Operation of the CNC Tensilkut III

August 25, 2010

While there are plenty of photos of the CNC Tensilkut III, this is the first time we’ve posted video of the operation of the machine. You will have to look closely, because these samples are lined up front to back on the table, so the cutting head is moving only a minor amount on a left/right or up/down basis, and the table is moving forward and backward for cutting the length of the specimen. When the camera pans to the view of the computer screen, the red shapes indicate the uncut specimens, while the blue lines display the sample which has already been prepared.

Because the door cannot be opened while the cutting operation is in progress, we can’t give a closer view of the operation of this machine.

Tensilkut II Demonstration

To aid you in picturing the operation of the Tensilkut II, here’s a video demonstration of the cutting of a piece of 1/8″ thick aluminum from start to finish.  The footage was taken from very close range, so there are no views of the entire machine.
