Fun Friday!

As IWF draws near once again we like to take a look at how much progress we’ve made over the last year.

We are always trying to improve vacuum performance and help CNC owners and operators MAX YOUR VAC.

This year we will be show casing our Tile Gasket which we’ve developed over the last year to increase vacuum surface area on MDF and other porous spoilboards. Excellent for Custom jobs, Nesting Programs, and Short Run applications.

Throw back to how funny our booth looked at the 2018 IWF show Pre-Covid. Come check us out this year and see how much progress we’ve made over the last 4 years, we’ll be show casing demos on our mini vacuum table using gasket.

EDUCATIONAL SESSIONS

Increase CNC Router Performance by Improving Vacuum w/ Gasketing Products & Techniques

Tuesday, August 23  1:00 PM – 2:30 PM

When it comes to holding parts on a CNC Router, vacuum is the most common (and often only) method being used today.  With that being the case, why not maximize a vacuum’s performance if vacuum is the ONLY thing holding parts?

Shops will source everything from which router to invest in, to software, to tooling, to material, to employees and customers.  But when it comes time to actually cutting parts fast and effectively, was the router able to do it, yes or no?  If parts are too small, or onion skins or tabs are needed, or feed rates are painfully slow, or material is being wasted, or time is being wasted on re-setting up, than we need to improve the vacuum’s performance by eliminating leak.  Gasket products and solutions are the only way to improve a vacuum system’s performance.

In this session, you will learn how to eliminate vacuum pressure loss.  Users who hold parts better, make more parts in less time.  Whether it is small parts or large, production runs or custom work, wood or plastic, big vacuum systems or small, the same science always applies to eliminate vacuum pressure loss and we do this with gasketing products and techniques.

FIXTURE FOCUS

 

Part Hold Down, Dedicated Fixture

InBoard Gasket Dedicated Fixture for Production Run Parts

     This month’s Fixture Of The Month is from a customer that was was having difficulty holding these small, plastic parts on this spoilboard.  Using our In-Board Gasket Solutions, they got away from a spoilboard and instead created in-house a Dedicated Fixture to make an air-tight set-up.  Using InBoard Gasket from All Star, they were very successful in making more parts in less time after this was completed.

Weekly Recap, 2022 Week 28

All Star CNC Products Weekly Recap 7/11-7/15

Some of this week’s highlights in the world of Gasket and CNC routers. As always, we look to improve vacuum performance when it comes holding products and cutting small parts.

 

This week we have added and introduced 11 new clients to gaskets as a method to improve their holding capabilities with their CNC routers.

 

Our Tile Gaskets continue to be a popular seller when it comes to Nested Base Manufacturing and custom design to optimize vacuum clamping without a dedicated fixture.

 

Mike has been preparing his presentation for the International Woodworking Fair in Atlanta and we are excited to unveil some new products that have been in research and development over the last year.

 

We continue to build up our inventory to ensure all orders can be filled and shipped the same day. Making it easier for customers to receive their products in a timely manner without manufacturing delays.

 

Look out for our monthly News Letter where we will be showing off our “Fixture of the Month” and give brief introductions to the different styles and uses of dedicated and fabricated fixtures. Including guitar manufacturing, custom signs, and cabinetry parts.
