology used for Manufacturing Closets

Many manufacturing companies make use of advanced technology to improve the processes and products that are within the supply chain. When talking about advanced manufacturing technology, it means the spectrum of a highly advanced CNC machine is discussed. The fabrication process is automated, so you do not have to worry about the negligence of the workers. The operation time involved is very less and this high tech machine can cut different parts of the product in different shapes and sizes.

CNC machining delivers superior accuracy, precision, and speed for high quantities of products, and that makes it the right choice in most situations. Manufacturing companies gain an edge through efficiency, consistency, precision, and accuracy. CNC routing machine transforms the raw material to a customized and easily tackle complex decorative engraving on a closet panel.

3. Application of the CNC Routing Machine

These days CNC machines are found in almost all industries, from a small scale to big companies. There is hardly any facet of manufacturing that is left untouched by the CNC machine. Owing to the extensive need for the CNC machines in various industries, there is a great surge in the demand of the CNC programmers. To cope with this difference, training on the operations and programming of the CNC machine should be given so that people can take advantage of the technology.

CAD/CAM Applications

CNC machines use software CAD Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) to automate the manufacturing processes. While CAD focuses on the design of the product, CAM focuses on the manufacturing of the product as per the design. Once the CAD model is imported into CAM, the CNC machine starts transforming the raw material and gives it definite shape through different actions like cutting, engraving, boring, and drilling.

CAD/CAM applications are used to both design a product and program manufacturing processes, specifically, CNC machining. CAM software (US site) uses the models and assemblies created in CAD software to generate tool paths that drive machine tools to turn designs into physical parts. CAD/CAM software is used to design and manufacture prototypes, finished parts and production run.

The CAD machining process begins with the creation of a vector design allowing designers and manufacturers to cut and produce external boundaries with CAM software. CNC routing machines can cut any shape or external boundary in your drawings. The routing machine cuts the material with precision and ensures the perfect shape and size of the material cut.

The design of the CAD runs through CAM software to extract the part of curves/geometry and generate a programming code that will control the CNC machine and ensure that the tool produces the custom-designed part. These geometric codes are also known as G-code. After this, the machine ensures that the material is loaded perfectly before starting the operation. After that, the material is autoloaded by the machine and works as the G-code of CAD.

The CNC machine runs as per the program. It gives the command to the tool and move as per the instructions. The program prompts the CNC machine and guides the machine throughout the process of operation (cutting, carving, engraving, etc) to produce a custom-designed part.

4. Closet Manufacturing Companies Stay Ahead of Trends with CNC machines

Many manufacturing companies are now using CNC machines to design closets and do other woodworking tasks. Every piece of the wood can be customized with the CNC machine thereby bringing the interior of your home to life. CNC machine plays an important role in cutting, carving, and creating closets for the interior of the residential or corporate place. CNC woodcarving machine can also mass-produce and reproduce products efficiently. Carving, cutting, and engraving that were once a complicated task can be completed in lesser time than before.

CNC machine helps in designing the closet as per your requirement. The first and foremost thing that you should know even before designing a closet is how big or small you want your closet to be. It is obviously tempting to see big, spacious, and walk-in closets but organizing a closet as per your space can be a difficult task. Maximize the space as much as you can! Do not waste even an inch when planning to build a closet. Design your closet more ergonomically. CAD software beautifully designs the closet as per requirements of customer and CAM software cuts and carves the raw wood giving proper shape and size and customizing as required.

5. Design and Organize your Storage Space

Over the last few years, a noticeable improvement in technology has been witnessed. Cabinet and closet manufacturing companies have shifted to newer technologies like CNC machines for cutting and engraving materials thereby streamlining the design to the production process and eliminating the possibility of errors that can occur when translating drawings to CNC.

Upgrading and Finishing for the Closet:

After knowing what kind of door a user needs, the most critical step is to understand what type of finishing should be used on the closet door to make it look attractive. Here are a few of them tom help the user out, check them out:

Spray Frost:

For a bedroom with enormous sliding mirrored closet doors, spraying frost paint is an upgrade. One does not necessarily remove the doors, despite their outdated nature; they make the room look bigger. Further, they are a great way to check out the outfit from head to toe before leaving for anywhere.

Rather, paying a visit to a home improvement center for a can of frosted glass spray paint will work wonders for the outdated model. Using a painter’s tape or stencils to block off the portions of the mirror can be handy. Furthermore, applying light coats of spray frost and letting the spray dry between each coat helps the users to get the desired output.

Once done, the user can remove the stencil to check the updated closet door.

Faux Trim:

This is another method to upgrade a closet. Using a faux “trim,” one can complement any formal or traditional decorating of their closet.

It is one of the most uncomplicated processes. The user has just to use a painter’s tape to block off a rectangular inset on the door; after doing this, the user needs to cover the entire surface with a user’s favorite coat of paint. Once the paint is dry, the user should remove the tape just to see their closet door getting a touch of elegance.

Stain Finishes:

This is one of the most popular ways to finish in this new era of interior designing. This finish gives the closet a warm, classic look that adds a traditional atmosphere. Usually, stains are popular for solid wood doors or particularly for the wood grain. Stains are also available in multiple colors.

While purchasing, one should always look for recommendations from manufacturers to know the appropriate stain for their use. Moreover, one should make sure they get trim colors if they get stained during the process.

Paint Finishes:

Yet, it is another way to add charm to a closet and the interiors. To get a contemporary feel or to get a better match for the existing trim and the wall colors, house owners most often use this finish to get the desired result.

Homeowners most often paint their interior doors when hoping for a contemporary feel or to better match existing trim or wall colors. Many hollow-core doors often come primed with a white base coat, requiring the owner to paint that type of interior door. Check with your door manufacturer to see what finishing options they suggest for the specific door you have selected.

As mentioned earlier, a closet is entirely personal. Hence, one should design it in order of their expectations. This is the reason why this guide has been provided, and this will clear the user on which type of door one should opt for and what kind of finish should be used to get the closet ready.

Reasons Why Your CNC Router Machine Fails to Achieve Desired Performance

CNC Router

As we know that CNC machines are the most dependable, reliable and long-lasting parts of equipment for any woodworker. However, time and again, many complexities have been recorded in this durable machine. Programming complexities and due to the failure in some other components in the CNC machine have been a cause of malpractice and frustration.

Usually, there is a fact behind these issues. These small but irritating issues are compounded due to lack of attention towards the machine which can happen by either using it wrongly or poorly maintaining it.

Nevertheless, before going into the depths of the problems and their reasons; let us take a moment to understand what a CNC router machine is and how it works.

What is a CNC Router Machine?

CNC stands for Computer Numerical Control. A CNC machine is an electro-mechanical device that is used to manipulate and control the machine-shop tools and devices with the help of computer programming.

Mostly, CNC machines use a platform that allows for a computer-driven cutting tool to carve a material in all the dimensions. This, CNC machine, can be used by programming it to make precise, repeatable cuts on lowly elevated or flat wood or plastic projects. For high-level usage, a CNC machine can be used by applying it to plasma and laser cutters as well.

The recent changes in technology have led to the marketing programming methods which are used by competing for machine manufacturers. However, the G-code is still something that is the core of CNC machining.

Furthermore, because of innovation and modernization scrap is being reduced which has turned out to be a time and money saver for the companies using the CNC machine. Besides, it is also eliminating the damage to their machining centers by using simulation, verification, and optimization of software. With unique innovative ideas and features, many companies have started to supply these software packages.

What’s interesting is that besides allowing the manufacturer to replicate the machining of a new part, these software packages help in verifying the tool paths to eliminate collisions and crashing and optimize production. Apart from that, they also allow the detection of inconsistency by measuring and analyzing.

How does a CNC Machine Work?

A way to transform a normal piece of material like a block of wood into a finished product with the help of controlled material removal process is called a CNC machine. Similar to other forerunner development technology, CNC works on the digital instructions it receives from the computer-aided manufacturing or computer-aided design file.

Given digital instructions are interpreted for cutting prototype parts by the CNC machine. This practice automates the highly technical and labour-intensive task and thus, becomes a reason for an increase in productivity. When the material is critical, the prototype parts can be created by providing automated cuts. These automated cuts are a reason why the speed and accuracy of the overall process are improved.

