Tab generation: If you cut materials with the conveyor feeder, tabs need to be applied on the object to be cut. It is helpful that the cutting parts do not fall out and interfere with the conveyor feeder. Or the device may work exceptionally.

Generate:

  • By number: sets the number of tabs to generate tabs
    • Number of tabs: sets the number of tabs of the object to be processed. The range is from 2 to 50. If the outline of the object is long, it is recommended that you apply more tabs to it.
  • By spacing: sets the distance between tabs to generate tabs
    • Tab spacing: the spacing between tabs of the object to be processed. The range is from 10mm to 1000mm.

Tab size: sets the tab size of the object to be processed. The range is from 0.2mm to 1mm.

If the material to be processed is thick and heavy, it is recommended that you adjust the tab size to 1mm.

Tab cut power: sets the tab cut power of the object to be processed. The range is from 0% to 90%.

It is recommended that you set it only when cutting ultra-thick materials.

 

⚠️ Attention:

  • Generally, there is no need to set the tab cut power. However, if you cut ultra-thick objects, setting matched power helps the cutting objects to be removed easily.
  • Please note that once the tab cut power is set (higher than 0%), the object can't be previewed on the preview page. Therefore, if you need to set the tab cut power, set the number of tabs and tab size first. Preview the object before adjusting the tab cut power and then start processing.
