Processing instructions for KAPA® lightweight boards
  • Use a cutting mat as an underlay
  • Mark out the size to be cut
Manual cutting:

Position a steel or aluminium straight edge, pressing down to prevent slippage.
Cut in a smooth, continuous motion along the straight edge, (keeping the cutting blade as flat as possible).
Multiple passes may be necessary, especially on boards of 5mm thickness and more.

Cutting with a vertical or table cutting unit:

Set up the cutting guide precisely and at 90°. The material holder and the cutting head are then moved, either manually or electrically
