I finished the assembly and alignment for at least two months. The panel box is small but, everything is working.
Despite the warnings, I set up the frequency inverter inside the panel, did several tests and still had no problems.

Cutting corian®, some images about cut quality.
The cut is slightly serrated, the results are satisfactory for the cutting of wood in general. The groove in the picture is 6x3mm.
