CNC-controlled fast wire cutting machines for cutting all thermally cutable and non-cutable materials.
These machines allow the professional processing of all thermally cutable and non-cuttable materials, such as flexible foams (made of PE, PP and PUR), mineral wool (glass wool, rock wool, slag wool), but also Styrofoam (EPS) and Styrodur (XPS).
Fast wire cutting machines are perfect for all those materials that can and 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. We recommend these machines to all customers who need a reliable machine for their production.
Upholstery "Schumann" (Upper management)
The FW 4000H Fastwire series impresses professional users with its stable steel frame. It cuts 2D shapes, profiles, pipe sections, panels and much more. The FW 4000H can be found in the production of furniture makers and upholsterers as well as that of manufacturers of insulation materials and packaging.
The FW 4000H stands for quality made in Germany. Each machine is assembled, adjusted and extensively tested by us by hand. This is the only way we can be sure that all machines work reliably and deliver the required performance over the long term.
The machines of the FW 4000H Series are production machines. Their content of delivery is complete, including all basic safety equipment, arm housing, protective fence and an integrated arm suction. With the machines of this series, many different materials, such as PE, PP and PUR, mineral and rock wool, but also EPS and XPS panels and blocks up to a size of 4,000x1,250 mm and a height of 1,250 mm can be cut. This makes the FW 4000H our most powerful high-speed wire cutting machine for any commercial production.
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. The FW 4000H series integrates an arm enclosure with a powerful extraction system with two d100mm standard connections. You can use these connections to connect the machine to an existing central or stationary bag suction system.
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.
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 converter enables safe and low-wear operation. The cutting wire speed can be continuously controlled by the software via the frequency converter. The built-in microprocessor monitors the power supply and adjusts it if necessary in order to get even better and cleaner cuts. So every cut is done over and over again with a consistent quality.
The FW 4000H series is delivered with our self-developed 2-axis CNC industrial control.
The control can handle up to 8.0 amps per channel.
Order your machine with a Windows PC optimized for CNC cutting. The package includes: Windows PC, TFT monitor, keyboard and mouse. The required machine software is already installed and configured. The package is plug and play.
Unsere Maschinen sind komplett, alles ist enthalten, sogar die Maschinensoftware und der LAN Controller für alle aktuellen Windows Versionen. Die Oberfläche der Software wurde für das Schnelldrahtschneiden mit 2-Achsen optimiert und in der Praxis ausgiebig getestet. So können Sie sicher sein, alles funktioniert sofort. Einfacher geht es nicht.
The machines of the FW 4000H series can be expanded with the following accessories. This makes the machines plug and play and you can be sure that your machine will deliver the required performance again and again.
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. Depending on the place and country of installation different regulations may apply. The protective fence in combination with an access control system effectively prevents accidental contact with the rotating wire. We are happy to help you find the right protective fence and enclosure for your machine
Large and heavy blocks in particular can often no longer be lifted onto the machine by hand. In this case, loading with a forklift is the better and safer method. For machines with a table length of 3 meters and more, we recommend ordering the forklift option. It makes loading the machine a lot easier.
The adjustable side walls allow vertical processing of thin panels from 10mm. A large number of panels are placed between the side walls at the same time and are held upright by them. The side walls can be removed quickly. A change between large blocks and thin panels is possible at any time.
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. Further Information can be found under Software.
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 a few hours. The standard equipment contains the following components:
High-speed wire cutting machines are true "omnivores". They cut flexible foams (made of PE, PP and PUR), insulating wool (glass wool, rock wool, slag wool), as well as styrofoam (EPS) and Styrodur (XPS) with ease.
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
With this drawing software you can create letters quickly and easily and logos in vector format. Allows direct export for further processing.
Create drawings in vector format easily and quickly, is the strength of this CAD program. The subsequent DXF export can be processed further directly.

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.
In addition to the many advantages, the production series FW 4000H might be a little to much for your production. Have a look at the smaller FW 1000H or FW 2000H, it's worth it.