49104120322 ee2e9ee62c c - Reasons Why Your CNC Router Machine Fails to Achieve Desired Performance

Moreover, it has quite a few similarities to 3D printing. Just like 3D printing, CNC has a computer supplied digital code that is passed onto the tool which helps in creating a finished product. Since the entire creating process is installed in a set of precisely coded directions, the process is quite faster, more efficient and less error-prone in comparison to hand-work.

Quite often these processes involve the use of different sets of multiple tools to make the solicit cut. CNC machines can combine tools into common cells from which machines can draw the required work.

Basic machines rotate in one or two axes whereas the advanced machines rotate a little more laterally in the x and y-axis and longitudinally in the z-axis and sometimes these machines rotate either in one or more than two axes.

Multi-axis machines are good enough to flip parts over automatically thus, allowing you to remove material that was below it. This process removes the need for workers to flip the stock material, hence, removing the manual intervention and increase the productive time.

Some issues that can arise while using a CNC Machine and their Solutions

Irrespective of the fact that CNC machines are fast and efficient, there is a thing about these machines which is not unerring.

However, just like other machines, this machine too can develop issues over time. Maybe it can be due to the user’s wrong usage or due to lack of maintenance. Like other tools, there are a few things that a user can do during the normal practice that can result in damaging these machines. Nonetheless, there are steps that a user can take to keep them in good shape for its smooth working.

49103445398 646e135214 b - Reasons Why Your CNC Router Machine Fails to Achieve Desired Performance

As a user, one knows that they might run into several problems that can lead to an indefinite number of issues and errors within a CNC machine. Some of these issues are more of a run-of-the-mill than the big ones. Hence, these small and tiny issues are the one which gets neglected and overlooked.

From burn marks on the finishes of the machined parts to the immobilization of different moving parts to inaccuracy in machined parts or problems occurring due to improper power supply, here are a few of these small but common problems occurring in a CNC machine.

● Poor or Improper Maintenance

● Improper Settings or Tools

● Poor or Improper Programming

● Overheating of the machine

● Inadequate skills of the worker and training

● Power supply problem

● Automatic tool changing problem

● Vibration/chatter of the machine

● Clamping/unclamping problem of chunks and fixtures

Poor or Improper Maintenance

This is a mainstream problem that is ignored quite often. Modern machines that come with constantly moving mechanical parts like CNC machine tools require regular cleaning and maintenance which can keep them running in the best possible way.

Howbeit, the lack of attention in clearing the dirt materials and other debris could become a reason for the build-up in the imprecision of the machine. Thus, it provokes failure in the machine.

49103960261 3f123a92c8 b - Reasons Why Your CNC Router Machine Fails to Achieve Desired Performance

Measure to Prevent This Problem:

The question now arises ─ how to prevent this problem?

The prevention of this problem is quite simple, the machine holders and the operators need to understand the nuances of the machine while buying this. Moreover, they need to make sure that they go through the detailing quite thoroughly, follow the detailed maintenance regime for the tools which are being used in the machine.

Also, the operator and the owner should make sure that levels of coolants or airflow, like air filters, are regularly checked. Doing this ensures that the operations continue smoothly and are uninterrupted. It is a point to note that having an overheated spindle can result in having a choked air filter in the cooling system.

Improper Settings or Tools

Picking a wrong cutting tool, quite often, might result in a work which is poor in quality and is low with regards to its material finishes. This poor quality can be experienced by the rough edges, cutter marks on the surface, burn marks or raised marks on the material’s corners and edges. Extensive usage of a tool can also result in this kind of error.

Moreover, the poor material finishes can be due to either of the bluntness in the tool which is in use or could be due to improper feed of speed ratio. Wrong feeding of such factors can also be caused by the wrong dimensions of the toll for the job at hand when things come to sizes, quality or match with the material.

Measure to Prevent This Problem:

To solve this issue, one needs to be very attentive while handling the machine and should give importance while picking up the right tool and also, while setting the material for the job in hand.

>Poor or Improper Programming

Most of the highly trailblazing equipment is controlled by CNC computers and much of the problems in the CNC machines pop-up when the programming of these machines are wrongly done. This issue may arise due to lack of knowledge of the G and M codes (which are used for the controller of the machine), by setting up the tools in a wrong manner, or the worker inputs the wrong data variables.

Measure to Prevent This Issue:

However, these issues can be resolved by providing adequate training to the new operators. The machine owners can make sure that the new operators are given proper training in different ways in which CNC machines can be programmed.

Extensive user manuals and training, operation of the machines and motion sequencing should be requisitely given to the new operators by the machine suppliers or experienced operators on the shop floor.

Overheating of the Machine

Using a CNC machine for a long duration and high volume can result in overheating. There will be instances where the CNC machine can hit a temperature of 150 degrees or more due to excessive usage. Hence, this could harm the machining which can produce poor quality work and also, could hamper the output of the machining job.

49104153107 726ede4945 b - Reasons Why Your CNC Router Machine Fails to Achieve Desired Performance

Furthermore, the variations in the rising temperature in the workshop can also play a part in CNC machine overheating. Opening doors or windows so that air/wind could come in can affect the accuracy of the work carried out by the machine tools.

Moreover, having a nice wide window where the sun can shine freely alongside a cold blowing air conditioner is good for the operators but this can affect the finished product from the machine as it can get distorted on its axis.

Also, overheating of a machine spindle could happen due to excessive use of the machine at the highest rpm. A spindle with Grease Lubrication should not be used at extensive hours for full rpm.

Measure to Prevent This Issue:

There are ways to avoid this, one can make sure that they clean all the channels and clean the dirt, soil, and material at a regular interval. Having a calendar to maintain the daily cleaning schedule of all the metal shavings as well as the liquids used during the cutting process can be quite handy in saving the machine from overheating.

To prevent overheating of a machine spindle, the operator can use a spindle with Air-Oil Lubrication or an Oil-Jet Lubrication spindle which is a better option as they have no problem in running for the longest hours.

Inadequate Skills of the Worker and Training

With the rapid increase in the usage of computers and programming, CNC machine tools need an operator who has adequate knowledge, has the skill set and is well trained to handle a different set of requirements of this machine’s programming language.

Without the right planning, organization, and programming skills the worker will be unable to fetch the required yield from these machines irrespective of them having machining skills and experience.

Measure to Prevent this issue:

To make sure that this error does not happen, the machine owner needs to make sure that they are hiring the right machine operator who is good with visualizing and is capable of designing the machining process, selects the right tool and sequences for the task and is good in writing appropriate programs.

49103456448 65e47d4e09 b - Reasons Why Your CNC Router Machine Fails to Achieve Desired Performance

Power Supply Problem

In many cases, it may happen that the CNC machine tool’s display or different parts might not work due to issues with the power supply.

49103460043 df97a888a3 b - Reasons Why Your CNC Router Machine Fails to Achieve Desired Performance

Measure to prevent this problem:

However, to rectify this, one should make sure that adequate power and voltage is supplied to the input side. One should also check whether the output or secondary side is properly working or not.

In cases where there is no power or the voltage reading turns out to be low then considering to disconnect the output wires with the power off is a good idea. Moreover, one can check the power supply using power-up and if it wants to be sure of it then it can go through the rechecking process of the output side. They can also check whether the LED on the machines are working or not, and could also have a look at the fuses.

A stable power supply is a prerequisite for working with a CNC machine. It is the foundation for trouble-free operations performed by a CNC machine tool.

Automatic Tool Changing Problem

Often, there will be a time where a user will face challenges regarding the automatic tool changer in your CNC machine’s tool.

49103972771 2b6ed36196 b - Reasons Why Your CNC Router Machine Fails to Achieve Desired Performance

Prevention Methods:

Nevertheless, these minor issues can be dealt with by knowing about every step of the tool changing process and how to troubleshoot the machine by diagnosing what went wrong.

Moreover, one should also keep a check on the base, the gripper arm, tool holder, support arm and tool magazines working and ensure that they are running smoothly.

Also, they should examine the action of swiveling and mechanical arm action for their proper working. One must regularly clean the chips and coolant of the automatic tool changer and tool holder.

