Finecut WMC500II erosion based cutting with 0.3 mm cutting, here prepared by the IGEMS CADCAM for Nylon

Cutting 17 mm thick Nylon

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.

Finecut FAW300

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 time15 minutes
Cutting time per component14.5 minutes
Cost for individual component3.63 EUR

 

Cutting speed

Max175 mm/min
Min60 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.
