There are a few acrylic manual cutting methods by which we can achieve the best results. Nevertheless, before utilizing any of these methods to cut acrylic sheeting in order to create the finest acrylic products, it is necessary to first evaluate the length and thickness of the acrylic sheets as this will indicate which approach will work best. We may use many of the same tools that we would use to cut wood in acrylic manual cutting. The most common hand tools used in acrylic cutting are table saws, routers, scoring tools, hand saws, jig saws, and band saws. Based on your requirements and product detailings, the acrylic fabricators decide by which tool they should provide the acrylic services.
The majority of people prefer to use a hand saw to cut acrylic. When compared to electrical saws, this technique requires more attention. It is recommended that you use a saw with consistent teeth to get the highest performance.
Use a scoring tool that produces a deep scratch rather than the chipping impression that a hardened wheel would produce for acrylic sheets thinner than 14 inches. Although this technique is time-consuming compared to other methods, it can yield precise results, that are too devoid of the risk of heavy-duty equipment.
A jigsaw is a small portable instrument that can abruptly cut a sheet with a straight blade by moving it up and down. It is the perfect tool for non-linear cutting that involves curves and angular forms.
Routers are employed to cut both curved and straight plexiglass pieces. We can employ a table saw to cut multiple acrylic sheets simultaneously.
