Material Lifting With Blade

Modified on: 2016-07-21 14:02:25 -0700

If you find that your material is lifting while your machine is cutting you have one of three issues.  

1. A dull blade, 

2. Your cutting speed may be too high, you may have the cutter set to apply too much pressure.

3. You are trying to cut something too small/intricate or the wrong blade for the job. 

If you are doing small/intricate cuts you should use lighter pressure, slower cut speed and a 60 degree blade. If this is an old blade try replacing it. Other things that can cause this are a buildup of adhesive and/or vinyl on the blade/holder or too much blade extending outside the blade holder. Please check out our Blade Setup Guide for further information.