49103976581 08ea5fb32c b - Reasons Why Your CNC Router Machine Fails to Achieve Desired Performance

Vibration/Chatter of the Machine

If the CNC machine vibrates while working then there is a significant possibility that this can reduce the life of the tool, affect its durability and will undermine the quality of the machined part. This can be observed by listening to the noise generated by the machine.

49103979031 8b5acffaf1 b - Reasons Why Your CNC Router Machine Fails to Achieve Desired Performance

Prevent This issue:

To solve this issue, the operator needs to diagnose the workpiece chatter or the tool chatter. They can also alter the RPM of the machine. By doing so, they ensure that the frequencies of the machining process do not resonate with the material frequency.

Clamping/Unclamping Problem of Chunks and Fixtures

This can be a considerable issue when the piece required to be worked upon cannot be securely gripped by the chunk or continually shifts or vibrates in the process.

Measures to Prevent this issue:

This can be resolved by:

● Checking whether the parts are correctly positioned for a secure clamp.

● One should also check the hydraulic pump and its pressure.

● If the chuck is working based on the MDI M-code command.

● Check whether or not the lubricant is adequately used for gripping the material.

● Avoid the point gripping instead should opt for wider surface gripping.

● Must check whether there is dirt or not, cause dirt and debris to can play a part in malfunctioning of the machine.

● Check for the working output of solenoid. If the output is working then a broken wire at the connector could be a problem.

● If the chuck does not open/close, check to see if the footswitch is working – see if the contacts are still working and that the wires are not broken.

● Look for whether the drawtube connecting the hydraulic cylinder and the chunk is working or not.

How To Choose The Right CNC Bits?

Moving on from the errors and solutions, the question now stands here is, how one can choose the right CNC bits?

As discussed above, CNC is solely responsible to provide good quality to the finished work; hence, taking a risk in choosing the CNC bits could turn out to be risky. Here are a few ways in which a right CNC bit can be chosen:

Application and Material

The material under the cutter has a lot to do with the type of CNC bit an operator needs. Probably, the woodworker might be working with wood or is manufacturing a large amount of plastic or aluminium; for these materials, the CNC router is required.

Picking the wrong bit for the chosen material can hamper the processing of the machine and can destroy the bit and the machine. Some materials require the use of multiple CNC bit types but it is best to use just one type.

When melamine or plywood is placed under the cutter, it is advisable to use compression bits to avoid chipping or tearing of the material.

If the operator is a new entrant in the world of CNC routing then they should prefer for a multi-purpose CNC bit, which uses two-flute spiral bits. The versatile bits can be used on a variety of materials.

Speed and Finish

While making smooth cuts is a priority, there are some projects which demand a quick finish. Speed and accuracy are the most important consideration while picking the type of bit for processing.

For a speedy finish, one must know that feeds and speed depend on a few factors.

● Horsepower of the spindle

● Panels held down by clamps or vacuum

● Stability of CNC machine

● Condition of collet

One should gradually increase the speed of the cutting rate as instantly cutting at high rate makes difficult to gauge the optimal speed.

It is crucial to keep in mind that chips that are too large might break a router bit. Whereas, chips that are too small can turn your waste to powder and dull the bit.

When things come to finishing, the primary goal is to make quality cuts. The more flutes a bit contains, the higher the quality of work the machine gives.

Daily Needs of a CNC Machine:

Apart from choosing the right CNC bit, the operator should understand that the machine also has its daily needs to process the work smoothly. Here are a few daily needs of the routing machine and the operator must follow these needs:

1. Keep the machine clean: After the end of every shift, check the rack, ball screws and linear bearings, clean them if there are any chips surrounding the sensors.

2. Change worn tooling: Change the damaged or worn collets, cover nuts and tools as they can affect your cut quality.

3. Keep a check on the machine: Look for broken parts that affect can the machine’s output or safety of the employees.

4. Close the machine at EOD: Avoid using the CNC machine all year long, as it can get extremely hot. Turning off the machine can reduce the chance of burning the connectors and keep the employees safe from unexpected power surges.

5. Delete old files: Efficiency of the machine should be a top priority of the owner. Hence they should make sure that they delete the old files from the system and keep a back-up in an external file.

6. Timely greasing of the bearings: It’s recommended to oil the bearings at the end of every shift and grease them appropriately.

7. Replace the vacuum pump oil: One should change the vacuum pump oil after every 20,000 hours of use.

Tips for your Sign Shop Equipment Line

The increasing advancements in technology encouraged many sign shops to improve their business activities and pushed signs into a completely new era. Technology allowed sign companies to push to the new realm of sign advertising that was not possible previously. Sign shops continually adapt newer technology to meet the demands of the new marketing space.

With this shift in technology, many companies are looking to change the logos of their company and create new and modern signage for them. Such change provides opportunities to signage companies to experiment with the change. Signage for a shop, firm or big offices is the most exciting part of the process. The signage designing process yields multiple opinions when it is being done and the best reactions when it is done.

Therefore, it becomes very important to understand the steps involved in the designing of a commercial sign project, the fabrication required and, most importantly, the process of installment which determines the success of the project.

However, before going into the depths of one should know what signage is and why it is used.

I. Signage:

Any kind of graphic display intended to convey information to an audience is called signage. It is used for advertising, marketing, attracting customers, safety awareness, and improving sales. Signage is used to convey intended information to the audiences.

Mostly, signage is used for reasons like:

    • Promoting a brand
      Identifying a brand or organization
      Providing information regarding something
      Giving directions
      Raising safety awareness.

Usually, the same tools are required for the aforementioned types of signage. However, these tools can be more specific depending on the requirements of the project.

Although there are different ways used in the signage vinyl and digital printing are the most commonly used signage process that is followed in the market. Due to their cost-effective nature, they are one of the go-to materials for sign makers.

Sign Shoppe offers an extensive range of signage supplies including digital print vinyl, external signage systems, sign vinyl and sign making accessories. Sign shops offer bespoke signage to meet industry requirements. Let us take a look at the range of signage supplies:

i. Vinyl Signage: Vinyl is a kind of film that regulates the strength and durability of the project. For signage purposes, Vinyl is used to fulfill the needs of the market. There are two types of vinyl depending

On the material used in the project:

• Calendered Vinyl: It is chiefly used for interior decoration purposes such as advertising in business or at home. This kind of vinyl is homogenous and is, also, inferior in quality.

• Cast Vinyl: Due to its high quality and durability, it is optimal for vehicles and exteriors purposes. Thus, it is quintessential for projects that involve it is also perfect for applications on crumpled or erratic surfaces.

ii. Digital Printing Signage: The graphic displays are intended to communicate and advertise the product and services. Sign manufacturers follow standard printing methods to create intended designs and logos.

49059136581 44638a3f24 b - Tips for your Sign Shop Equipment Line

a) Purpose of Signage:

Signage is used as a way of providing information through a pictorial representation of the same. The basic purpose of signage is to promote, provide information, and (sometimes) give directions and for safety awareness. Digital signage helps in passing information in an interactive way and never fails to grab the attention of the audience.

Now that you know about signage, its purpose and the material are highlighted. It is substantial to understand the nuances of signage designing by getting in-depths of it.

b) Equipment, Tools, and Accessories that are used in the making of signage:

The choice of appropriate tools is necessary for the correct application of the chosen material. Further to choosing a material as per the need of the project, operations like small functions on vehicles are performed in a sign shop. However, there are times where the designer has to travel to the site and will be asked to carry their tools along with them. For this reason, it becomes necessary to carry all things to the place of work and have appropriate suitable accessories.

Here are basic accessories that a sign designer must carry:

c) Basic Accessories for Sign Designer

Every signage application has its own set of challenges. Despite that, some accessories are designed to make this arduous task look easy. These accessories help in bringing the best out of the material and that too with a little margin of error.

Nevertheless, squeegees and scrapers are the main tools for a designer dealing with the process of signage. Regardless of that, if a sign designer wants to fetch results that are worth calling ‘perfect’ then here is a list of a few articles that are essential when processing signage.

Let us take a look at some of the important accessories:

• Gloves: Materials are maneuvered in a way that suits the requirement of a designer. To match the needs of the designer the use of special gloves is recommended. These gloves not only protect marks coming from the dirt but also the marks on the printing material.

