Form profile cutting machine featuring a reversing table and stationary cutting unit for producing nearly all three-dimensional form parts made of elastic foam materials by means of a given form

FSM-1 compression cutting machine

Able to produce positive parts (e. g. cushion parts) as well as negative parts (e. g. packaging industry by means of compression cutting.

  • Small and large bath sizes can be economically produced within short time
  • The solid machine design allows a compression ratio of 1:20 and offers thus a high potential for the individual design of shaped pieces
  • A sturdy knife bar with automatic knife readjustment ensures a steady knife position and thus constant production qualities
  • Latetest PLC control together with an operator panel enables a storing of production data and ensures a perfect reproducibility of the shapes
  • State-of-the-art servo drive technology allows feeding accuracies of 2/100 mm
