Quality & Affordable Cut
Concerning Fast CAM, the CNC cutting drawings are made on a PC, using a CAD program (which can saved as .dxf, as AUTOCAD by example) then using Fast CAM loaded on the same PC translate in a CNC cutting program. This one is saving on a memory stick and loaded into SteelTailor via the USB port. Another way is, use Fast CAM directly to make the drawings, then translate in a cutting program with the G and M codes and to save it in the memory stick, then plug in the USB port of SteelTailor.
The list is :-Burny 3 5 10，Edge EIA，ESSI，Fagor，Lynx EIA，START，KangPu，Koike，FastCNCWhen you use the SteelTailor machine, Please choose “START”.
You made the drawing of the part to be cut with the FastCAM cutting nesting software, After you setting the Fast Path, this drawing is automatically translated in a cutting program. Or if you are using AutoCAD, you made the drawing with the CAD software; you process it with FastCAM to have a cutting program. As well, if you want to cut several time the same shape from the same metal sheet, the cutting software has the nesting facility.
With the optional FastCAM Outline Software you may translate a picture file (.jpg, .bmp, .awg, …) into a .dwg file and then to a cutting program.
If your solid works CAD software may save the file in .dxf extension FastCAM may translate your drawings into CNC cutting programs.
This upgrade, will allow you to work big art work or nesting files. It increase the memory size from 8Kb to 26 Kb, allowing you 1024 lines program instead of 540 before. Please note, that the loading time will be 20 seconds and when cutting if you want to visualize the cutting shape, it will take 20 seconds as well (since mid 2007 all CNC cutting machines have the memory upgraded)
Concerning the hot tip problem, the problem leading to self-extinguish the flame, can be observed, after two hours, the flame is becoming unstable and need adjustment of the flow of the cutting oxygen. To cool down the nozzle, I will not recommend to dip it in water….thermal shock. Air blowing is ok. But I must say that two hours of cutting operation is really long. As duty cycle, I must say that 10 min waiting is enough to cool down the tip to avoid this problem.
