Horizontal cutting machine

Cutting flexible soft foams into sheets, moving cutting unit, integrated de-stacking system, fully automatic

Cutting rigid materials with ideal results

Horizontal splitting machine for a wide range of rigid materials. The horizontal splitting machine BSA splits sheets and block material with high weight and a hardness up to 65 Shore A.

Comfortable operation without an operator

The moving cutting unit cuts the material sheet by sheet (on the table), which then are stacked very accurately and automatically (on pallets).

Accurate cutting results with almost no deviation

Splitting materials within very narrow tolerances due to the stable, welded construction of the machine and the thin knife shape.

High productivity

with a maximal cutting speed of 100 m/min.

Less movement of the material

Stable material fixation with a strong vacuum (300 mm water column).

Proper block fixation

Stable material fixation with a strong vacuum (300 mm water column), with optional frequency-controlled vacuum for getting a perfect last sheet with no marks remaining on the table surface.

Sharp knife – constant grinding quality

No longer operator-dependent due to automatic grinding unit with cup wheel grinding disk for knife grinding (optional)

Stacking sheets without any misalignment

Automatical removing and de-stacking of the material.

Perfect cutting of various materials

due to cutting angle adjustment up to 7° for more flexibility regarding the production range.

High machine availability

due to high quality parts with a long service life and easy access to spare parts, e.g. control panels from Siemens

Highly automated production line

is best used in a cutting line followed by a vertical contour cutting machine.

Technical data

Horizontal splitting machine for a wide range of rigid materials up to a hardness of 65 Shore A. Unique splitting system: The cutting unit moves horizontally and works with 2 height-adjustable working tables. On the first table the material is fed, on the second table the split sheets are de-stacked.

Foundation plan



  • Grinding unit

    Efficient grinding in a very stable, powerful grinding unit using grinding disks with a diameter of 125 mm

  • Grinding dust extraction

    used for extracting the grinding dust during the grinding process.

  • Retainer adjustment

  • Motor-driven pressure roller adjustment

    Synchronization of the pressure roller with the table for less deflection, for cutting thin sheets and special materials.

  • Motor-driven cutting angle adjustment

    Efficient operation due to possible angle adjustment range between 0° and 7°. The angle of the knife is varied depending on different materials and cutting thicknesses in order to get the best cutting result

  • Stacking system

  • Knife bar

    Due to the utilization of a slim knife bar it is possible to cut a very wide range of different materials within minimal cutting tolerances.

  • Unloading conveyor downstream of the cutting unit

  • SOPHIEaccess

    Networking of the machinery and the operative functions.

    More information


  • Cooling unit

    In order to guarantee a safe operation of the machine, the entire interior of the switch cabinet is cooled.

  • Table I with controlled vacuum units

    The vacuum unit ensures an optimal fixation of the material to be cut during the cutting process. Appropriate vacuum power for the remaining material height.

  • Table II with chain conveyor for pallets

    Stacking table with chain conveyors for stacking material on pallets.
