HOW IT WORKS

In*Board

If you are looking to make dedicated spoilboards for long-term repetitive use, All*Star’s in-board gasketing is the product that makes the most sense.  In-board gasketing, while requiring a bit more programming and set-up time to produce, offers customers a more consistent, longer lasting fixture.

To create a dedicated spoilboard, customers route channels for gasketing to lay into directly to the inside of the tool path that will be used to create the part.


HOW TO SET UP A DEDICATED BOARD   

  •     One additional channel is created just to the inside of the tool path.
  •     The sealant is placed in this channel at roughly a 3(in)-to-1(above) ratio.
  •     Vacuum channels are created from a source to distribute the vacuum flow.
  •     The gasketing recesses into the channel when the vacuum is engaged bringing material flush against the spoilboard and lock in the seal.

 

ADVANTAGES OF DEDICATED FIXTURES   

  •     Longer life cycle for both the fixtures and the tooling
  •     Quicker line speed = more cycles/hour
  •     Higher spindle speeds = Better “finished edge”
  •     No interference with the Z-Axis
  •     Lower cost of labor
