Edgebanding and Cutrite

When working with other manufacturing software such as Cutrite there is often a requirement to send information about the ‘blanks’ required.

The dimensions of the edgebanding must be handled correctly to ensure the machining processes turn out accurate.

If for example, a part will be sized on a panel saw then will have edgebanded and finally will be drilled and machined, it is absolutely critical that the parts are ‘sized’ without banding but the machining is calculated with banding.

ONGAA CAM can supply both dimensions, banded and unbanded, as variables in an MPR program. Also in the program will be 4 variables, L1, L2, W1, W2 which represent the thickness of each side.

Let’s assume for our example that the parts are modelled with edgebanding included.

If the panel saw software can read MPR variable data then we have to tell the software to use EBL, EBW and EBT variable … Read the rest
