Horizontal cutting machines provide an easy way of converting PU foam blocks into sheets ranging from 2.5mm to 200mm. The machine is PLC controlled and has automatic operation with any point start system, which allows for the operation to be started by the press of just one button from any position.
The cutting is done by an endless band knife running over four dynamically balanced wheels for smooth cutting surface. The table moves to and fro in a linear motion for cutting the foam. After the cut the cutting section lifts up a little to allow obstruction free reverse movement of the table.
