Horizontal cutting machine

Very fast processing (80 m/min) of soft materials into sheets, reversing belt system

Cutting soft foam at high speed

Horizontal cutting machine equipped with an endless band knife. The BSL-214 guarantees a constant cut quality for soft foams with high speed cutting at up to 80 m/min.

Saving additional costs

due to maintenance-free ball bearing screws and less friction while swiveling the cutting head.

Accurate cutting results

Cutting lighter materials within very narrow tolerances due to the stable, welded construction of the machine.

Highly precise and fast

Height adjustment of the cutting head using ball bearing screws for a height adjustment up to 100 mm/s.

Less movement of the material

An efficient external vacuum in the cutting area holds down the material while cutting.

No slipping of the knife

Special crowned rubber knife wheels keep the knife centered.

Perfect cutting of various materials

due to a cutting angle adjustment range between 1° and 6° 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.

High production output

Maximum cutting speed of 80 m/min

Foundation plan



  • Grinding unit

    Efficient grinding with a very stable and powerful motor-driven grinding unit with cup wheel grinding disks.

  • Cutting angle adjustment

    Through motor-driven swivelling of the cutting unit from -1 to +6°, optimal cutting angles are created and sheets of precise thicknesses can be cut.

  • Vacuum unit

    The vacuum unit ensures an optimal fixation of the material to be cut during the cutting process.

  • Grinding dust extraction

    It is used for extracting the grinding dust during the grinding process.

  • SOPHIEaccess

    Networking of the machinery and the operative functions.

  • Loading and unloading conveyors

    The loading and unloading conveyors enable automatic loading and unloading for a continuous flow of production. They enable the use in a cutting line. To be positioned upstream and downstream of the machine.

  • Reinforced table drive

    The reinforced table drive is necessary for total block weights over 400 kg or for a table length of 3300 mm or longer.

  • Height-adjustable take-off conveyor

    The height-adjustable take-off conveyor separates the cut sheet stacks from the residual block and feeds them to the downstream conveyor belt system. This function can be used to take away both single sheets as well as several stacked sheets for further processing. It is often used in combination with our vertical contour cutting machine OFS-VS since it facilitates production in a production line. For cutting sheet stacks with a sheet thickness exceeding 80 mm, the take-off conveyor can be pneumatically raised at the end in order to prevent any offset of the split sheets.

  • Cooling unit

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

  • Silicone spraying device

    The silicone spraying device wets the knife binding at intervals, minimizing the frictional forces between the binding and the material to be cut. This reduces sheet offset.