49059139221 9693cfca98 b - Tips for your Sign Shop Equipment Line

• Handle Magnets: Handle magnets are a must keep in a signage kit. These magnets help by easing the signage process. Not having magnets can impact the smoothness of the process of signage on rough surfaces. This is the reason why top designers endorse the use of handle magnets. Signage on vehicles becomes quite easier when a magnet is placed on them.

49059142221 5d72ea9edd c - Tips for your Sign Shop Equipment Line

• Safety knife: Another must-have article. A safety knife helps in removing the materials quickly and safely. Safety Knife is doctored to withstand the tenacity of material removing environments. Furthermore, these safety knives are easy to sanitize.

• Rivet Brush to apply the printing material: Rivet Brush is an essential element. There are multiple facets to a rivet brush apart from just applying the concerned material over rivets. A rivet brush is also a handy tool for affixing vinyl on the wrinkled and synthesized surfaces like banners with a heavy background, concrete, stucco or cinder-block. When it comes to rubbing adhesives from rivet heads then it is advised to make use of the old rivet brushes. The same goes for the functioning of the graphics removal work. Old rivet brush is very handy in graphic removal work as well.

49059147866 e1dd77e1b8 c - Tips for your Sign Shop Equipment Line

• Popping-pen: Easy to hang, a bubble popper pen is a must-have tool for a designer who is dealing with the installation of graphics or car wrapping. This is the perfect tool for the job. As mentioned, it is easy to hang as it clips in the shirt’s pocket like a “ball-point pen”. Furthermore, this pen has an ultra-sharp round tip that trackbacks just like a normal pen. This pen is used to pinhole the irritating bubbles that occur in the printed graphics or car wraps.

49059371387 4f0d79856e c - Tips for your Sign Shop Equipment Line

• Cutters: Cutters are machines that are used for trimming printing materials into many shapes or letters as per the requirement of the project. Not a very device, it is of the same size as that of a computer printer that can be connected with a cable. A cutter can make cuts in areas that are difficult to reach this, it is recommended that every sign maker should have cutters that have the best blades.

• Weeding tools: Usually, there are two models to use and that are ergonomic and comfortable pens that are used to separate the material from the surface. Graphic experts have praise for weeding tools and they also recommend for a precise finish.

• Tool bags: What are tools without a tool-bag? A tool-bag is the basic of the basic necessity for any sign designer. This helps in segregating tools from the magnets. Moreover, the tool bags offer easy access to the tools that are required by sign makers. Different pockets are used for keeping squeegees, cutters, lift the stick, cutter, handle magnet, rivet brush, gloves, and popping pen. This helps in keeping the tools in a well-structured form.

With the use of right squeegees, scrappers, accessories and an organized tool kit, a signage designer can create a useful set of tools in a kit for work.

It is necessary to make sure that the tool kit should have a clip or an adjustable belt. A tool kit is the best thing to have as it ensures that all the tools required for the signage project work are within reach. A tool kit having multiple pockets offers a whole new dimension to the kit as it allows more storage space for equipment.

To speed up the process of signage, designers should make sure that they carry a kit that can fulfill the essential requirements of the type of project that a designer decides to venture in.

Signage work requires precision and efficiency. Above mentioned are a few tips that help a designer to fetch the two principles of this artistic work.

II. Right Signs Stand Out of All!

Signs have a literal meaning and they mean something or the other. Sign shops help in meeting stakeholder’s expectations and allow them to excel in dynamic and challenging environments in which they do business. Any sign shop can get their business noticed by incorporating innovative ways to display your company’s image using the latest cutting-edge technologies. There is some important sign making tools that play an important role in creating and designing signs. Let us take a look at the same:

• Router: CNC routers give a precise cut to aluminum, acrylic, and many other materials used for creating signage. The quality of the end product produced by the CNC router has significantly improved after it started operating by a computer. Also, this type of machinery gives fabricators options in terms of shape and size.

49058640078 9ffd5eefcd b - Tips for your Sign Shop Equipment Line

• UV inkjet printer: UV inkjet printers are now used for direct-to-substrate printing. It is considered as the best to print directly on the substrate with Inkjet printer. This method gives a long-lasting finish to the end product.

Investment for your Woodworking Shop

Investment for your Woodworking Shop

When a person thinks to start a woodworking shop, it is obvious that the person will visit different forums for opinions on how to invest money for their shop.

With no shortage of opinions on the forum, these opinions will likely create confusion in the head of the person. However, the thing here is that one should know that their woodworking shop is their source of income and they should understand these things to help in prioritizing the purchase of the shop:

1. Buy instruments that are flexible in the sense that can complement other instruments.

2. Taking from the first point, flexible instruments keep the work moving.

Hence, it is important to keep these points in mind while investing. However, the point to note here is that to keep moving the work smoothly and to be flexible as per the needs of the trade, one has to be very careful with their choices in investing.

Nevertheless, in this article, here are a few tips that could help in the making of a good woodworking shop.

Shopping Strategy:

The approach should be simple and should not include buying cheap products. When a cheap product does not perform or fails badly then buying on price often costs a user more in the longer run.

The trick should always be of searching for quality tools that can be bought at pocket price. And, after buying, one should know how to unlock the maximum potential of that instrument.

The strategy should always be, irrespective of the cost, to buy basic and versatile tools before adding any kind of specialized tool.

Types of Tools to Have in the Shop:

There are a variety of tools available in the market. And having each type of these tools in a tool kit is essential for a woodworker. To sort things out, here is a list of tools and things that are essential for woodworking.

● Tools

  1. Table Saw
  2. Plane Thicknesser
  3. Woodturning lathe
  4. Router
  5. Circular Saw
  6. Random orbit sander
  7. Chisels and saws

Power Tools: Power tools make the life of a woodworker easy. Here is the description of some of them:

Table Saw: Table saw has to be the first purchase for any woodworker. Woodworking is cannot be termed completed if the table saw is missing from the list of equipment. Furthermore, the table saw serves as the focus for many tasks that could come in the future. One has to consider some space in their workshop or home for a table saw as it is quite large compared to a normal saw.

48907399521 3f3accec46 b - Investment for your Woodworking Shop

The blades of the table saw are bigger than a circular saw. They consist of a high-speed motor fixed over a flat table beneath it. The blade rises out of the table bed to adjust the depth of the cut. Table saws are pretty good when it comes to preparing identically sized pieces or making several rips cuts.

Table saws can take masonry blades and metals but the thing to keep in mind is that the design of the blade should match the motor’s round per minute.

A table saw, since it is well balanced, can deal with the cutting of various sizes of wood with efficiency and accuracy. This is the reason why it is the heart and soul of a woodworking shop. Furthermore, a woodworker considers this as the centerpiece, hence forming their arsenal around a table saw.

Plane Thicknesser

A woodworking machine which helps in planning and smoothing of large sections of timber to get the right size of wood as per the requirement of the project is called a plane thicknesser.

48906873833 022eb03890 b - Investment for your Woodworking Shop

A plane thicknesser comprises of three parts:

  1. Drum Cutting Blade
  2. Feed-in/feed-out rollers
  3. Adjustable level table

● Drum Blade: It is a metal cylinder holding blades made to rotate at high speed to plane the wood.

● Feed-in/feed-out roller: These supports are placed before and after the planer so that it can support the wooden plank when it is put in and when it goes out from the machine, thus, making the process a lot safer.

● Adjustable level table: The adjustable level table is a platform for holding the timber at a correct distance from the drum blade for trimming the thickness of the wood as per the requirement of the project.

When using the machine, it is good to consider the fact that one must not try to get the required thickness in an attempt as that can make the planner jump, tear and could give a rippled finish. Plane the timber in small amounts to get the thickness as per the requirement of the project.

Moreover, to achieve a flat, smooth and constant plane, one needs to make sure that the other side which slides over the working table should be flat.

Woodturning Lathe

A machine that converts a piece into a chosen shape irrespective of it being a spindle, bowl, or different decorative wood items is called a wood lathe machine. A piece of wood is attached to a spinning arm and multiple tools are used to provide shape to a piece of wood while it is spinning.

