4 Axis 3d Foam Carving Machine _ CNC Foam Cutting Machine
3D Foam milling machine with 4th rotary axis, has the power to machining or routing sculptures & props from EPS, Styrofoam, Polystyrene, EVA, PUR, etc.; it is also perfect for CNC modeling jobs made of wood, MDF, epoxy, foam, resin, etc. Its rotary is truly four-axis simultaneous. Based on this, it is a 4 axis foam milling machine; the 4 axes refer to X, Y, Z, and A (rotary). This structural design is the most suitable solution for sculpture or statue; because it is much more cost-effective than the 5-axis foam router.
CNC foam routing pieces are widely used for molds. The CNC foam routing machine is ideal productivity tools for routed foam pieces making, especially lost foam molds. It is designed with a high Z-axis to meet the exact production requirement of mould, foundry, or pattern. Although it is called cnc foam router machine, this does not mean that it can only machine the foam. Besides foam, it can mill wood blocks as well.

This 4 axis cnc foam router is a little special when compared with the ordinary four axis machine. The conventional 4-axis construction has two types: one is that the spindle can swing ±90 degrees; the other refers to the rotary axis. Either of the two can be called the ordinary 4-axis cnc machine. What makes this machine special is that it is actually a 2 in 1 cnc foam router as it has the two types 4 axis construction stated above. Based on this design, there is no doubt that it has more possibilities than a normal 4-axis machine. The 4 axis cnc foam router here is perfect for 3D polystyrene shapes making.
Application of Styrofoam CNC Machine
It is mainly applied to sculpturing, statue, 3D shaping, props, cnc molding industry.
Applicable Materials of CNC Foam Milling Machine
MDF, Wood, Foam, Resin, Epoxy Tooling Board, Styrofoam, Polystyrene, EPS, EVA, PUR Hard Foam, UREOL, and more.
What Is A CNC Foam Router?
CNC foam router is referring to a dedicated routing machine for giant foam, wood or aluminum workblank milling usage. Control mode is CNC (an acronym for computer, numerical and control). It should never be an enlarged version of wood router, but rather a completely different equipment built in accordance with industrial machine tool standards from mechanical architecture to electronics. From the performance point of view, it is the same as a light duty CNC gantry milling machine.
CNC foam router is often applied to industries including Mould-making (lost foam, wood foundry pattern, aluminum casting pattern, Expanded Polystyrene Mold), Custom EPS EVA Molding, 3D Polystyrene Shapes, Foam Sculpture Props & Statues, Rapid Prototyping and more.
How Many Kinds of CNC Foam Router Are There?
Well, this need to see from which perspective. From a motion axis quantity perspective, there are 3 axis, 4 axis and 5 axis cnc foam router; from application point of view, there are cnc foam router for polystyrene, for woods and for aluminum.
EPS Foam CNC Router
EPS/foam CNC router usually comes with a big working dimension for carving and cutting large-size workpieces of wood, aluminum, and styrofoam. It can also be equipped with an ATC spindle and a rotary device for complex, heavy-duty, and long-term work. It is widely used to process and carve wood and styrofoam automotive, ship or other molds, and GRG or GRC decorations, and architecture models.
Types of Foam CNC Router Machine
Foam carving machines can be divided into various types according to different functions. The following are some main foam cutting routers for sale.
4 axis ATC CNC Foam Router
This is a type of foam CNC router equipped with an automatic tool changer magazine. Added with a linear auto changer magazine or carousel auto tool changer, it can not only automatically change different tools but also complete more patterns and complex engraves. It has the advantages of fast cutting speed, low maintenance cost, high engraving accuracy, etc. Moreover, it reduces the interference of manpower, which save a lot of labor and time, as well as improves work efficiency.
5 Axis Foam CNC Router
The 5-axis foam cutting router is one of the most high-end and multi-functional CNC machines for sale. Usually, the 5 axis eps CNC router can be designed with more horizontal or vertical drilling heads or rotary axis to complete more complex projects. First of all, it has a higher Z axis, which can process most of the workpieces with a very large size and scale for helping big foam manufacturing factories. Secondly, it does not require multiple clamping when processing complex engraving. And it can be formed at only one time, which will ensure the high accuracy of the work piece and improve the processing efficiency at the same time. Thirdly, the 5 axis foam carving machine can realize more functions such as cutting, engraving, drilling, slotting, milling, carving, etc. Furthermore, it is more flexible and can realize high-precision processing of curved surface and 3D products.
