STYROFOAM CUTTING MACHINE CUT 4000S:
The mammoth amongst our hot wire cutting machines


In our machine park, our high performance Styrofoam cutting machine CUT 4000S manages our mammoth tasks on a daily basis. If you are looking for a true high performance workhorse that will help you knock out some serious work - as well as your competition - then look no further. According to our clients, the CNC cutting machines of the CUT 4000S series average cuts with five wires simultaneously. However, depending on your work load, the optional and by 90° turnable Blockslicer can be equipped with up to 20 cutting wires. The machine is able to process up to four blocks in one operation.

The mammoth 4000 series is not only recommended for larger quantities of simple insulation boards. It will also cut ridge and valley panels for sloped roofs just as productively out of one big piece. The independent Y-axes are here a huge bonus. And any loaded standard blocks of the size 1,250 x 1,050 mm can easily be up to 3 meters long

When it comes to expansion, the CUT 4000S definitely has a huge footprint. On request, this mammoth can be "fed" with large Styrodur and Styrofoam blocks via a trolley. And in just a few simple steps, this Styrofoam cutting machine can be transformed into a Styrofoam mill in a few minutes. See the box "Extensions", which will show you all important options.

As powerful as a mammoth


CUT4000S - As powerful as a mammoth

With the CUT 4000S you will be able to solve many different tasks with just this one Styrofoam cutting machine. For example, the above mentioned Blockslicer is more assertive when it comes to cutting various different boards or panels. But that's not all - shutter insulation, window insulation, gutters, formwork, pontoons and crown moldings are all possible on this amazingly versatile mammoth of a machine. Even protruding contours are no match for this unit with a usable cutting wire length of up to 3,100 mm.

The CUT 4000S series generally works with three cutting axes: the X-axis and two independent Y-axes. The optional rotation table will expand the CUT 4000S by a fourth, computer controlled and vertical turning axis, whilst the lathe will add a horizontal rotating axis. With these extensions you will be able to cut also very complex symmetrical or asymmetrical objects fast and easily. And if you want to also add the shapeable profile wire into the mix, you will transform this mammoth into a turning Styrofoam cutting machine.

Plenty of software


Any CNC Styrofoam cutting machine is basically a computer with tools. First, the programs tickle the entire spectrum of possibilities out of the machine and the more powerful the software is - the more the hardware is able to do. Hence the reason why you should always keep an eye on the software, when you are comparing various different Styrofoam cutting machines. Is it easy to use? Will it be able to handle your work load? Does it have a lot of different functions as standard? What types of applications does it manage?

cnc-multitool made sure that the model series CUT 4000S hot wire cutting machines do come with a comprehensive software as standard. The interfaces will ensure the smooth transfer of all relevant data from quasi-standard programs such as CorelDraw and AutoCAD. Using our software is super easy and you will be amazed, how quickly it will translate your CAD files into the corresponding cutting data. Still not convinced? How about a visit in our competence center in Ilmenau, Germany for a live presentation of our Styrofoam cutting machines? It really is worth it and you will be able to get all your questions answered right there and then!

CUT 4000S - Features


The in Germany manufactured model series CUT 4000S has been specifically designed with large production quantities in mind. But what this machine is really capable of will become apparent when complex contours, ornate Stucco molding and surprisingly realistically looking 3D objects appear from within its amazingly powerful belly. Numerous different extension can make a lot of things possible and will provide a certain comfort that is hardly seen anywhere else in the Styrofoam and Styrodur cutting industry. Please have a look at these outstanding features:

Obviously, also the 4000 model series is built to our sturdy heavy duty industrial quality standards. Our machine tables are all made of welded and powder coated steel - no Aluminum in sight. On the working surface can therefore up to four material blocks be processed simultaneously.

The work area can be loaded via trolley (optional), which will reduce the overall downtime. Whilst the Styrofoam cutting machine is processing the current work load, you can already load the trolley with the next polystyrene block, before rolling the trolley to the machine, where it can be docked. You can then push the next block via the rails onto the machine table and fix it with the latching system. Depending on the machine type, several trolley may be used.

After the cutting process you can push the blocks back onto the trolley. You can then separate the several cut pieces from the block whilst being away from the machine, which in turn reduces the unproductive machine downtimes significantly to a minimum, or maybe even makes them all together obsolete.

The very handy remote control will give you a much better overview of the progress. You can operate the Styrofoam cutting machine with the handheld terminal from wherever you have the best view. It even enables you to manually control the CUT 4000S during easier projects like shortening blocks or cutting smaller panels.

With the digital display and the large control knob you will be able to position the cutting wire exactly where you need it to be - literally down to the millimeter! You can also change the cutting speed from very slow to very fast. And controlling the optional rotational table or the horizontal turning axis (lathe) is just as easy. The display of the terminal shows you exactly the current position of the axes. This way you will be able to manage even the most complicated tasks in no time.

