PLEXIGLAS® sawing

Start film PLEXIGLAS® sawing

View here, how PLEXIGLAS® can be sawed easily!


Adequate separating tools are as follows:

 

  • Circular saw bench
  • Circular hand saws with hard metal saw blades,  so-called multiple toothing saw-blades. The tooth pitch of the saw blades should be approx. 13 mm.  Always use well ground saw blades, which are used for PLEXIGLAS® only.
  • jigsaws
  • fret saws
  • bow saws; since their saw blades are set no good cutting edge (outburst) is achievable.  Therefore, use only sharp saw blades.  Also, determine the right cutting condition through the number of strokes and change of feeder.
  • Use carving knife as separation aid with PLEXIGLAS® GS and XT basic types, however not with impact modified PLEXIGLAS® Resist.

PLEXIGLAS® drilling

Start film PLEXIGLAS® drilling

View here, how easily drilling of PLEXIGLAS® can be!


Please note for drilling:

  • Possibly use a drilling rack
  • at 5 mm drilling depth cool with water or with air blast
  • at deep drillings "air out" drill several times; best after each 1 mm drilling depth
  • right cutting rate and right feed is identified by smooth, connected chip flow
  • at start and close to puncture reduce feed
  • for round saw cuts up to 60 mm a hole saw or "Slugger" cutter is suited best; eventually pre-drill the center with a suitable drill; use water or compressed air for cooling.