The lathe has played and is playing a crucial role in the development of civilization. Production of wheels and making various kinds of furniture such as tableware, and parts of mill and pumps, jewelry-making and many other important developments were some productions where the lathe was used.

Mostly, a lathe comprises a spindle and tailstock where the desired wood, which the woodworker wants to turn, is attached. The use of multiple bladed tools and the tool rest is used to trim the outside of the wood. In doing so, the bark is taken off and is shaped until the desired shape is not attained.

Furthermore, a woodworker can make use of the hollow which comes out of the wood to make vessels such as utensils, vases and decorative items.


A high-speed process in which wood is cut, trimmed and shaped is called routing and the machine used for this process is called a router. Wood routing is a process that is used to shape the wood by producing finished edges and shapes. Materials that are difficult to shape can be shaped neatly using a router.

A CNC router is a convenient tool to use in comparison to a spindle moulders when it comes to fishing light work. A router has a higher conversion rate than a spindle moulder as it works at a high speed thus, finishing the job much quicker.

Circular Saw:

Circular saws mainly use a toothed blade which is usually between a 7-¼ and 9 inches in diameter. They are also referred to as a buzz saw or the most popular name of a circular saw of called Skilsaw.

Circular saws are very much like table saws. It is a very common workshop equipment. It is a very flexible tool with a high level of portability. It is a handheld power tool with a rotating blade that is pushed across the wood to cut it through.

48907620002 ed83ee0c8b b - Investment for your Woodworking Shop

The prime purpose of a circular saw is to cut the wood and soft materials, thus, it can also act as a table saw. Moreover, this saw can be used to cut very tough materials like metals with the use of a suitable circular saw blade.

Random Orbit Sander:

A random orbit sander works alternatively by spinning the sanding disk and moving it in an elliptical path. The random sanding action helps in preventing the swirl marks. However, the direction of the grains is not an issue when sanding is being performed.

Usually, the random orbital sanders come in 5 or 6 inches sizes that are as per the sanding disk in use. A 5-inch sander, because of their better mobility, is mainly used for DIYers purpose. With circular pads, the round orbital sander is different from an orbital finish sander.

This sander is controlled by the palm of the woodworker’s hand and a light touch is all these sanders need to make them do the desired work.

Mostly, the round orbit sanders come with a vacuum system that gets activated when the sander is turned on. The fine particles coming out of the wood are sucked through the holes that are embedded in the surface of the sander. These particles get deposited detachable canister.

Although there is a vacuum system, woodworkers are advised to use safety goggles and respiratory masks as a safety measure for their health purposes.

48907436786 e52622b272 b - Investment for your Woodworking Shop

Chisel: There is a need for a chisel to clean out saw cuts and joints. Thus, a woodworker must possess a chisel in his/her arsenal. Built of high-alloy carbon steel or chromium-vanadium alloyed steel, chisel requires a hardwood grip with metal caps, which are the best, for holding purposes. This type of grip prevents the end of the handle, which is getting hammered by the woodworker, from becoming distorted.

48907640902 8fd7ebdfb5 b - Investment for your Woodworking Shop

Chisel is one such tool that requires the use of both hands. Because of this, a woodworker can enjoy the power and control over a chisel while cutting wood away. One thing to keep in mind is that the claw hammer will destroy the end of a chisel if not used properly.

● Health, Safety, and Workwear (PPE)

Workshop Vacuum System:

Once you start woodworking, you will soon realize that sawdust gets everywhere and a broom alone is probably not enough of a solution. Not only is having a system in place to deal with dust important for the air quality of your shop and what you are breathing, but I feel more productive in a clean shop without sawdust all over everything.

48906912408 60214c4ec3 b - Investment for your Woodworking Shop

It will not take time for any woodworker to realize that sawdust will be a pain in his/her eye. In some cases, the broom alone will not be enough to get rid of the widespread sawdust. For this reason, a woodworker is advised to have a vacuum system to deal with this massacre. With a vacuum system, the air quality will be taken care off and the shop will be much cleaner in comparison to the brooming one.

Since large workshops have large dust extractors but there are custom vacuum cleaners available in the market that can fit the size of a workshop under a planned budget.

Other Equipment:

Apart from the aforementioned things, a woodworker must make sure that he/she has covered the basic aspects of the woodworking workshop. Small things can pull stunts that even power tools cannot pull off. Hence a woodworker should make sure that they are covered with the below-mentioned items in their store.

● Bench Vice and storage:

A heavy-duty wood clamping vice that is attached to a workbench is called woodwork vice. Due to its design, it is capable of heavy-duty work. It has a strong metal construction and wide jaws, a woodworking vice can withstand large amounts of pressure when the work is on.

For any bench, there is a need for easy-access storage otherwise things will clutter over the benchtop making it a messy affair. Thus, having drawers that mount directly under the benchtop fits the scheme of things very nicely.

● Abrasives, cleaners, and finishing:

After working hard to get the desired shape and size of the wood, a woodworker needs abrasives, cleaners and finishing materials to get the finishing right.

However, the choice matters a lot when it comes to these items. A look-out for cheap stuff can get the finishing wrong. Hence, it is advised to research properly about these materials and understand the surface the project is involved in before investing in these materials.

Putting money in a woodworking shop can be a rugged effort and will require substantial thinking from the woodworker. However, if one inclines with the thoughts mentioned above then it will become easier for the woodworking companies to understand where they want to lay out their money.

Tips for your Cabinet Making Production Line

Cabinet Making Production Line

Cabinet Woodworking is not an easy business to be in. Just like other businesses, it also demands time, patience and persistence. There will be times where things will be tough to come by but this will be the time where the character of the person involved will be tested.

Nevertheless, this could be the best option only if things are implemented well. Here are a few tips that could help:

1. Plan Your Business:

There should be a map for building a good house. Similarly, there should be a clear plan to reach the optimum level of cabinet making business. A plan helps by letting an individual know what the specifics of this game if he/she is missing out and enables them to discover the unknowns. It makes them understand the market and their competitors.

48901540168 56e0cdbe2e c - Tips for your Cabinet Making Production Line

Helps them understand the importance of being a legal entity of their own. This also prevents the person from being personally liable if his/her cabinet making business is sued.

2. Define the Brand:

Defining a brand is the most crucial part of any business. A business is always known by its brand rather than its product.

The company stands for the Brand he/she creates. Moreover, the brand becomes the identity of the company based on how the business is perceived by the public. A strong brand will help that person’s business to out-perform its competitors.

48901543353 2bc7540b9d b - Tips for your Cabinet Making Production Line

3. Identify the Target Market:

A business model is nothing without a target market. The target market chiefly comprises of architects, contractors, and interior designers; hence, it becomes very important to get in touch with them.

These agents are the gateway to the property owner who is the ultimate payer. These agents help a cabinet maker by recommending them to the property owner for cabinets making of their property.

4. Tools are the Property A Business Needs:

These are just a few elementary tips that could help in the making of a cabinet making production line.

However, one needs to understand that there is a factor that is vital for this production line ー the tools.

48902293042 b70321e34a b - Tips for your Cabinet Making Production Line

Tools are the paintbrush of cabinet making business. They determine the position of a person in the market. Anyone who is a part of cabinet making will know to get a perfect cut for a cabinet, the right choice of tool is very crucial.

Hence, here is a list and description of the tools that every woodworker in this industry looks forward to own:

  • Claw Hammer
  • Tape Measure
  • Utility Knife
  • Moisture Meter
  • Chisel
  • Level
  • Screwdriver
  • Layout Square

● The Claw Hammer:

Perhaps this is the very basic tool that every woodwork has under their possession. The thing to keep in mind while having this is that the claw on one side should be balanced by the weight of the well-rounded finished head on the opposite side.

48901562708 7a862a7ac8 c - Tips for your Cabinet Making Production Line

There is one more kind of head. That is known as the waffle-head. It is commonly used for construction purposes. The special feature of this kind of hammer is that it leaves a waffle mark on the wood while driving the nail. This mark is distinctive in its own way, giving a unique look to the hammered area.

All you have to do is direct the driving surface toward the right nail, sparing the ones on your hand.

