How to use Slim System
Extend the guides to fit the length of the piece.
Once set for the desired cutting, place the pads, trying to cover as much surface as possible with an equal distance between them to ensure the correct setting. Now we can handle and transport the pieces “Slim” safely. The suction pads will make sure that the cut will be perfectly straight. With the scratch, you can start from either end, always putting more emphasis on both of the ends.
Once the scratch has been made, you will move the piece, cantilever, and press lightly with tongs until you see the piece open. It is then necessary to try to separate the entire piece, only opening slightly. Repeat this step on both ends and then using lateral pressure, completely remove the entire piece.
