    Professionally cutting of acrylic

    PyraSied specializes in cutting acrylics (Plexiglas) and other plastics to size. We can cut plastic sheets, tubes and rods to size for free with exquisite precision. We have 8 sawing machines (vertical, horizontal, computer-controlled, cross-cut and wall saws), which means we can deliver cut-to-size plastics very quickly.

    The largest saw has a capacity of 4000x2000mm and can handle thicknesses up to 120mm. Other thicknesses can be cut to size on request.

    Cutting quality of PyraSied

    We have various sawing machines that are each suitable for separate cutting fabrications. We have 2 CNC (computer-controlled) sawing machines, 4 wall saws and 2 altendorf sawing machines (table saws). The maximum size and thickness are depending on the selected sawing machine. The maximum dimensions can be found in the frequently asked questions. The edges of the sawn plastic sheets are always fairly rough, it has a sawing stroke. Sawn sheets are not supplied burr-free as standard. The edges can be sanded and polished for a glossy, smooth edge finish. This gives the best result.

    If there are any wishes regarding edge finishing, we would like to hear this in advance. We ensure that an end product is delivered that meets your wishes. Keep in mind that there are additional costs associated with additional operations such as sanding and polishing the material.

    Frequently Asked Questions
    What information do you need to prepare a quote?

    PyraSied provides fabrications for all professional customers who use our materials in their idea or project. It is possible to request a personal quote through our sales department (sales@pyrasied.nl). To prepare a suitable offer, we need the following information:

    • The chosen material and the required thickness
    • Desired edge-finishing
    • Dimensions and amount
    • A digital drawing or example with shapes and sizes (.dwg, .dxf, .ai)

    Our sales staff will then proceed with the request. To speed up the process, we would like to receive what the wishes are as extensively as possible. Our sales department usually answers all incoming requests within 48 hours. Every customer receives a personal quote.

    How long does it take to receive a quote?

    Our sales department usually answers within 48 hours on workdays.

    What is the edge finish of sawn plastic sheets?

    The edges of the sawn plastic sheets are always fairly rough, it always has a sawing stroke. Sawn sheets are not supplied burr-free as standard. The edges can be polished for a glossy, smooth edge finish. This gives the best result.

    How long does it take before my material can be sawn?

    We can cut our material to size very quickly. Normally, we cut the materials within one day from the moment we receive the order. There are no additional costs associated with cutting acrylics to size.

    What are the maximum sizes of your CNC saw?

    Maximum sheet size: 4000x2000mm
    Maximum thickness: up to 120 mm

    This sawing machine is fully computer-controlled and can, therefore, be fabricated with high accuracy. This sawing machine is mainly used for large-scale projects.

    What are the maximum sizes of your wall saw?

    Maximum sheet size: 3000x2000mm
    Maximum thickness: up to 15 mm

    What are the maximum sizes of your Altendorf/table saw?

    Maximum sheet size: 1000x1000mm
    Maximum thickness: depending on the project

    Suitable for small-scale sawing operations. With an Altendorf saw, it is possible to saw at an angle (mitre saw) of for example 45 degrees.

    I would like to cut your material to size by myself. Do you have tips for me?

    Yes, we have a number of special cutting tips:

    • When cutting, leave the protective film on both sides of the sheet
    • Always wear safety glasses when cutting
    • You can saw cast acrylic easily with a circular saw or table saw and a jigsaw (similar to wood)
    • It is better to machine extruded acrylic only with a circular saw or table saw because it breaks faster than cast acrylic
    • Ensure that the entire sheet is supported well and flat
    • Be careful not to feed the thin sheets too quickly to prevent cracks and breakage

    Cutting with a hand saw

    For simple work, an iron saw with a tooth spacing of about half the material thickness can be used. It works better with cast material than with extruded material.

    Cutting with a circular saw

    Two types of saw blades are used for circular saws. Namely with a tooth of hard material (HM) and with a tooth with high-speed steel (HSS). The results achieved are dependent on the stability of the saw, the geometry of the saw blade and the engine speed. We use hard metal sheets with a ‘daktand’ and large free-range corners. The saw tooth slopes slightly backwards. the diameter of 300mm is widely used. The recommended speed is 3200 revolutions per minute. For manual circular saws, a 200mm saw diameter is widely used. In that case, the speed is 4800 revolutions per minute. A saw blade usually has between 60 and 90 teeth.

    Cutting with a band saw

    The great advantage of band sawing is that you can cut according to curved lines. The saw cut is only less beautiful and accurate. The post-processing of this cutting method can be time-consuming. The saw is mainly used for prototypes and for thick block material. All band saws that have a speed of 15 to 25 per second can be used. Cooling is recommended! Band saws are usually having change-gear toothing and a 90-degree cutting angle. At a thickness of less than 15mm, we recommend using a saw with about 5 teeth per centimetre and with thicker material 4 teeth per centimetre.

    Cutting with a jigsaw

    A jigsaw is similar to a band saw. Here too, you can cut curved lines. However, because the saw blade does not run around but goes up and down, the danger of hot running is much greater. It is advisable to always do a test to determine the correct speed, given time range and material thickness. Cooling is important. It is also essential to put the saw machine in the correct position, never in a shuttle movement.
