Cutting Styrofoam for beginners and new beginnings

Don't be fooled by the compact size of this Styrofoam and Styrodur cutting machine. Advertising technicians, font designers and advert designers all love the CUT 1610S, because it cuts letters, lettering and logos as if they were cast in one piece (monolithic). And anybody wanting to cut individual Styrofoam packaging will also very much appreciate the very small footprint of this machine. But that doesn't mean that our "little one" can't pack a punch: this gem can cut up to 1,300 mm thick Styrofoam or Styrodur stacks in just one step. These strengths as well as the competetive price are just a few of the reasons, why you should take a closer look at the model 1600 series.

Have a look at the highlights!

The agile weasel in our machine zoo

CUT 1610S series are as agile

The Styrofoam cutting machines of the CUT 1610S series are as agile as weasel when it comes to circling curves and maneuvering around delicate objects. They work independently in four cutting axes. Interlaced cutting allows for complex 3D objects such as truncated cones or mounts. This is why these compact machines are so popular with creative designers and manufacturers of delicate structures and products. From cake dummies to patterns and specialty packaging as well as artistic symbols and crown moldings - the sky is the limit of what is possible with these materials and machines.

CUT 1610S also very flexible

Get started immediately

For the production of simple Styrodur or Styrofoam boards is the CUT 1610S also very flexible. Whenever needed, the machine will even trim the cutting edges. This way you will be able to cut two thinner 40 mm panels from a 100 mm thick board.

The open working table can easily be loaded from all sides and is suitable for EPS or XPS blocks of up to 1,250 x 650 x 1,300 mm in size. And the tough torsion-resistant, painted steel frame can take a lot of abuse, which is exactly what commercial customers need.

Start immediately, add extensions later

CUT1600S - flexible <a title=wire length" width="600">

First and foremost, you should find the hot wire cutting machine that is right for you - meaning, one that offers you the complete solution all in one, like the CUT 1600S series. We deliver the units ready to use, which means that apart from the working table you don't have to assemble or mount anything. In the meantime, someone else could potentially install the software on your Windows PC and connect the controls and power supply. From the time of the delivery to your first production should not take longer than 20 minutes overall.

The power is in the software

Just like a PC needs an operating system, the Styrofoam cutting machine needs smart software. Even the best hardware is pretty much useless, if the calculation of the cutting data takes up way too much time and effort in the first place. And only a very sophisticated control will ultimately produce the perfect product.

The CUT 1600S model series comes with all control programs that will match your individual applications. You might be surprised, just how easily the software will transform your CAD data into the cutting data. We will be happy to show you a live demonstration of how simply these machines are to use. We are convinced that you won't find this kind of comfort anywhere else.

At the limit - and going further

For model builders we offer the CUT 1600S with the same cutting device, but without the machine table. You can mount the independent units at the distance you desire on a separate working table.

In addition to these versions and many advantages, the compact build of the 1600 model series does have its limits. What it can not do are Styrofoam blocks in the standard size 1,250 x 1,050 x 1,250 or longer. Also large Styrodur boards (3,100 x 1,050 x 120 mm) are unfortunately not within the realm of the 1600 series. For such monoliths we have developed the much bigger CUT 2500S series. It's well worth taking a look at this bigger sister of the 1600 series.

CUT 1600S - Features

The CUT 1600S comes with the label industrial quality "Made in Germany". This is apparent in every detail, such as the sturdy machine table made from welded and painted square section steel. You can find out more about these and other features here:

The open machine table, which is constructed from welded steel profiles, is extremely sturdy. Even very large and bulky Styrofoam blocks are easily loaded into this machine. On request, we will also deliver the table with a sturdy cover plate. The working area is the size of 1,300 x 1,300 mm and suitable for standard EPS, XPS or EPP boards.

The monitor display, keyboard and mouse have been integrated into the Styrofoam cutting machine. This makes the 1600 series even more compact. This way, you won't need a separate control unit or a working table. Our tip: accessorize the basic model with the "Touchscreen Package". This extra is a monitor display that reacts to the pressure of your fingers, which enable the user to use the machine intuitively. It is being said that this method prevents typing errors.

On the CUT 1600S, a coil spring controls the tension of the cutting wire. You will receive a stiff and a softer spring from us. The first one should be used for parallel cuts. With 4 axes cuts the wire length may vary up to 250 mm, which is why we recommend the softer spring type. Thanks to these springs, the wire can be easily disengaged and re-engaged, which not only simplifies the process, but also speeds up especially working with s.

The challenge: You want to cleanly cut two thinner panels from one thick board. At the same time, the excess edge should be removed. The solution: The CUT 1600S only requires the cutting wire to trim cuts of any thickness. Everything else is done by the smart software.

Is easily done, because the cutting wire can be disengaged and re-engaged very easily. This way, cutouts in closed shapes such as the letter O can be cut without any entry or exit "cutting wounds".

The open, modular setup of the CUT 1600S simplifies the maintenance. We recommend to clean and grease (lightly) the Styrofoam cutting machine regularly. Replacing the cutting wire of the CUT 1600S can be done when needed. We deliver the wire on a spool, which means that you can adjust the wire according to your specific needs and requirements.

The wire in your CUT 1600S always has the correct temperature to cleanly cut Styrofoam, Styrodur or polyurethane foams. This is due to the sophisticated power supply, because it contains a microprocessor that controls the electricity, especially when the wire length changes during interlaced cutting. The minicomputer also automatically reacts to fluctuations in the supply voltage, which guarantees every cut to go through the material like a hot knife through butter.

The CUT 1600S was especially developed for the of EPS, XPS and EPP foams. Also boards made from light PU foam, PE, PP and other foams can be cut with the CNC hot wire cutting machine.

The multiCut Software simplifies the cut of EPS and XPS panels or blocks dramatically. The program imports the 2D contours in DXF format and within a few seconds calculates the finished 2D and 3D cutting data. You can upload the G-codes either via the network or from a USB stick into the machine. The CNC software of the unit will then do all the work and calculate and process the numerical control data all by itself.

The separation between the calculation of the cutting data and the process of actually cutting the material has one definitive advantage: The CUT 1600S can proceed with the execution of the previous project, whilst you set up the next cut. multiCut supports the creation of 4 axes programs for one wire. When cutting complete blocks, the software also allows nesting, which optimizes the use of the material and cuts down on waste.

StyroCAM is "Software as a Service", which means that it is a cloud based software. All it needs is a modern browser, such as Internet Explorer, Firefox or Chrome, which enables the software to run on all Windows as well as Mac computers.

The proof is in the pudding