However, one must know a fact about the claw hammer. A poorly-balanced claw hammer can twist the user’s hand. Hence, making it difficult for the hammer and the user to drive the nails properly. Normally, people grip the hammer with their hand at the back of the grip, thus, allowing the weight of the hammer’s head to do most of the work.

This allows the user to give direction to the hammer for driving the nail into the surface, resulting in less work (if the technique is right).

Usually, people buy a 20 oz size hammer. This hammer is pretty heavy and works smoothly while driving the nail into the surface and can be very handy when there is a need for pulling out a nail. It is advised that a user should use handles that are either made of steel handle or fiberglass, which is a stronger option.

Nonetheless, a hickory handle is the best when it comes to absorbing the vibrations that are generated while driving a nail. Furthermore, one must ensure that a handle should have a rubber grip which can make work for control and comfort.

Wooden hammers are the best when the work requires driving a lot of nails. They offer a comfort quotient by providing stress to the hand and the wrist.

● Tape Measure:

A precise tape measure is a substantial tool for a woodworker. Pro tip: one should have a 25 feet long retractable tape measure. Anything longer than that could end up having a user with issues of rolling it back.

Considering the fact that the measurements on the large scale projects could likely or liable to be influenced to the slightest measurement fluctuation. Hence, one needs to ensure that the “hook” or tab at the end of the tape is securely attached, assuring not measurement errors.

48902101906 9a86fcbc5d b - Tips for your Cabinet Making Production Line

● Utility Knife:

The woodworker will use the utility knife when cleaning out mortise joints or scribe wood, as well as many other uses.

A good working utility knife is a precious gem for a woodworker. There are a variety of knives available in the market. Out of them, knives with disposable blades are quite popular among woodworkers. The blades pullback in the grip for safety.

48902307252 d506bccbd4 b - Tips for your Cabinet Making Production Line

A utility knife is a priceless addition in the list for a woodworker. It can be quite handy for tasks like hanging wallboard, cutting cardboard or plastic sheets, and a dozen other jobs.

The utility tool should be handled with respect. It has a design that allows the blade to retract into the body of the tool. There are knives with a button that allows with the flick of the thumb built into the top of the case that slides the blade in and out.

● Moisture Meter:

For the success of any woodworking project that a woodworker undertakes, a quality wood moisture meter is very necessary. If the wood is harvested in a wet region and is being transported to a dry region for the use of the project, there is a probability that the wood will get dried up by the time it is ready to use.

48902105701 c516ea7274 c - Tips for your Cabinet Making Production Line

Moreover, it is a well-known fact that the wood needs to have the correct amount of moisture level as per the requirement of that particular area to make a woodworking project a successful one.

There are two types of moisture meters – with pins and without pins.

Using Moisture Meters with pin leaves holes on the surface of the wood while penetrating. These holes require filling.

The pinless moisture meters have sensing plates that scan the wood beneath them. Nonetheless, not all the pinless moisture meters are the same. One must look for the technology that the meter uses. There are meters with IntelliSense technology which enables the moisture meter to not get affected by the moisture present in the woods.

Some of the moisture meters have in them which could be altered for different kinds of woods. Therefore, a woodworker must check each kind of wood they are using for the woodworking project. Also, they should make sure that there is a sufficient amount of moisture content before they start to work to produce their ultimate product.

● Chisel:

A miscellaneous collection of chisels should be a part of every woodworker’s workbench. Every woodworker needs a chisel to clean out saw cuts and joints. Chisel is made up of high-alloy carbon steel or chromium-vanadium alloyed steel.

When it comes to holding a chisel, hardwood grips with metal caps are the best. This prevents the end of the handle from becoming distorted whenever a woodworker hammers on it.

The use of chisel requires the operation of both the hands. The use of both hands allows for power and control of a chisel when it is cutting away the wood. A claw hammer will damage the butt end of the chisel if it is not used properly.

● Level:

No matter who is the woodworker, there is a surety that the woodworker will require a couple of levels. A woodworker might not need a 6-foot level but a 48” level is a good length for almost all the woodworking projects that one handles.

A level can be of different types. One of them is a torpedo level. It is an 8” level. Mostly, the pick of a level depends on the plumb of the woodworker’s construction work is there to be done. The horizontal part is called level and the vertical part is called plumb.

48902312742 4591ae1d97 c - Tips for your Cabinet Making Production Line

It is observed that the levels are mostly made up of either brass-edged wood or of metal. For level, there is a bubble reading and the other one will be for plumb.

To detect whether the surface is a level surface or a plumb surface, check for the bubble. If the bubble is precisely

between the lines, it means it has a level or plumb surface.

Two more levels are available in the market, they are – string levels and laser levels.

● The Screwdriver:

One of the essential components of a woodworker’s set of tools. The quality of construction needs a good set of screwdrivers.

48902120361 cde1be0c9d c - Tips for your Cabinet Making Production Line

A woodworker needs a very heavy duty long screwdriver with a square blade. This provides a lot of torque. A small and medium screwdriver also works fine for the woodworker. To screw the screws sitting deep inside a hole requires a screwdriver with think shank especially when functioning on tight places or cabinets in woodworking.

A woodworker probably can grind a high-quality screwdriver material flat when it gets worn out. One thing to keep in mind is that too much heat could change the temper of the metal, thus, weakening it so much that it could not drive a screw.

● Layout Square:

A combination of the square which comes in 6” and 12” sizes is known as a layout square. Mostly, people use a 6” model just for a simple reason and that is the convenience of carrying it everywhere. The layout square is a triangle that is used to mark square cuts on the stocks a woodworker is assigned to use.

48901592918 8b2839e5f4 c - Tips for your Cabinet Making Production Line

Once the length of the cut is measured, the woodworker needs to line up the layout with the edge of the board. The short side of the square will give you a straight and square cut across the end grain.

A woodworker can also measure angles with the layout square. It can also be used to find the existing angles.

The thing to keep in mind is that one should use a metal layout square as the plastic are fragile and the reading on them tends to fade away, thus, making them useless.

48902327672 3c4671b1ec b - Tips for your Cabinet Making Production Line

There are a lot of things to ponder when a person is looking to invest in a woodworking business, especially when it comes to cabinet making production line. However, there is no hiding from the fact that the above tips and tools description is necessary to lay a solid foundation of a cabinet making woodworking business.

How to Choose the Perfect CNC Plasma Machine for Your Shop

CNC Plasma Machine

1. Introduction

With the increasing digitization, many manufacturing plants have adopted the evolving technology and CNC machining to manufacture high-tech products. CNC tools have become advanced, complex, and connected to automation. The new CNC technology helps businesses to create new products at reduced cost and with an ever-increasing arsenal of exciting materials. Smarter and more connected CNC machines require less dependency on human operation.

48676337221 f315297dd4 b - How to Choose the Perfect CNC Plasma Machine for Your Shop

The advanced machinery can operate on their own without the interference of humans. You just need to give the command to operate the machine. The unsurpassed performance, productivity, accuracy, and reliability make the high-tech CNC machine one of the most popular inventions.

2. What is Plasma Cutting Technology

Speaking in simple words, a plasma cutting machine is one of the most interesting and powerful tools of the 20th century. The basic principle of physics is used to harness the fourth state of matter and the machine works with magical results. Plasma cutting is a process that uses a high-velocity jet of ionized gas that is released from the constricting orifice.

The plasma machine generates high-velocity ionized gas to conduct electricity and then operate on a piece of material. Plasma cutting machine is commonly used for cutting metals for a variety of purposes. The plasma heats the workpiece and melts the material. The high-velocity stream of ionized gas blows molten metal thereby giving shape to the product and making the cut.

Plasma cutting is one of the effective ways of cutting different types of materials, both thin and thick. The hand-held plasma torch can cut up to 38 mm (1.5 inches) thick steel plate while computer-controlled torches can cut steel up to 150 mm (6 inches) thick material. Since the plasma cutting machine produces a very hot and localized cone-shaped tool to cut the materials, they are also used for cutting sheet metal in curved or angled shapes.

The plasma cutting machine emerged in 1980 as a productive way to cut sheet metal and plate. The conventional plasma cutting machines were large and inefficient than today. Earlier, the CNC plasma cutting machines were also limited to cutting patterns and parts in flat sheets of steel.

