CNC hot wire foam cutter

What is it?

This is a computer-controlled hot wire foamcutter. You can do a bunch of cool things with it. It really is cool because it is easy to use and doesn't require maintenance at all.

The titanium cutting wire heats up and it cuts, or to be exact: melts the polystyrene. You can basically prepare your plans in any vectorgrafical software and the machine will process that with its own software. That's it, job done.

Manufacturing is also a piece of cake.

You can produce attractive illuminated signs with the sole use of plain polystyrene Or simple, painted letter for indoors or outdoors Wedding? Not a problem.

You don't need a lot of space for this, just put it in the corner and you are good to go. The clamp can be adjusted so that most XPS and EPS boards on the market can be used.
