Proper table selection
Cutting table selection is another factor to consider when trying to achieve superior cutting results with acrylic, and there are several versions to consider depending on your application size. We suggest using the acrylic slat cutting table or the acrylic cutting grid table, again, dependent on the material size for your application.
The acrylic slat cutting table is well suited for cutting thicker acrylic sheets (6 mm or greater) as well as for parts that are cut greater than 100 mm because it will prevent kick-back. Typically, smaller parts can be unstable or tip, and are not suitable for the design of this specific table.
When working with parts less than 100 mm, the acrylic cutting grid table and/or the acrylic grid overlay on the vacuum table will offer the best cutting results, because they allow for flat positioning. With that being said, this work area is only recommended for cutting acrylic up to 8 mm thick, otherwise, the alternative version should be used.

|Acrylic slat cutting table ||Acrylic sheets up to 6 mm thick ||Parts that are cut wider than 100 mm |
|Acrylic grid cutting table ||Acrylic sheets under 8 mm thick ||Parts that are cut smaller than 100 mm |
