5.3 CNC Beam Saw

Considerations

  • Pre-Operation Checklist is a prerequisite for ANY operation.
  • Tool/Machine Manufacturer's safety rules and guidelines are followed.
  • Tooling requirements are reviewed and appropriate tooling on the machine verified.
  • Operator does not reach into the machine processing area while the machine is in operation.
  • Stock is held securely.
  • Operator clears machine and cleans work area after use.
  • Required OSHA approved personal protective equipment is worn.
  • Lock-out/Tag-out procedure is in place and followed by everyone.
  • Process is completed in a timely manner.

Pre-Operation Checklist

Performance Standard -

Level 1

  • Verifies machine is properly guarded and safety mechanisms are in place and operating.
  • Demonstrates knowledge of and proper use of all machine specific controls.
  • Verifies air-bearing surface is operating properly.
  • Inspects material positioning clamps for proper conditioning and operation.
  • Inspects material for nails, staples or foreign materials before processing.
  • Demonstrates proper loading and unloading of materials.
  • Verifies scrap and offcuts are removed from the machine prior to processing material.

Level 2

  • Selects machine operation functions and options.
  • Selects and installs tooling to meet machining specifications.
  • Inspects cutting beam and/or apparatus for proper function.
  • Meets Level 1 performance standard.

5.3.1 - Cut Panel Product (wood veneer or synthetic overlay on any substrate)

Level 1

Given panel material and machine set up and ready to cut, cut material to size using preset program.
Performance Standard -
  • Dimension tolerance is ±0.4 mm (1/64") [0.0156"] in length and width across entire part
  • Angle of cross-cut is 90º to the edge
  • Angle of cut is 90º to the face
  • Cut surfaces exhibit uniform saw marks with minimal burn marks
  • Cut is free of tear-out and surface chipping

Level 2

Given panel material, machine, and a target size, program saw to safely cut material to size.
  • Meets Level 1 performance standard

5.3.2 - Cut Multi-layer Panel Product (wood veneer or synthetic overlay on any substrate)

Level 1

Given panel material and machine set up and ready to cut, cut multiple layers of material to size using a preset program.
Performance Standard -
  • Dimension tolerance is ±0.4 mm (1/64") [0.0156"] in length and width across all parts
  • Angle of cross-cut is 90º to the edge
  • Angle of cut is 90º to the face
  • Cut surfaces exhibit uniform saw marks with minimal burn marks
  • Cut is free of tear-out and surface chipping

Level 2

Given panel material, machine, and a target size, program saw to safely cut multiple layers of material to size.
  • Meets Level 1 performance standard
