What is the Foam Cutting Machine?
Foam Cutting Machine APPLICATION: polyvinyl chloride foam(EPS), polypropylene plastic foam material(EPP), XPS Extrusion board. Mainly for the industry: foundry industry, advertising industry, film and television props, packaging industry, EPS construction lines, and other industry-specific equipment.
What is CNC foam cutting machine?
The CNC foam cutter is a machine controlled by a PC computer capable of cutting any 3D objects out of extruded and expanded polystyrene foams (EPS and XPS).
Can a CNC cut foam?
CNC machines with a large enough range may be able to process plastics, foams, wood and all other materials that one may consider for their packaging needs.
Advantages Over Other Methods
When it comes to packaging, the routers, mills, cutters, etc. have a few key advantages over other types of technologies. In terms of high-speed low-volume production, these CNC machines will net far more bang for your buck as compared to injection molding and additive manufacturing, for example. While AM can be cheaper in certain instances, it is far slower and oftentimes less accurate. Packaging also needs to be consistent and uniform across the board, which routers and mills are better at.
Injection molding may only be appropriate for high volumes and can thus lead to unnecessary costs on low-volume runs. Injection molding, as the name suggests, requires a mold, which can be time-consuming (weeks or even months in certain cases). Additionally, while injection molding is cheaper in those larger volumes, the upfront costs of mold can dwarf those savings compared to routers.
Another important feature that some CNC tables have at their disposal is the ability to digitize the precise shape of the product. In this way, the eventual insert or package production is far simpler. This is especially useful in the programming of products with complex shapes.
On the other hand, it should be stated that subtractive CNC methods are not always the most appropriate way to go. Since packaging often means creating a space for the main product to lay and rest in, large products that require deeper cuts would mean more waste on the material block and more time consumption for cutting their shape through subtractive methods of production. In these cases, another method of production may be more appropriate.
Likewise, not all CNC machines are appropriate for all sorts of packaging, as we’ll cover below. Users need to know what they want from a machine and then decide which machine to get, but the best bet is with a more versatile system like a hybrid multi-purpose router that has a range of different cutting options. CNC machines with a large enough range may be able to process plastics, foams, wood and all other materials that one may consider for their packaging needs.
The Useful of CNC machining machine
The CNC machining machine adopts independent gantry design, gantry can cut benzene board materials in batches.
Processing accuracy industry first! All mounting surfaces are machined precisely to ensure accurate operation.
Cutting software CAXA and AUTOCAD drawings with full Chinese operation can be cut without scanning,coding and programming. It also has on-line simulation function. It is very convenient to use and easy to leam.
The transmission system adopts Taiwan-made ball screw and straight-line square rail, with precise transmission without clearance and low noise. It differs from other companies that generally use chains, belts or ordinary fine threaded screw rods. Its service life and precision are vastly different.
The overall design adopts the structure of large-scale NC machine tools, and the whole bed adopts the finishing milling of large-scale five-sided milling processing center to maximize the verticality and horizontality of the equipment.
All the tables are made of 20m thick high density polyester board, which is milled by the processing center again to ensure the maximum level of the tables, and marked with positioning line and center line, with minimal details.
All the control lines adopt flexible shielded cables, high wear resistance, flame retardant, super flexible and bending resistance.
The control host adopts a brand-new professional industrial computer or DSP handle.
