CUT 2500S - Characteristics


The CUT 2500S 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 2500S was developed to flexible process EPS, XPS and EPP insulation panels with a size of up to 1,250x1,050 mm and a maximum length of 2m.

Variable machine table

CUT 2500S Series - cutting styrodur

Thanks to the open, variable machine table made of welded and painted steel, the machines of the CUT 2500S series can be set up to meet your needs.

You want to process XPS ? No problem. Push the machine table together and cut with a short wire letters, logos or technical parts quickly, reliable and above all precise. Now you need to cut a 4m long profile from EPS? No problem. Slide the machine table apart and cut with the 4m long wire. Hardly any other machine is as flexible as the CUT2500S series machine

4-independent axes

CUT2500s Serie - eps foam cutting

The CNC styrofoam cutting machine CUT 250S has 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

well designed cutting wire installation

A spiral spring controls the tension of the cutting wire. You will receive a harder and a softer spring. Use the harder spring 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 installation system, the wire can be removed and reinserted without tools. This makes monolithic cutting easier and faster.

CNC control with up to 5 channels

4-channel CNC control incl. Power supply

The CUT2500S series is delivered with our self-developed 4-axis CNC control.

The control can be loaded with up to 3.0 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.

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.

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.

Turntable package

CUT2500S - 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.

Automatic wire tensioner

CUT2500s 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.

Milling conversion

CUT2500s Serie - foam milling

The CNC styrofoam cutting machines of the CUT 2500S series can be convert to a styrofoam mill in just a few simple steps. Compare the converted CUT 2500S with other CNC milling machines within this price segment. This machine will processes EPS, XPS, EPP and other soft materials, as well as PVC, wood, GFK, CFK and other harder materials.

Machine software including USB controller

USB Controller

The package includes the machine software and the USB controller for all current Windows versions . The screen of the software has been optimized for wire cutting with 4 and 5 axes and extensively tested in practice. You can be sure everything works immediately.

All you need is a Windows computer or laptop with a free USB port and about 10 minutes for installation. It couldn't be easier.

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.

CAM Software

styrofoam cutting software styroCAM by cnc-multitool

To create your 2D and 3D cutting data we recommend our self-developed styroCAM software. It is a cloud-based Styrofoam cutting software for calculating offer prices and creating cutting files for standard 2D and 3D cuts. You can find more information under Software .

Working Console

CUT 2500S - Working console

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.

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 2500S, we recommend to you the following software:

Models in Comparison


In addition to many advantages, the compact design of the CUT2500S machine has also their limits. The large Styrodur panels (3,100 x 1,050 x 120 mm) are unfortunately not within the realm of the 2500 series. For such large monoliths we have developed the CUT 3000S-series. It's well worth taking a look at this bigger sister of the 2500 series.
