Use and procedures
Every time you use it
- Empty the water trap at the back into a bin.
- Check that there is not excessive build up of detritus underneath the cutting bed.
- Measure the thickness of the material. DO NOT CUT BENT MATERIAL – This will cause crashes
- Enter the thickness into the software. Double check it is correct.
- Check that your material is on the safe to cut list. If it is not, you may NOT cut it. To get it added check the internet for safety information then report to the lab manager.
- Ensure that the ventilation unit is on during the cut, and off when not in use.
This is a list of our tools. If you wish to suggest additional tools to be provided by ICRS, contact the lab manager here.
