Precise contours with your foam cutting machine

With a cutting wire from Bäumer, you can achieve the best results - even with harder materials. We offer wires with different windings for horizontal and vertical foam cutting machines, perfectly matched to the material you are processing.

Fine cutting wires minimize dust content and are ideal for soft foams, as well as lightweight rigid or composite foams. For technical foams, rigid, and composite foams, we recommend using a coarser wire. In this case, the basic winding comprises multiple individual wires, while the cross and main winding are highly structured.

Cutting wires in action: Materials and applications

Did you know that basically all materials that can be processed with a band saw can also be cut with a wire? This offers the advantage of being able to cut contours as well.

Typical examples of the use of cutting wires are pipe insulation or pipe shells for the construction industry as well as packagings made of styrofoam, polystyrene or PVC. On vertical cutting machines, wires are often used for trimming sheets made of non-elastic materials. You can also process flexible foams with a cutting wire from Bäumer! However, the completely dust-free use of our contour blades is usually preferred for this.

Our cutting wires are ideal for:
flexible polyurethane foam, technical foams, rigid and composite foams, recycled materials, synthetic rubber and plastics
