I have a growing need to cut parts from 2024T3 and 6061 aluminum sheet, thicknesses ranging from 0.016" to 0.100". Some parts could have on the order of 24" X 48" overall dimensions, which makes me want to explore the Maslow possibility.
I presume the issues associated with cutting aluminum revolve around feed rate and cutter rpm, true?
Are the routers being used appropriate for cutting aluminum? If higher rpm is required, couldn’t I adapt a spindle motor to fit the Maslow carriage?
Is there any reason the Maslow cannot feed at a correct rate for aluminum?
Thank you in advance,
