Device Manual: Cutting Depths

Circumstances may vary, but a cutting speed of 60 mm/s is a recommended baseline speed for better cutting quality. Start there and increase the speed to find a balance between cut-time and acceptable cut-quality.

Small Increases in cut-time will not save much time off the overall process since the cut-length of the device is no too long and the majority of time templates cut, will be small.

Generally, printable films are for decoration. These are normally 2 layered vinyl or other material hence the recommended 200g cut pressure (as per the table below). On the other hand, a blade level of 6 is enough for the screen protector films, which are normally is 3 layer substrate.

A pressure of 300g and blade level of 6 is perfect for protector films.
