EPS foam cutting - multiple wire foam cutter - FC5555 CNC foam cutter
With an 8020 extruded aluminum rod on which we mounted 3 wires
By adding 2 more wires (total of 3) we can triple the throughput of the machine
Another video of a multiple wire foam cutter - same machine cutting the 3M
Logo out of EPP foam, 3 wires means 3 times the amount of foam that
can be cut in a given time
The below video shows our larger machine - the FCX848 cutting multiple shapes
Same CNC foam cutter cutting a different shape running at 25"/min
Cutting 1LB EPS foam
Foam coating process -
1st step is to cut the shape
2nd step is to cover the EPS foam with an adhesive mesh
3rd step is to coat the foam with "foamtite"
EPS foam shredder - So much foam left over - what to do ?
We have a few shredders, all of the foam that is left over is
shredded and placed in bags, then we send it back to the
factory to be mixed with the raw material to make new foam blocks More on EPS foam shredders

Polyurethane foam cutter - Polyurethane foam should not be cut with hot wire
The way to cut polyurethane is with a blade or an abrasive wire.
There are two types of Polyurethane CNC foam cutters.
1 Blade type - very expensive - about $50,000 and up - runs very fast
1 Abrasive wire - not expensive - about $25,000 runs slower
Here is our CNC Polyurethane foam in action

What I do for fun
We took a GWS tigermoth and strapped a Casio Exlim camera to its side
And flew it over the Baylands park in Sunnyvale CA
Simple way to get rid of EPS foam - cut to size and try to
give away :-)
We call it a home made EPS foam recycler