The actual machine stand of the CUT 4000S series comes in a rollable console, which incorporates the PC, a monitor, the keyboard and a mouse. Thanks to its rolls, this unit is also very mobile

The monitor can also come as a touchscreen, which you can use with just your fingertips! This will prevent any mistakes whilst typing, which will also decrease wrong cuts and waste. The work will therefore go more smoothly.

The cutting wire of the CUT 4000S will always have the correct temperature and as a result, your Styrofoam or Styrodur will always be cut cleanly and accurately. The sensor for this temperature is controlled by a so-called microprocessor, which is a small chip-computer that monitors the electrical current - especially when the wire length changes during cutting. Also fluctuations are detected and immediately regulated and compensated by the processor. This will guarantee the highest quality for every single cut, as if the hot wire is cutting through butter.

The Blockslicer for the Styrofoam cutting machine CUT 4000S is turnable by 90°. The freely rotating cutting arms allow horizontal and vertical cuts for contours, boards and panels with 10 wires. However, the machine can be set up for cutting with up to 20 wires! The multiple wire cutting will enable the production of larger quantities quicker and easier.

You can choose a different cutting wire thickness depending on the required level of detail. The 4000 series works with cutting wires between 0.2 to 0.4 mm in diameter. As the wire springs are suspended from the rails and easily disengaged and re-engaged, exchanging these cutting wires can be done quickly and easily.

For the various different cutting wires (between 0.2 to 0.4 mm in diameter) the CUT 4000S also comes with various springs, each with a different stiffness. The stiffer spring will improve any parallel cuts. The pair of springs keeps even longer cutting wires taut at all times, so that the cuts stay clean, exact and straight. The wire suspension can easily be disengaged and re-engaged due to their eyelet connection, which will very much simplify especially often changing projects on the machine. The maximum usable wire length is 3,100 mm.

The optional rotational table adds a vertically rotating axis to the CNC Styrofoam cutting machine. This additional axis is computer controlled and allows the very easy cutting of symmetrical objects such as vases and eggs or asymmetrical objects like hemispheres.

The sturdy lathe is also an optional extra and will add a computer controlled horizontally turning axis to the CNC hot wire cutting machine. This lathe will effortlessly create contorted columns and other long 3D objects in no time at all.

A shapeable profile wire is the slightly more specialized cutting wire in the mix. The pre-shaped wire will peel contours and shapes out of polystyrene evenly and quickly, whilst the CNC cutting machine guides this wire over all of the three axes (X, Y, Z). Our CUT 4000S is also suitable for cutting a bending template out of Styrofoam (XPS), which will aid in shaping the cutting wire around it by hand. Artistic or organically realistic looking contours might even come out better, if you shape the wire without using such a template. Our tip: Combine the shapeable profile wire with the rotational table (see above). On this vertically rotating axis any silhouette will look like it was done on a turning table (lathe). This includes column capitals, column bases and column heads etc.

Some of our machines can be transformed into a Styrofoam mill and the CUT 4000S is one of them. With just a few steps, the modular machine components can be exchanged and turn this mammoth Styrofoam cutting machine into a Styrofoam milling machine. The mill head is movable in the direction of all three axes (X, Y, Z) and will literally turn this already hardworking CNC cutting machine into yet another true workhorse. This transformed unit will easily eat its way into all kinds of materials, such as EPS, XPS, EPP and other soft foams, but it will also manage to bring PVC, wood, GFK, CFK and other harder materials into shape.

The CUT 4000S comes with a feature specifically designed to cut multiple smaller panels out of larger boards - aptly named the panel cutting function. This so called "trimming" doesn't require a separate cutting program and is already included in the comprehensive machine software as standard.

This mammoth Styrofoam cutting machine manages to process blocks the size of 3,000 x 1,250 x 1,050 mm. Sometimes you might just need to cut one "slice" from one of these huge blocks or you may want to shorten them in their overall length. This is also no problem for the machine software, which even has a material saving nesting feature, which will optimize the material in such a way that it will cut smaller squares out of one larger block for further processing and thereby decreasing material waste. This nesting mode is part of our multiCut software.

Our CAM Software will provide you with all the necessary tools to get started and to process anything from rotational cutting, to lathe cutting, the creation of shaped profile cutting wires (Profiler), multi-profile and multiple wire cutting. multiCUT is a cloud based software and runs independent from any operating system on any Windows or Mac computer. As this is a web based service, each update and the continuously growing data catalogue will be available to you immediately. To be able to use the cloud based software you will need a modern internet browser such as Internet Explorer, Firefox or Chrome. The supported file formats are DWG, DXF, PLT or STL, which can be exported directly into the StyroCAM software fast and easily.

StyroCAM is also extremely cost effective, due to the division of several tasks: for example, you can already prepare an upcoming project, whilst the hot wire cutting machine still processes the current assignment. Simply load the newly designed 2D contours in DWG, DXF or PLT format into our StyroCAM Software and the machine will do the rest.

StyroCAM creates your complete 2D and 3D cutting data within mere seconds. The G-codes are transferred into the CNC Styrofoam cutting machine via our network or a USB stick. After that, the machine software will completely control the cutting data during the actual process.
