CNC Fastwire Cutting machine
FW 4000H - Serie


Fast wire cutting machines are perfect for all those materials that cannot be cut thermally. These include flexible foams (PE, PP and PUR), as well as mineral wool (glass wool, Fiberglas, rock wool and slag wool) and Styrofoam (EPS) and Styrodur (XPS).

The FW 4000H machines works abrasive: Basically, it grates away the material with its endless wire. The cutting wire is only one to two millimeters thick and rotates with a working speed of around 300 km/h. Hence the reason, why the FW 4000H series manages extremely fine cuts and contours with high cutting speeds.

Made for Production


Thanks to the extremely sturdy steel frame the FW 4000H Fastwire series targets the commercial production. The machine will process the 2D shapes, profiles, contours, pipe-isolation, panels and a lot more completely unattended. The incomparably fast FW 4000H will kick the production of furniture builders and upholsterers as well as manufacturers of Insulation and packaging up a notch.

Delivery contents


The FW 4000H is a very powerful and high performance fast wire cutting machine for the commercial production. This machine will be fully tested, inspected first and then packaged for delivery. The montage and start up can either be done by the customer themselves or, for a small surcharge, they will have the option to call out one of our technicians, who will be able to set them up and get them running within 3 hours. The standard equipment contains the following components:

Safty first


The Fastwire series owes its extremely fast cutting performance to the incomparably quickly moving and finely barbed cutting wire. According to the federal occupational safety regulations, these kinds of machines do require a certain set of safety measures to protect the workers and operators. This is why cnc-multitool also supplies a protective safety housing for the FW 4000H as standard equipment straight from our factory. This safety fence will prevent the accidental contact with the rotating cutting wire while it's running.

Fast wire cutting is a mechanical process that will inevitably generate a lot of noise and dust. Therefore, it is absolutely imperative that any operator or worker near and around a running fast wire cutting machine has to comply with the current hearing and respiratory protection rules and regulations. We also recommend to continuously remove the sawing dust with an industrial extractor fan. However, as the FW 4000H does work mostly unattended, the hearing protection is only necessary, when workers and employees are near the machine when it's running.

Materials


Fast wire cutting machines are true "carnivores". They cut flexible foams (PE, PP and PUR) as well as mineral wool (glass wool, Fiberglas, rock wool, slag wool), buta also just as easily Styrofoam (EPS) and Styrodur (XPS).

FW 4000H - Features


Here is an overview of its most important features:

The FW 4000H series comes with a machine table made of welded and powder coated steel. The work top can be loaded comfortably from three sides manually or with a forklift. It will provide enough support for heavier materials and prevent them from slipping whilst being cut. We do recommend to clamp lighter materials or to fixate them with double-sided adhesive tape.

A high-quality 4.2kW IEC rotary asynchronous motor "made in Germy" is used to drive the wire. Low weight thanks to aluminium housings, constant speed and sufficient power reserves even at high speeds distinguish these special motors.

The matching frequency inverter with 7.5kW allows safe and low-wear operation

Choose the right wire for the material. We deliver ready to use endless wire with a diameter between 1 to 2 mm. As a rule of thumb: the thinner the wire, the finer the cut. The maximum usable wire length is around 1,250 mm.

Blocks made of styrofoam or foam are well suited for cutting. Depending on the material, these standard blocks are 2.0 m long, 1.25 m wide and 1.0 m high. Thanks to the optimised travel paths, the FW 4000H series can also be used to cut entire blocks in one go.

You can cut off panels of various thickness manually or automatically. If the software controls the process, the machine even runs unattended.

The fully automatic plate cutting function of the FW 4000H allows the cutting of plates from entire blocks

The FW 4000H series provides maintenance-free chain drive and rack-and-pinion drive for a long service life. As a result, large amounts of mineral wool, foam or PE, PP and PUR foams can be cut repeatedly accurately.

With our styroCAM software, you can generate the machine program quickly and easily from a drawing. No prior knowledge is required. styroCAM is "Software in the Cloud" and runs operating system independently on any Windows or MAC system. Each update is immediately available to you. Simply use the web-based program via a browser such as Internet Explorer, Firefox or Chrome. The software works with DWG, DXF, PLT files.

StyroCAM creates your finished 2D cutting data in a matter of seconds. These programs then reach the CNC machine via network or USB stick.

Software


Every CNC machine requires sophisticated CAM software for fast and uncomplicated editing of cutting programs.

To do this, create drawings in CorelDraw® or AutoCAD or any other vector program and export them as DXF, DWG or PLT drawings. These drawings are then loaded into our styroCAM software and converted into a machine program with just a few clicks, which can be subsequently cut.
Here's a selection of software that will help you get the start-finish victory with the FW 4000H::
