Dust clean up on cnc7/30
Hey everyone , looking to see / hear some of the ways you clean up the remainder of dust the Cnc dust collection leaves behind . I think the same as everyone it's worse when doing ply or mdf panels . I usually leave an onion skin and go back and cut a small amount and this helps with dust . I was thinking of buying a small stand alone dust collector and putting a 3" or 4" hose on it with a wand to vacuum up in between panels .
Any pictures or comments on how you do it would be great!
Although I was skeptical at first, I use an Airpro collet nut. Makes a huge difference.
On the down side, it can pick up small pieces and use them to put interesting burn marks on the sheet.....
Age old problem, with many solutions depending on what you want. I have always considered production to be first, get the parts cut and I will clean the floor at the end of the shift. that being said I have tried the vacuum/fan toolholder nuts with some success but always revert back to run the program, remove the parts. I have a separate blower that is connected into the main saw dust system to vacuum the board, this has a wide 16" nozzle. Some times I will just blow it off and go. Have to blow of the machine and clean the floor anyways might as well make parts when I can. I don't stress on the mess till the end of the shift.
I just purchased a pre owned machine that has a Nilfisk vacuum as part of the package. I will be interested to see how that works to pick up the extra dust from the table
