A CNC foam cutter is a device that is directed by software and can cut foam into any shape. It can be used to create a wide range of shapes including 3D designs. A CNC foam cutter is used to cut polystyrene and other materials. Computer numerical controlled (CNC) foam cutters allow you to have a great deal of control when it comes to designing and shaping the foam.

How It Works

A CNC controlled cutter provides the guided cutting that is needed to get excellent results. The information is fed into the software and the cutting wire responds to the directions.

Design Options

This type of cutter can cut a wide range of designs into blocks of foam including:

  • Letters, text, signage
  • Numbers, 3D logotypes
  • Architectural elements
  • Film decorations
  • External insulation
  • Fair, community event decorations
  • Props
  • And more

Designs can be cut into a wide range of polystyrene substrates including, expanded and extruded foams. It can also be used with polypropylene foams, polyethylene foams and more. It is a great piece of equipment to have. The only limitation to the design possibilities is your own imagination. This can be the ideal solution for your activity.

The Benefits

There are some clear benefits to choosing this type of cutter for your operation. The foam cut by a CNC cutter will not expand because there is no introduction of thermal properties used. They will not crack from the cold, because thermal properties are not used to cut the foam. Autometrix is the place to shop for your CNC cutter.
