CUTTING TRIALS

All specimens detailed were cut in 11 hours on Sharp And Tappin`s latest generation CPS 1000 composite plate saw, with all specimens being found to be within ±0.05mm of the set dimensions with side to side parallelism of better than 0.05mm and edge finishes that were suitable to test without any additional preparation. All specimens were machined from 600mm x 600mm flat laminates.
