CNC CONTOUR CUTTER
In the early 1990s, Wintech patented the Oscillating Blade process for cutting flexible foam. These machines feature a thin sharp blade pulled backward and forward at high speeds. Unlike a Band Knife, with this arrangement, the Oscillating Blade has unlimited twist ability. This means this feature packed and versatile machine can cut extremely intricate shapes, convolute and even spiral peel a roll.
Wintech’s Oscillating Blade foam cutting machines are now renowned for their high level of quality. They are so successful in the furniture, sleep products, and packaging industries that other manufacturers have attempted to replicate them. Like all Wintech CNC machines, the Oscillator features our in-house developed Profiler software which ensures accurate and reliable results no matter the design or product being produced. The Profiler software accepts a common dxf file format.
High Speed Oscillation
The powerful motors stroke the blade at an incredibly high speed resulting in a superior surface finish. This high-speed oscillation allows the blade to cleanly slice the foam without significant vibration.
Unlimited Blade Twist
Wintech’s Oscillating Blade foam cutting machines make use of a once patented mechanism that allows unlimited rotations. This allows the blade to precisely follow the most complex designs, without having to stop production to untwist the blades. This Oscillating Blade device allows a rectangular bun to be Spiral Peeled. This is a unique feature that expands the versatility of the machine and provides the owner with productivity improvements and cost reductions.
Because the foam is sliced, not abrasively cut, so there is no dust generated. A clean dust-free surface on the finished product is essential for mattresses, pillows, and medical applications. This also provides a cleaner and safer workplace.
Disposable blades ensure the sharpest cut in every job, keeping productivity and quality high. A single person can remove and install a new blade in under 5 minutes.
Used in a Variety of Industries
Our Oscillating Blade contour cutting machines have been used in a variety of industries including the upholstery and furniture, medical, packaging, automotive, construction engineering, and insulation technology (acoustic and thermal).
Wintechs Oscillating Blade CNC profiler machines are a safe addition to your factory lineup thanks to their variety of safety features. This includes sensors for oil level, air pressure, blade tension and proximity all monitored in real time by Wintech’s Profiler CNC software. Warning lights and an (E-stop) safety relay drops current from high voltage components instantly and stops the machine within 3 seconds. Then there are the Wintech designed “Wing Doors” guarding the cutting zone now being copied by others.
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 turnovers 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. This could allow unattended operation of the machine for long periods. The machine has the option to shut off automatically at the end of the job/queue.
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 customizable 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 digitizer device to trace paper drawings or cardboard templates.
