EGX350 tooling

Post by label everything » Wed Feb 11, 2015 7:49 pm

Could anyone please offer any advice or know of any literature regarding the different engraving tooling listed for the Roland EGX350?

I purchased one last year along with a variety of tooling, but I really don't have much idea of what each tool is for or what settings I need to use for each tool.

I have mainly only scribed plates but I need to start engraving deeper into brass.

Thank you for your time.

Hello Simon,

You can get a data sheet explaining tooling, feed rates etc from our support pages, as well as PDF of the user manual if you need it.

HERE

With deep engraving into brass, you would need to think about what diameter of tool you need. If you use a small diameter cutter to engrave a large area, it takes time and would wear the tool out, if you use a tool large tool it may not get into the detail that you need to engrave. So it is a trade off or sorts.

If you want to look at some training speciffically, then I would recommend you contact your dealer for some more training.

Thank you Andrew, that is a great start, the problem I have is I bought the 350 from a different state and the people I purchased it from are asking a large amount to fly up and for accommodation for training.

Once I get my head around a few of the cutters I will be right, it's just knowing the correct cutter for what material and what settings to use in engrave studio.

Thank you again for your help on this.

Simon

Hi Simon,

Sometimes travel and hotel expenses for the trainer are not considered, even here in the UK.

If you have any questions, just come back here and I'm sure one of us will be able to point you in the right direction.

With regards to the Engrave Studio software, you can create your own tooling so you don't need to worry too much about what is already there.

It looks to me that your cutter is to big and your spacing between the characters is to close. Also when your machine is engraving do you use a lubricant, between the brass plate and the cutter? If not keep a little bit of paraffin in a spray bottle and apply before and during the engraving. It will prolong the sharpness of your cutter If you want to send me an email feel free to contact me.

All the best....Legin
