Bevel Cutting Basics

While there is no substitute for bevel cutting experience, a programmer can follow these steps to help ensure success:

  • Start with straight cutting on a specific thickness, then ask yourself if the edge quality is acceptable. If not, adjust the feed rate.
  • Ask if the internal and external features are dimensionally correct. If needed, adjust the kerf.
  • Start the bevel cutting with a simple top knife bevel. Adjust the kerf, output angle, and feed rate if needed.
  • Begin working with other types of bevels, such as top land, bottom land, X, K, and variable. After each, adjust the kerf, output angle, and feed rate if necessary.

Tech Tip

Those familiar with bevel cutting might be interested to learn how to apply corner loops. SigmaTEK’s own Jacob Diefenbacher demonstrates how quickly (less than 2 minutes) and easily (even Jacob can do it) this can be done using SigmaNEST.

Watch this short tutorial video to learn how.
