Why band saws for foam?

You probably already know: With hard and heavy foams, a single cut is often not enough. Material needs to be removed, so a cutting separation has to be carried out. No problem for our foam saws! Even very light materials such as vinyl foam or mineral wool can be cut with double-sided band saws - in half the usual time.

Whether horizontal or vertical cutting machine: With a Bäumer band saw you can cut through almost any material!

Basically, the coarser the teeth on your foam saw, the more aggressive the cut. The more teeth per inch, the finer the cut. We offer a wide range of band saws for your foam processing, which differ in the following aspects:

Thickness and width of the foam saw blade, number of teeth per inch and set of the teeth

No perfect saw cut without good guidance: All Bäumer band saws are guided at the back and on both sides - the set of the saw remains untouched for maximum stability. In addition, our knife guides are also made of highly wear-resistant material that can easily cope with the high rotation speeds of the foam saw. Are you cutting low melting point materials? You may need to reduce the speed accordingly. When choosing your foam cutting machine, make sure that the rotation speed is adjustable!

You can also use foam band saws on vertical cutting machines: We are happy to equip our IS-M and IS-L vertical cutting machines with this option for you.
