WeCutFoam Now Offering Soft & Flexible Foam Cutting Services Using Oscillating Knife Cutter

eTradeWire News/10682397
WeCutFoam has recently purchased a CNC oscillating Tangential knife cutter to provide a solution for fabricating prototypes and foam products that cannot be cut on other foam cutting equipment.

SUNNYVALE, Calif. - eTradeWire -- WeCutFoam, providing foam cutting, machining and prototyping services nationally, is expending its services to include flexible and soft foam cutting, using an oscillating tangential rotating knife cutter that produces clean neat edges with accurate cuts.

WeCutFoam is a subsidiary company of Foamlinx LLC, a designer and manufacturer of CNC foam cutting machines since 2001. The company fabricates logos, letters, signs, packaging inserts, exhibits, and prototypes. Recently, due to a rising demand from customers to produce parts from foam such as soft Polyurethane, Polyethylene, EVA and other flexible materials, the company purchased the Oscillating knife cutter.

The machine uses knife blades in an up and sown speedy vibration motions to achieve smooth, clean and accurate cuts. This enables the company to offer fabrication services of cutting materials that cannot be nicely cut on other foam cutting machinery. Also, with certain materials, using a routing spindle or a hot wire is not a viable option, as thin or flexible material is not robust enough to be machined successfully. Trying to cut soft urethane foam on a hot wire cutter would give out toxic fumes, cutting flexible foam on a laser cutter might burn the edges, and trying to machine EVA material on a router would cause distortion and poor accuracy due to the difficulty in holding down the material.

The Oscillating knife cutter is also able to cut materials such as cardboard, corrugated plastic, foam core, PVC, rubber and sponge foam, PVC, leather and carbon fiber. This enables WeCutFoam to expend its services to more customers and broader industries including the creation of car seats, steering wheel grips, cushions, upholstery, interiors and acoustic panels for the automotive industry, prototypes for research & development as well as for Aerospace, inserts for the packaging industry, products for sign shops and for the fashion industry, all while being able to offer more products and materials variety.

A selection of easily interchangeable cartridges allows a wide range of material to be processed and the full directional control of the blade allows for straight edges, sharp corners and all radii to be cut cleanly and accurately. The oscillating cutting process allows for minimizing time and cost on tooling, manufacturing and managing during the fabrication process. As a result, the turnaround time capabilities improve by being 70% faster than manual cutting.
