BEST CUTS
Polystyrene Foam

Hotwire
CNC CONTOUR CUTTER

Unlike other types of foam, expanded polystyrene (EPS) can be cut using a thin wire heated by a low voltage electrical current. This heat vaporises the material without any physical resistance, creating quick and clean cuts. Wintech’s Hotwire machines are the most efficient way to cut EPS.

ADVANTAGES

Multiple Cuts at Once

Wintech Hotwire machines can be built to hold 10 to 50 wires. The feed rate is no different between 1 and 50 wires since the cuts are done with heat, not physical contact. This allows multiple cuts in one pass without any compromise in speed.

Dust-Free Cutting

Because EPS is vaporised, not abrasively cut, there is no dust created. This helps keep a clean, safe workplace and also provides a clean dust-free surface to the finished product.

Simple Operation & Maintenance

The cutting process is incredibly simple because the operator does not have to worry about an orientation to the cutting wire. Additionally, the machine requires minimal maintenance. Since the wire cuts using heat, not physical contact, there is virtually no wear and tear.

Clean Cuts

Using a Wintech Hotwire, EPS foam is cleanly and consistently cut without any defects. The superior surface finish is unmatched by other cutting processes available, such as water jet, laser and plasma.

KEY FEATURES

Fully Automated Cutting

Every Wintech machine is a fully automated CNC cutter. This means that they are computer-driven to ensure the accuracy and repeatability of every contour cut. It also means Wintech machines do not have the operational dangers, manual errors or slow turn overs of manual cutters. The operator simply opens the cutting drawings on the computer and tells the machine to start cutting.

One person can easily load and operate the machine. Wintech machines can also run a subsequent number of jobs automatically. Many owners leave their machine running after working hours because it will shut itself off when the queue is complete.

Flexible Floorplans and Operation

Wintech machines are operated via the control cabinet. This is a small freestanding unit that houses the computer to design and store all the drawings. It also provides an intuitive interface to control every aspect of the machine. The operator runs the machine through its software, using the touch screen, keyboard or mouse. This allows the operator to keep a safe distance from the machine and be positioned in a convenient location in the factory.

The control cabinet also comes with a sealed, fully functional 18-key handset to allow for remote control. There are no cables to the remote. This gives the operator even more physical freedom. Quick positioning or manual cutting are possible with this remote handset.

Powerful User-Friendly Software

Wintech machines use the Windows operating system. Our proprietary Profiler software is designed in-house to get the most out of your machine. A rich graphical environment makes the machine simple to use but packed with powerful features.

Our machines are pre-loaded with a wide selection of standard cuts (geometric shapes, letters, numerals, etc), with customisable presets. We have powerful importing capabilities from other digital drawing software and a sophisticated native drawing interface. For first-time CNC users, we have an optional digitiser device to trace paper drawings or cardboard templates.