3. What is Plasma Cutting Machine used for?

The plasma cutting machine utilizes the heat of the high-temperature plasma arc to melt the metal material used for shaping. The high speed of this advanced machine is used to eliminate the molten metal from an incision. Plasma machines are controlled with CNC. CNC table allows a computer to control the torch head of the plasma machine to produce clean sharp cuts. Most modern CNC plasma cutting equipment is capable of multi-axis cutting thick materials enchaining the opportunities for complex welding that seems to be impossible otherwise.

The plasma cutting machine cuts out different shapes and designs of metal that are then combined to create artwork. Auto repair shops, salvage yards, and construction sites often use plasma cutting machines to cut sheets of metal. Depending on the experience of the user and tool of the cutter, very fine and precise cuts can be made.

Plasma cutting machine is designed to produce sharpest and best quality cuts that can be only achieved with plasma machine. A CNC plasma cutter uses a plasma torch to cut different types of materials in different shapes and sizes. Stainless steel, carbon steel, copper, aluminum, and brass are some types of metal materials that are used by plasma cutting machine for cutting. Plasma cutters often cut sheet metal or square/round metal tubes.

OMNI CNC offers the most versatile CNC plasma machine for smooth cutting and clean cuts. This computer-controlled equipment can create intricate as well as complex patterns on the surface of the material. CNC plasma cutting machine creates a prototype of the objects with the ability to cut and carve with precision. OMNI CNC plasma cutting machine that can effortlessly cut 5mm and 3 mm thick steel tubes and sheets.

4. Choose Right Plasma Cutting Machine for Your Facility

The quality of the cut is very important to determine the type of machine you would buy for your shop. Ideally, the good quality of cut makes better-finished products. The more precise, clean, and smooth edges that plasma cutting machine creates, less metal is wasted.

There are some factors that should be considered while choosing a plasma cutting machine for your shop/facility. Let us take a look at some of the factors underlined below:

• Thickness of the Metal Used

The sources of most of the plasma cutting machines are rated on their ability to cutting and amperage. If you cut ¼” thick material, you should consider a lower amperage plasma cutting machine. However, if the thickness of the metal is ½” then you should look for a high amperage unit. Every unit has an optimal range of thickness and it should match up with your needs. Talking in general terms, a ¼” machine has approximately 25 amps of output, a 1/2″ machine has a 50-60 amp output while a ¾” – 1″ machine has 80 amps output. So, you should match up with the requirements.

• Optimal Cutting Speed

When a plasma cutting machine, the manufacturers provide cutting speed for and the thickness of the metal is measured in IPM (inches per minute). If the metal most frequently cut is ¼”, a machine that offers higher amperages will be able to cut through the metal much faster than a low current unit. For production cutting, the thumb rule is to choose a machine that handles approximately twice the normal cutting thickness. Take, for instance, to perform for a long time, fast, quality production cuts on ¼” steel, you should choose a 1/2″ class machine. Like welding equipment, the duty cycle is considered as important for automated and continuous cutting. The duty cycle is the time that is consistently used for cutting before the machine or torch overheats and requires cooling.

5. How can the Plasma Cutting Machine Operates?

A plasma cutting machine is capable of cutting thick metal sheets in any shape and size. This computer-controlled machine gives instructions through a computer over the manual handheld plasma cutter. It is compatible with optional CNC parts and improves the accuracy, flexibility, and productivity. Regardless of the size and shape, plasma cutters function on the same principle and constructed on the same design.

48676513282 6959bce98a b - How to Choose the Perfect CNC Plasma Machine for Your Shop

Plasma cutter operates with pressurized gas through a narrow channel. You will find negative electrodes in the center of the channel. The negative electrode gets power when you touch the top of the nozzle to metal thereby creating a circuit. The powerful spark is generated between the electrode and the metal. As the inert gas passes through the channel, the spark heats the gas until it reaches the fourth state of matter. This type of reaction creates a stream of directed plasma, approximately 30,000 F (16,649 C) and moving at 20,000 feet per second (6,096 m/sec), thereby reducing metal to molten slag.

48676345646 dbd2c15cb2 b - How to Choose the Perfect CNC Plasma Machine for Your Shop

Most plasma cutting machines have a pilot arc that works on high frequency to conduct electricity through the air. This happens to be very smooth at first but with time high frequency can interfere with computers or office equipment.

In the past, the plasma cutting machines were very expensive and they were generally used for cutting huge metals but in recent times, the cost and size of the plasma cutting machines have dropped. This all-inclusive tool gives artists the ability to make bevel cuts, bore precise holes, and cut in just about any way it can be conceived.

6. Plasma Cutting Machine and its Maintenance

Before operating the machine, it is very important to take a look at measures of cutting machines, let us take a look at some of the measures:

  • It is very important to check the leakage of the air circuit system, plasma power supply, cutting torch before work.
  • Ensure that the cutting nozzle and the electrode are in order with the setting of the plasma machine
  • Check the gas pressure, air filters, air compressor, etc.
  • The power source and the gas source of the machine should be shut off when the machine is kept in the rest position for a long time.
  • Regularly oil the lifting mechanism of the machine such as ball bearing, screw, linear guide slider.
  • Check direct current motor brush every year. The excessive endurance on the DC motor will affect the performance of the motor and even pose damage to the motor.
  • Clean accumulated metal dust from the machine and ensure all air filters are clean.

7. Portability and Durability are the Advantages of Plasma Cutter

The plasma cutters are interesting and among the most powerful tools of the 20th century. Many users operate a plasma cutting machine for numerous cutting applications. This machine can be easily moved from one place to another. Portability is one of the greatest advantages of this machine.

The plasma cutting machine has a high endurance/durability level. It can be used under hard environments and offer a protective cage around the air filter. Filters ensure that the oil is removed from the compressed air allowing the air easy to operate the machine.

8. Follow Warning to Keep Yourself Safe

Plasma cutting requires considerable voltage to establish the arc of 300VDC. The plasma cutting machine comes with a nozzle to protect the operator from this hazard, but if the machine gets started without nozzle in its place, a serious accident might take place. The nozzle provides safety and prevents the machine from starting an arc unless the nozzle is in its place.

Another safety measure that you shouldn’t overlook while working on a plasma machine is a pre-flow sequence. This feature provides a warning before the arc starts to operate. Besides, look for a machine that provides a three-second pre-flow safety which gives users advanced warning to make sure all body parts are clear of the nozzle before the arc initiates.

Furthermore, while operating the machine, it is advised to wear a helmet or mask to shield you from the sparks of the plasma, wear gloves and boots to protect yourself from getting injured.

9.Trial and Testing before Purchasing Plasma Cutter for your Shop

If you are planning to purchase a plasma cutting machine for your shop then it is advised to first try the machine before you buy. You can make test cuts on a variety of machines with the same rate of speed and the same thickness of the material used.

You can also test the plasma torch while cutting the material. Lift the plasma torch from the plate while cutting and see how far you can move the torch away from the workpiece and still maintain an arc. The longer arc would mean high voltage capacity and ability to cut through the thick plate.

10. Conclusion

CNC plasma machine is a viable option for not only large industries but also small companies. The advanced technology boosts productivity and cuts down the cost of production at the same time. While you evaluate the CNC plasma machine for your shop, it is advised to consider the aforementioned pointers and boost efficiency as well as the revenue of your shop.

Furthermore, ensure that you allocate funds for shipping, installation, operation, and maintenance of the machine. The more you take care of the maintenance of the machine; the lower will be the operating cost. Get the best range of plasma cutting machine for your shop now from OMNI CNC.

How to Purchase the Perfect CNC Waterjet for Your Shop?

CNC Waterjet

A manufacturing process in which pre-programmed computer software dictates the movement of the factory tools and machinery is called CNC Machining. The process is being used for a wide range of complex machinery. Three-dimensional cutting tasks can be accomplished in a single set of prompts with the use of CNC machinery.

The advances in the centre technologies in recent years have led to the marketing of programming methods used by competing for machine manufactures. The G-code still lies in the heart of CNC machining.

Furthermore, the innovation is saving time and money for many companies just by reducing scrap and eliminating damage to their machining centres, are simulation, verification, and optimization software. Several companies have started to supply these software packages, some with unique and innovative features.

