Finepart was challenged to produce a component in 17 mm Nylon. Due to the application and design, no taper was allowed on the finished part as the structure limits the possibilities of improving the surfaces in a post-process.
|Size||60 mm x 60 mm|
|Cutting length||849 mm|
|Requirements||Straight cutting edges|
|Picture from the IGEMS CAD/CAM preparation|
Erosion based cutting with 0.3 mm cutting width. No heat impact. Not limited to cutting only electrically conductive materials.
Cutting of material attached to the worktable. Piercing of holes is done automatically during start for each contour. Cutting speed adjusted to eliminate cut taper at edges.
|Preparation time||15 minutes|
|Cutting time per component||14.5 minutes|
|Cost for individual component||3.63 EUR|
|Min||60 mm/min (the latter is for corners and small radius)|
|Cutting time (per piece)||11 min 30 sec, piercing: 2 min 10 sec|
|Surface quality requires no further finishing.|
No post-processing required
Cuts virtually all materials
