here is a foil stamping die I made with my nomad
Tools: 1/8 two-flute carbide end mill (First roughing pass) 1/16 two-flute carbide end mill (second roughing pass to get the little details). Nomad #302 60 degree V cutter (finish pass)
magnesium is much more forgiving than aluminum or brass. Speeds and feeds are about two to three times faster than aluminum settings, and step overs were all 50% of the tool diameter.
This project took a total of three and a half hours to complete. it is now producing product on the factory line.
I consider this a very big win for my little Nomad, as well as for myself!!!
