Default wisdom

Hi guys
Just wondering if there is any other camheads out there using mozaik on a day to day basis .Really like the software .tech service is great .still trying to
soak it all in . But some of the feed rates seemed really hi to me the tech set
up during some parameter training classes. I usually use a 3/8 comp to cut out all my parts. 350 to 400 IPM 14000 to 17500 RPM . He specked way higher numbers than that. Anyhow drilling feed and speed for 5mm system holes I run at 60 IPM plunge 8000 to 9000 rpm . Any help or wisdom would be appreciated. Trying to get the best out of the stinger .
Thanks

I use a 2 flute 3/8' compression cutter at 18000rpm and 700ipm. We are a cabinet shop that cuts 5/8" melamine all day long. Looking at your machine, you may not have the vacuum required to cut at those speeds.

For your machine, I would spin about 18000rpm and start at about 400ipm and keep moving your feedrate faster until bad things happen (parts move, ugly sounds, etc), then back off a bit and consider this good to go with.

We are getting 40-60 sheets using 2 flute 3/8 comp. I will have to check w tim for the feed and depth for pass

what are your feeds and DPP

We look to balance quantity of sheets against speed of cuts

Jim,
We are getting well over 100 sheets, probably 150, before chipout becomes a problem. That being said, 99.9% of the time we are cutting a maple melamine so any minor chipout cant be seen. We have found that when cutting white melamine, we need a very sharp tool, and I would agree with your 40 to 60 sheet range.

David...
Give me a call at the plant and I can get you some feeds and speeds to match your machine and product.
