What materials can Nomad cut?
Because the Nomad has a rigid frame and DC brushless spindle, it’s designed to accurately cut in materials up through the hardness of non-ferrous alloys such as brass and even aerospace grade aluminum. Some examples of materials that are appropriate include:
Hardwoods such as: Maple, Ash, Basswood, Birch, Cherry, Walnut, Poplar, and Oak
Softwoods such as Pine, Cedar, Balsa and Fir
Plastics such as ABS, Delrin (Acetal), Polycarbonate (PC), Acrylic (PMMA), Nylon, HDPE, LDPE, PP, PET, and PVC, Polyethylene and Polyurethanes
Synthetics & composites such as Renshape and other Polyurethane resins with fillers, as well as foams
Metals such as copper, brass, and aluminum, to include 6061 and 7075 alloys for example.
With the use of coolants, harder metals such as Titanium and Steel alloys and some stainless steel alloys have also been machined with the Nomad Pro.
