OFS-HE3 (horizontal knife)

Fastest and most efficient solution of the horizontal contour cutting machines with circulating knife for the cutting of cushions and mattresses

OFS-HE3 horizontal contour cutting machine

Possibility of an Integration of the OFS-HE 3 into an automatic cutting line

  • Bulk production of cushion parts made from PUR soft foam, visco or latex in no time
  • Highest possible dynamics due to the functional principle of separated table and cutting unit drives
  • High productivity and quality with the cutting of simple up to complex mattresses, for example made from PUR soft foam, PU HR foam or latex
  • Long knife lifetime and high precision when cutting parts for the automotive industy such as back rests, seats, gaskets, cable insulation or parts for acoustic insulation, even with high densities or Basotect
  • Centre support for a better support of the knife
  • Fully automated holding down system for fixing the block
  • Fully automatic version of the horizontal contour cutting machine with automatic turntable and transport conveyors for loading and unloading.
  • Vollautomatische Ausführung der horizontalen Konturenschneidemaschine mit automatischem Drehtisch und Transportbändern zum Be- und Entladen
  • Utilization of a micro-toothed knife avoids regrinding and guarantees a constant cutting quality
  • Optional inclusion of a separator
  • Block area programming available as an option

Foundation Plan

Loading and unloading conveyors

  • Enables an automatic loading and unloading and thus a continuous production flow
  • To be positioned upstream and downstream of the machine in various lengths
  • Recommended for the incorporation of the machine into an automatic cutting line
  • Prevention of idle times of the machine


  • Equipment of the machine with an automatic turntable with continuous belt for an automatic loading and unloading
  • All-automatic process converting of the blocks in second axial direction without having to move the workpiece by oneself
  • The minimiation of manual interference guarantees a constant and high quality of the finished product
  • The basic version of this cutting machine is equipped with a manual turntable without belt system

Centre support

  • Equipment of the machine with a movable centre support, either as automatic version or driven by motor
  • The centre support guarantees a better support of the knife, particularly when cutting small blocks
  • Allows higher cutting velocities


  • For higher accuracies of the cutting result: the seperator creates a gap between two blocks which is then used by the automatic centre support of the OFS-HE 3 as an additional support of the knife
  • For a lateral alignment and for seperationg two blocks upstream of the OFS-HE 3

Holding down device

  • Sheet holding down device for a constant fixing of the block
  • Consisting of 5 sheet segments
  • Moves synchronously to the axis
  • There are 5 positions of the sheet holding down device which can be automatically approached by the holding down device
  • Also allows small cuts in connection with the turntable as it rests upon the material over a large area
