The CNC hot wire cutting machine CUT 2900S is a true powerhouse and can pull off 1,000 mm3 sized insulation blocks for pitched and sloped roofs like a real working horse. Controlled by the computer, this gem will position the 0.3 mm thick cutting wire at the speed of 6,000 mm/min. into the required position. The wire will cut around two boards per minute out of the 1 cubic-meter block (2,000 mm/min.) of Styrofoam or Styrodur. However, with the optional Blockslicer this workhorse will multiply this feat and cut even more boards within the same time.
Most and foremost, any provider of any polystyrene cut objects needs that one hardworking machine to guarantee commercial success. Obviously, the larger output of how many boards and other simple shapes can be cut at a time do play a significant role in this. This is why manufacturers of sloped roofs as well as those working with polystyrene in the building material industry or insulation providers appreciate a strong and reliable workhorse like this one. And if quality comes before quantity, then the owner of this machine can really show what they are capable of.
Imagine this: You not only have one very strong work horse, but instead you own a whole team of ten horses. This is pretty much how the CUT 2900S works, when the Blockslicer cuts 11 boards in one big swoop with its ten wires - simultaneously! Now, that is almost magical.
Especially for insulation wedges, ridge or valley panels and similar 2D shapes, a Styrofoam cutting machine must be able to cut any types of angles perfectly. With its two independent y-axes, the CUT 2900S manages even extremely interlaced cuts on block lengths of up to 5 meters. Here, the Styrofoam blocks are literally being "filleted" with a useable wire length of maximum 1,450 mm.Contact
Whenever you compare CNC hot wire cutting machines, don't look at the cutting wires - they look the same everywhere. The deciding factor, whether a Styrofoam cutting machine is really up to its job or not, is its software. This is the brain of the machine and it will calculate the cutting data, whilst other modules control and monitor the entire process all the way to the final product. Hence the reason, why we will provide you with the comprehensive software package that fits your specific requirements and applications.
At first glance you won't even notice what a powerhouse this software really is and all the things it's capable of, because it is so easy to use. You will also receive the corresponding interfaces for the import and export of your files and data. This will enable you to implement many proven programs with your core software. Have a look at what the CUT 2900S software has to offer:
The strength of this CAD program is that drawings in vector format can created quick and easily. The DXF export enables immediate processing for further use
Cloud based software for the calculation of pricing for letters, logos, lettering, objects, painted or unpainted, coatings or Plexiglas
Internet based cloud software (SaaS) to create numerical control data for standard sloped panels according to the blueprint (gradient roof plan).
Cloud based software (SaaS) to calculate numerical control data for standard 2D objects with and without entry and exit cuts.
Just like most of our services, this software is also cloud based (SaaS). It calculates symmetric rotational cutting data from 2D DXF or PLT files.
Cloud based software (SaaS) to create numerical control data for horizontal standard 2D rotational cuts.
It's not only the producers of pitched and sloped roofs, who are saying that the CUT 2900S is the complete package. With its optional extensions, this model series can also be equipped for additional current and future tasks. This workhorse comes with its sturdy and all around open working table as wells as its five meter long vertical working surface. Advertising technicians are raving about this model that was seemingly designed specifically for them with the higher machine table (800 mm). With such variety you might ask: What else is possible?
Even bigger machines than our 2000 models come in the series CUT 3000S and CUT 4000S. The first is our fastest and most universal workhorse that is also capable of cutting ridge turrets as well as artistic and ornate "pirouettes". The biggest "and badest" is our mammoth in our machine park - 4000 series. This is literally the highest performing power package for industrial and commercial clients, who produce large quantities of boards and panels, truck load securing cargo protection, shutter insulation and similar items. A comparison is definitely worth a look:.
The CUT 2900S is a Styrofoam cutting machine for quantity and quality, and despite the fact that it is Made in Germany and offers a large application range it costs relatively little money. The machines are all fully tested by us, inspected and then packaged immediately. The setup and start of operation can either be handled by yourself or, for a small surcharge, we will send out one of our technicians, who will set it up within 1 hour. This is what is included in the delivery:
The perfect CNC Styrofoam cutting machine for manufacturers of sloped roofs - this and many more applications - the CUT 2900S is as versatile as they come. The in Germany developed and build machine is especially well suited for cuts up to five meters long. This incredible workhorse will position the cutting wire at four meters per minute, which is extremely fast. Here are more important features
The 2900 series comes with an all-around open machine table made of welded and painted steel. Even the weight of a 200 kilogram Styrofoam block will not bend the torsion resistant, rigid and sturdy frame.
