When it comes to machines for cutting Styrofoam and Styrodur, the reserves are what count. This is the only way to stay open to all possibilities.

The machines of the CUT 3500SV are specialists in their field. They combine the advantages of the more compact CUT3000S series with the advantages of long travels and long wire lengths.

With the manual or optionally CNC-controlled portal adjustment, wire lengths from 850 to 5050mm can be used. It is now possible to cut everything on one machine, whether XPS panels with a short wire or 5m long blocks - no problem with the CUT3500SV.

In addition, the styrofoam cutting machine moves independently in each of the four cutting axes. Optionally, a rotation table or a horizontal axis of rotation (lathe) as a fifth axis extends the system.

This machine series contains the know-how of ten years of development in the processing of polystyrene. Your benefit: unparalleled performance.

This is the ideal machine series for all industries that have to react quickly and flexibly to any type of challenge with a variable wire.

Commercial production

With its stable steel frame, fast drives and uncomplicated operation, the CUT 3500SV series impresses commercial and industrial users. It cuts 3D shapes, profiles, pipe sections, plates and much more. The CUT 3500SV speeds up the production of scenery builders and theaters as well as the manufacturers of stucco moldings and profiles.

CUT 3500SV - Characteristics

The CUT 3500SV machines are quality "Made in Germany". Each machine is hand-assembled, adjusted and extensively tested befor delivery to ensure that all machines will run smoothly for a long time.

Basic machine

CUT 2500S Series - cutting styrodur

The CUT 3500SV was developed to flexible process EPS, XPS and EPP insulation panels with a size of up to 1,600x1,050 mm and a maximum length of 3m.

The extremely stable open machine table made of welded and painted Steel profiles allow the machine to be loaded quickly and easily from all sides. This means that larger styrofoam blocks or a large number XPS panels can also be processed at the same time. Even loading and unloading the machine with a forklift is possible.

4-independent axes

CUT3500SV Serie - eps foam cutting

The CNC styrofoam cutting machines of the CUT 3500SV series all have 4 axes. They can be controlled in parallel or independently of one another.

Cut 3D objects with two differently sized contours such as cones, conical columns, profiles or airfoils from EPS and XPS sheets and small blocks. The cutting wire tension for parallel cuts is controlled by a hard spring and for 4-axis cuts with a wire length change of up to 150mm by a soft spring. And if 150mm is not enough, take a look at the automatic wire tensioner for extremely twisted cuts further down the page.

Quick Wire system

CUT3500SV Serie - quick wire system

Two spiral springs on both sides of the wire control the tension of the cutting wire. You will receive two harder and a softer spring. Use the two harder springs for parallel cuts. For tappered cuts with a wire length change of up to 150 mm the softer type is recommended.

Thanks to the quick wire system, the wire can be removed and reinserted without tools. Above all, this makes it easier and faster also monolithic cutting .

Automatic wire tensioner

CUT3500SV Serie - automatic wire tensioner

The automatic wire tensioner ensures extrem 3D tappered cuts. If the length of the wire changes during cutting, the wire tensioner starts to worek. This is the case with e.g. cones or conical columns. The has a sensor unit, a motor unit and an electronic controller. As it cuts, the sensor unit constantly measures the length of the wire. As soon this changes, the electronic controller corrects the tension: the motor unit winds up or down the wire. The fully automatic wire tensioner works independently from the cutting machine and the software.

The intelligent power supply with the built-in microprocessor controls the power supply if the length of the wire changes. The minicomputer also reacts to fluctuations in the mains voltage automatically. This way, we can guarantee that every cut will be clean and accurate.

Automatic portal adjustment

CUT3500SV Series - aautomatic portal adjustment

Instead of adjusting the machine table manually, you can do it also automated precisely on the mm due to the automatic portal adjustment. The distance can be set directly via the software. This will speed up your production when doing precise 3D cuts.

Power supply

Netzteil - Automatischer Stromregler

The cutting wire of the CUT 2500S series will always have the correct temperature to guarantee clean cuts when processing Styrofoam, Styrodur or epp foams. The reason behind this is the sophisticated current control, which contains a microprocessor that controls the power supply particularly during 3D tappered cuts, as the wire lengths will vary during this process.

This way, we can guarantee that every cut will be clean and accurate.

CNC control with up to 5 channels

4-channel CNC control incl. Power supply

The CUT3500SV series is delivered with our self-developed 4-axis CNC control.

The control can be loaded with up to 5.0 amps per channel. In addition, the control can be expanded by a 5-channel, what the control of an additional axis, e.g. a rotary table permitted.

Machine software including LAN controller

LAN Controller

Our machines are complete, everything is included, even the machine software and the even more secure and reliable LAN controller for all current Windows versions. The screen of the software was designed and optimized for wire cutting with 4 and 5 axes and extensively tested in practice. You can be sure that everything will work immediately.

All you need is a Windows computer or laptop with one Free LAN connection and about 10 minutes to install everything. It couldn't be easier.

Optional Accessories

The machines of the CUT 2500S series can be upgraded by the following accessories. This makes the machines plug and play and you can be sure that your machine will work reliable with the required performance.

Working desk

CUT3500SV Serie - Arbeitskonsole für PC, Monotot und Maus

With the optional extension arm, you can integrate a monitor, keyboard and mouse into the styrofoam cutting machine. You gain space that would otherwise be occupied by the control desk or work table. Even the power socket is integrated. All you have to do is assemble the console, plug in your machine and get started - It's that easy.

Turntable package

CUT3500SV - Turntable cutting

The optional rotation table complements the four cutting axes of the styrofoam cutting machine around a vertical axis of rotation. The computer also controls this fifth axis. In this way, symmetrical bodies such as vases and are created as if by magic Eggs or asymmetrical objects such as hemispheres.

Forklift loading

CUT3500SV Serie - Gabelstaplerbestückung

The machines of the CUT3500SV series can process large styrofoam blocks up to a size of 1,600x1,050x5,000mm. With a volume weight of e.g. 30kg / cbm, such a block quickly weighs 250kg and more. So what could be more obvious than lifting the block onto the machine with a forklift. The forklift option with the correct cut-outs in the table helps here a lot.

Computer package

CNC optimized Windows computer

Order your machine right away with a Windows PC optimized for CNC cutting. The package includes: Windows PC, TFT screen, Keyboard and mouse. The latest Windows operating system is installed and cnc optimized. The package is plug and play.

Touchscreen package

Touchscreen package

Expand the machine with the touchscreen package. The additional package makes operation simple. The package includes: Windows PC, touch screen TFT screen, touch screen optimized surface with additional functionality.

The software makes the difference

At first glance, most hot wire cutting machines all seem very similar. The difference becomes apparent in the normal day to day production in terms of saving time and money. Particularly important is the easy-to-use, powerful software. Herein lies one of the outstanding strengths of cnc-multitool. You will hardly find anything comparable in the market.

Even the best hardware is pretty much useless, if the software is the limiting factor. In order to fully exploit the potential of the CUT 3500SV, we recommend to you the following software:

Models in Comparison

In addition to many advantages, the design of the CUT3500SV machine has also their limits. A longer wire or extreme tappered cuts are unfortunately not within the realm of the 3500SV series. For such cases we have developed the CUT 3500SV-series. It's well worth taking a look at this bigger sister of the 3000 series.
