Custom jigs are very useful when cutting and/or engraving multiple identical workpieces. Used in tandem with the ability to save job parameters in JobControl®, you can quickly and accurately process large workpiece volumes.
To ensure that your measurements are as precise as possible, we suggest using a caliper to measure the workpiece for which you are creating the jig.
Create your own jig design or use our template (below). Send the file to JobControl® using the Print settings below.
NOTE: The parameters might vary depending on your specific laser system and its wattage.
|Process mode||Resolution||Cut line|
Depending on the material that you are planning to use for your jig, make sure to use the appropriate processing parameters. The settings specified below were used to cut 1/8" TroGlass Color Gloss.
The following factors are also key to obtaining the best results:
|Color||Process||Power (%)||Speed (%)||ppi/Hz|
We used standard TroGlass processing parameters from Trotec's JobControl® database.
Remove the sticker from to expose the adhesive backing on the TroGlass sheet. Then affix the two sheets together to complete the jig.
You may use glue if you are using materials without an adhesive backings.
- If you are creating kits, you can make jigs with spaces for different parts
- Create drawer liners using Trotec's laser-safe foam