The optional Touchpad of the CUT 2900S will make the operation of this machine even easier. The display monitor reacts to finger pressure, which means that the operator will be able to use the machine much more intuitive and make less typing mistakes.
The Touchscreen package is encased in a steel casing with flexibly adjustable setup, which basically means that the monitor will always be at the perfect height. And the PC will also have a secure space on this rack.
The cutting wires come with a thickness of 0.3 mm as well as two spring coils of a different spring stiffness. For parallel cuts we recommend the stiffer version. The coil springs are easily exchanged, because they are engaged with eyelet connections. This means that they are very simply disengaged and re-engaged, which in turn increases the work speed for angled and sloped cuts. On the CUT 2900S is the maximum usable wire length 1,450 mm. The spring coils on either end of the wire make sure that the cutting wire stays taut at all times: the cutting edges stay clean, accurate and straight for every single cut.
Basically, on the left and right eyelet screw sits the coiled spring, which each holds one end of the cutting wire. The benefit: The cutting wire can be disengaged and re-engaged very easily and fast. This simplifies any step and increases the work speed for monolithic cutGOOD TO KNOW How does monolithic cutting work? Hot wire cutting machines generate logos and letters by tracing their inner and outer contours with a tensioned wire. But how does the cutting wire take out the core of a hollow profile, like for example the letter O? For this, the wire would have to drive through the letter. However, this would mean an unsightly extra cut and it would damage the letter O. Obviously, this could be glued back together or somehow get covered up, but this also demands additional time. Nevertheless, a lot of Styrofoam cutting machines still work this way exclusively. Our selection of CUT machines, however, master the monolithic cutting unit-side and per software. Requirements: The spring-mounted wire must be easily removed and re-engaged. This way you will just drill a hole right through the letter O. Here, you will pass the wire through and hook it back into the machine. The rest is then controlled automatically via our Software multiCUT mono: You can remove the inner circle without entry and exit “wounds” to the actual letter. The result will be a perfectly smooth letter O. ">s. The coil keeps the cutting wire taut at all times during the process. The harder spring coil is best suited for parallel cuts and the softer springs is recommended for cuts with a longer cutting wire and cuts with 4 axes.
We offer the rotational table as an optional addition. It will add a computer controlled vertical axis to the existing cutting axis of the Styrofoam cutting machine. With this, cutting any symmetrical objects such as vases and eggs and even hemispheres are as easy as child's play.
The lathe is also an optional extra. It is manufactured in sturdy industrial quality and expands the CNC hot wire cutting machine with on more computer controlled horizontal turning axis. The lathe is the perfect addition for cutting twisted columns and other long 3D objects.
The panel and board cutting function of the CUT 2900S enables the operator to cut smaller panels out of larger boards. The so-called trimming is included in this function of this software that will cut two or more thinner panels out of one thicker one.
Styrofoam blocks are also suited for this kind of cutting, because you can literally cut them like slicing a loaf of bread, whenever you need a board or panel the size of the block. And on top of that you can always cut the blocks into smaller units of the desired sizes and slice them afterwards. In addition to that, our multiCut software will calculate such cuts in the material saving nesting mode, which optimizes the material to create less overall waste.
The low maintenance belt drive has been designed to withstand a lot of use and to last for a very long time. Exactly what you need, when cutting large amounts of Styrofoam and Styrodur on a daily basis
The 0.35 mm strong cutting wire comes with the CUT 2900S on a 50 meter spool. This way you can apply the wire as needed and whenever you need it.
To guarantee a clean and straight forward cut when processing Styrofoam, Styrodur or polyurethane foams, the cutting wire on the CUT 2900S always has the correct temperature. The "brains" behind this is the integrated sophisticated power supply unit. The microprocessor controls the power supply whenever the length of the cutting wire changes, which is especially the case during interlaced cutting. The minicomputer also regulates fluctuations in the current and corrects them automatically. This way we can guarantee each and every cut going through the material like a hot knife through butter.
The Software calculates fast and easily 4 axes programs for the cut of EPS and XPS boards, panels or blocks with one wire. Polystyrene blocks can even be cut in the nesting mode, whereby the software optimizes the material and therefore saves on material waste
2D contours are imported into multiCut in DXF format, which is then calculated into the final 2D and 3D cutting data - the so-called G-codes - within seconds. The code is then transferred either via the network or per USB stick into the machine, where the CNC software will take over and processes the numerical cutting data.
The cutting tracks, such as distances etc., can be calculated on a separate computer, which has one major benefit: The work preparation and production won't interfere with one another on the CNC Styrofoam cutting machine, as the preparation can already be done WHILST the previous work order is still being cut.