These software packages not only allow a manufacturer to replicate the machining of a new part but also it helps in verifying the tool paths to eliminate collisions and crashing and optimize production. Besides, they also allow the detection of inconsistency by measuring and analyzing.

Moreover, the machining centre control software has been considerable, albeit, smarter software always requires smarter hardware.

What is a CNC Waterjet?

In CNC machining, water jets are tools that cut hard materials, such as granite and metal, with high-pressure applications of water. In some cases, the water is mixed with sand or some other strong substance. Factory machine parts are often shaped through this process.

48670113133 107d6edeb9 b - How to Purchase the Perfect CNC Waterjet for Your Shop?

The water jet is one of the tools that comes under CNC machinery and is used to cut hard materials such as metal and granite with high-pressure applications of water.

Water jets are used as an option for cooler for materials that are unable to bear the extreme heat of the other CNC machines. Water jets are used in a wide array of cutting and carving processes where the process is quite powerful.

How to Purchase a CNC Waterjet Machine for Your Shop?

CNC waterjet can cut aluminium, steel, plastics, PVC, and many other materials just as well as any other CNC machine. However, they do it faster than any other CNC machine. The quality is high and there is a surety of no damage to the environment.

Hence, CNC waterjet is a good option for cutting and carving. So, if a person is interested in adding it and has decided to evaluate the cost and other elements of CNC waterjet, they should make sure they check these factors out before purchasing it:

Basic Components and Their Operation:

High-Pressure Pump:

The Pump is the most essential part of the waterjet. The pressure generated by the pump produces a flow of pressurized water for the cutting process.

48670476576 3ae65e3a6b b - How to Purchase the Perfect CNC Waterjet for Your Shop?

Articulated Cutting Head

This computer-controlled multi-axis cutting head helps in angled cuts. It can also help in minimizing the taper for acute vertical cuts automatically.

Abrasive Waterjet Nozzle

The pressurized water inside the nozzle passes through a small-diameter hole and forms a jet of water. After that, the jet passes through the venturi part where a certain amount of granular abrasive is released into the water stream. The blend of abrasive and water goes through the ceramic mixing tube. Thus, the mixture exits the nozzle as the cutting stream of abrasive particles moves at high speed.

Catcher Tank

The energy of the abrasive jet is released from the water-filler catcher after it has cut through the material in the machine.

Abrasive Hopper

The abrasive hopper and associated abrasive flow control system provide a certain flow of granular abrasive to the nozzle.

X-Y Traverse System

An accurate X-Y motion system is used to precisely move the nozzle in order to create the desired cutting path.

PC-based Controller

The further motion controller for abrasive waterjet system is PC-based.

Thickness at which CNC waterjet cuts:

A waterjet can cut anything. From Steel to Inconel and armour plate to materials that are sensitive to high temperatures, it can cut anything! It can cut almost any shape. Furthermore, thickness up to 10 inches can be cut with precision. The cutter also makes the cutting uniform and burr-free. The same tool of a waterjet is used to cut different types of products.

What Horsepower Do You Need?

Along with sufficient power, multiple cutting heads can be a feature of CNC waterjet, which increases its output.

Less electricity is consumed by the direct-drive waterjets. Usually, they consume up to 75 percent less water than an intensified pump, hence lowering the running cost. In contrast to intensified pumps, the direct-drive pump only applies pressure when the machine is cutting.

Waterjet cutter for soft and hard materials?

Whether the CNC waterjet is cutting a blank for a blank or coil with a hardened material or cutting through soft material such as lead, aluminium or platinum that has the properties of warm butter; a user can shape their nozzle settings to perfectly fit the variable for material hardness. Because of the nature of waterjet, the pressure setting and speed of the nozzle movement are all changed according to the user.

How versatile are water jet cutters?

When it comes to cutting metals like titanium, and aluminium, CNC waterjet cutting is the most versatile cutting method compared to laser and plasma cutting. Moreover, CNC waterjet can be used to cut thicker metals up to 12”/305 mm with great precision.

Reduces overhead expenses of waterjet cutters:

The big cost factors in waterjet cutting are the fixed costs of overhead, depreciation, and interest. By increasing the number of parts cut per day one can reduce the fixed costs of the waterjet machine.

By increasing the number of cutting head on a waterjet too affects the number of parts produced per day. To get maximum material usage out of the nesting having two heads, automatic head spacing is quite critical. The turning of the second head makes sure that the first head is cutting small steps, and this is enabled by automatic head spacing. Without automatic head spacing, the machine is wasting large amounts of raw material.

Material handling can also be one of the reasons to reduce cost on waterjet cutters. A removable cassette system, for example, enables the user to remove the entire cutting frame from the machine. Henceforth, the user can then offload and load the first cassette while the machine cuts.

Besides, there are companies which are now starting to consider the “soft costs” related to the operation of machine tools. These costs could turn out to be important over long periods.
A good programming software system can reduce engineering labour costs, reduce overall time, from order to finished part, and improve material usage.

By drying the used abrasive, the user can reduce abrasive weight and also the cost of its disposal. While removing the sludge, if the sludge drains out of the removal system; this activity can alone eliminate the user’s problem. Disposal cost is determined by the container is used for it.

Moreover, fabricators also determine the reduction in cost. As more and more fabricators get into the waterjet cutting field, profitability takes on greater importance. Searching for ways to reduce variable and fixed costs can help you remain competitive.

Water jet cutting machine tool offers many advantages:

To benefit your unique job, the use of waterjet is quite advantageous. Here are a few advantages that one can experience when using a CNC waterjet.

Green Technology:

Using a CNC waterjet is sort of using green technology. The CNC waterjet cutter neglects to create hazardous waste. The salvaging of scrap metal is a thing which CNC Water Jets helps in. Further, thanks to the closed-loop structure of this machine, the CNC waterjet cutter uses less water.

Free from Mechanical Effort

The biggest advantage that a CNC waterjet can offer is that it is free from any kind of mechanical stress. As the waterjet pressure is forced downward, no side pressures are created; thus, forcing the material on the table. For this reason, clamping and fixing are almost negligible. Since no heat is created due to no contact of metal or non-metal; therefore, no stress is introduced in the material by the CNC waterjet machine.

48670479381 341a299f4a b - How to Purchase the Perfect CNC Waterjet for Your Shop?

Cuts anything:

If one is to compare laserjets and other cutters to CNC waterjet, the CNC water jet cutter can cut almost anything. Just like a normal cutter, the CNC waterjet can manage any product or material. Tough materials such as bullet-proof glass, stone, metals or even materials with reflective or uneven surfaces can be cut through using a CNC waterjet.

The high pressure exerted, that increases the water pressure to about 4,000 bar, by the pump enables the CNC waterjet cutter to cut any material laid beneath it.

Use of Waterjet induces less heat

When using laser or plasma cutter, could burn or melt with chemically altering the cut material because of an excessive amount of heat. However, using a CNC waterjet cutter is a different thing altogether.

The parts cut by CNC Waterjet cutters remain unaffected because of water, which is being used as the medium. Water, which is known for its insulation and absorption of heat, helps in maintaining the state cut parts. Water jets can be quite critical on things where the material is not allowed to show any signs of burning or discoloration; or on materials where the use of laser is prohibited due to its burning effect, which includes releasing toxins into the atmosphere. Very little heat is created, generated or even transferred to the cutting material when using a CNC waterjet. This becomes very helpful when working on tool steels, exotic alloys, stainless steel, and other metals, where heat could alter the characteristics of the metal. Same goes for plastics, composites, phenolics, laminates, and acrylics.

High Quality:

The finish provided by CNC waterjet cutters stands out when it is compared to saw cutting, routing, plasma cutting, and laser cutting. CNC Waterjet cutters are cost-efficient as they are smoother, free from burnt edges, chips, slag, and burr. Waterjet is typically used for signs and displays with its name taken among the best finishing products. With a smoother and cleaner finish, the CNC waterjet cutter has made its name in many different industries.

In this fast-moving world where accuracy and precision are very important, a CNC waterjet is a thing that should be installed. With the increase in demand and various advantages as mentioned above, a CNC waterjet is a thing that can revolutionize the way carving has been done up till now.
