Cutting technology is based on the compression of two opposite press surfaces under high pressure. The types of presses vary depending on the mechanical movement when the opposing plates are compressed. This movement can be, for example, linear or radial.
The material is placed onto the fixed surface of the press. Afterward, the cutting die is positioned on the movable surface.
The cutting die
The cutting die defines the exact shape of the product being made. It is a wooden board (plywood) fitted with cutting knives made from steel. The board, into which the groove of the defined shape of the product is burned with laser is then fitted with cutting knives.
Further divisions of presses are based on their technical limits, such as:
- press surface area
- maximal press pressure
- types of accessories for effective processing of semi-finished products (boards)
The types of processed materials depend on the properties of the cutting forms and technical parameters of the cutting presses.
