FIXTURE FOCUS 9/30/22

JT FINNERAN FIXTURE FOCUS

The Most Efficient Way to Hold Parts Securely is by Making a Dedicated Fixture Specific to Your Parts. Run Production Jobs in One Pass, Eliminate Onion Skins or Tabs. More Parts in Less Time. (Inboard Gasket CR 25 25)

This customer is putting his Dedicated Fixtures directly on top of his MDF spoilboard. With another gasket seal on the bottom, this customer was able prevent air pressure loss. This allowed him to MAX YOUR VAC and get more parts in less time.

He used our part CR 25 25 (1/4″ x 1/4″ with adhesive one side) and is thankful we were able to walk him though the concepts we have been offering 20+ years. How can we help you and your parts?

Parlor

Parlor Skis Utilizing The Versatile Surface Area of Our Tile Gasket (TG CR 06) to Cut The Core Shape of Their Snowboards.

A photo of a very happy customer of ours sent us this to demonstrate how they are utilizing our Tile Gasket material to improve their work holding on their CNC Router’s spoilboard. If you can’t hold it, you can’t cut it. Our clients around the country get more parts in less time with less waste. They can do this because we help them to MAX YOUR VAC by eliminating vacuum leak.

Anyone else having issues with part movement on your CNC router?

The videos we are creating are designed to help educate any shop having vacuum-related challenges when it comes to holding their parts. Our goal is to improve the vacuum clamping capabilities of CNC Routers, and to hold parts more securely for a higher degree in quality with less waste in both time in money. More parts in less time.

All Star CNC_ Cover Gasket

Reduce The Number of Passes it Takes to Cut Small Parts Using Cover Gasket!

Great example of how proper gasket solutions can increase productivity. In this #FixtureFriday image, we can see where customer used a non-porous fixture to make an air-tight clamp on his parts. By doing so, he eliminated the need for cutting parts in two passes. For the 300,000 parts he had to make, that was a lot of unnecessary re-cuts in our opinion. More parts in less time is possible when you can MAX YOUR VAC.

T.G.I.M!! 8-15-22

T.G.I.M.!!

If you are cutting parts of a CNC router this week, consider utilizing the benefits of All Star’s Tile Gasket material.

When applied to the surface of a porous MDF spoilboard, Tile Gasket eliminates leak from the spoilboard while at the same time creating vacuum clamp on the PART.

Come see this material in action at the #iwf2022 next week. Get more quality parts in less time as so many All Star CNC customers have done over the last 20+ years.

Fixture Friday!!

Great use of All Star CNC’s Tile Gasket by this Laguna Tools customer. Tile Gasket minimizes vacuum leak on a porous MDF spoilboard by covering the working surface area with gasket, which maximizes vacuum performance. This customer was able to essentially make a Dedicated Fixture in a fraction of the time. Now he is getting more parts in less time off of his router and is very happy that he found us.

CNC Collaboration with CR Onsrud

A big “THANK YOU” goes out to the team at CR Onsrud, Inc. for hosting All Star CNC and Head Coach Mike Murphy in town a few months back.

          We were asked to collaborate on some videos together, designed to educate customers on the importance of gasket and how crucial it is in getting the maximum performance out of a CNC Router’s vacuum table. They have amazing routers being made there in Troutman, NC capable of amazing things. So don’t let a leaky spoilboards or vacuum tables be the weak-link in terms of what size/speed/performance your router is capable of. Our Gaskets create an air-tight clamping environment, making more parts in less time. MAX YOUR VAC with All Star CNC Gasket Products.

CR Onsrud will be at #iwf2022 in a few weeks. Be sure to stop by and see what they have to offer!

All Star CNC Products will also be attending #iwf2022 in a few weeks. Come say hi and meet Head Coach Mike Murphy!

If you plan to cut parts on your CNC router this week, remember…

If you are having trouble holding your parts properly somebody may tell you that you need to upgrade to a larger vacuum pump on your CNC vacuum table. That same person may tell you that if your ice cream is melting, that you’ll need a stronger, more powerful freezer. Upgrading either will cost money.  Not just the cost of initial upgrade, but the increase cost of additional electricity consumption as well.  We here at All Star CNC Products say, before upgrading your vacuum pump (or your freezer for that matter), make sure that all of your seals are preventing leak.

Vacuum pressure leak is why vacuum tables can’t hold parts.  The proper gasket material is essential to holding parts.  An air-tight system holds parts firmly in place, allowing to cut more parts in less time.  MAX YOUR VAC with All Star CNC Products, your ONLY solution to CNC gasket.

Comes see us at #iwf2022 in Atlanta, booth B6524 to learn more about how we have been helping our customers maximize their vacuum performance for over two decades.     #allstarcnc #cncgasket #cncrouter #spoilboard

 

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.
