Automatic Turntable

The automated CROMA® turntable allows you to produce 3D objects easily and automatically.

This option is fixed permanently on the machine and does not interfere with the 2D cut or other modes and does not modify the total cutting capacity.

It is possible to adapt several synchronous turntable for greater productivity.

Reducing the wire length

By this process we reduced the size of the wire, allowing to realize  angles superiors as 45 °.
This will allow you to realize technical parts of greater precision.

Remote Control


It will help you to prepare your cutting and start your work without having to return to your computer screen saving you considerable time
  • A simple press of a button generates a movement command, positioning or a memory recall
  • You can go from full speed to low speed
  • You can drive the turntable in both directions
  • You can start/pause/stop cutting
  • You can recall memory points- And much more functions

Multi wire harps fixed or rotative

Up to 40 horizontal and vertical wires to cut the block. The space between each wire can be adjusted to any position each 10 mm.

This option allows:

  • Increase productivity.
  • Reduce production costs

 

Available on :

  • Customized Machines and Industrial Serie for Rotative harp
  • UHD+ and Professional Serie for Fixed Harp

Conveyors

  • Type: special design belts or motorized rollers
  • Width depends of the foam block weight to be moved
  • Speed is controlled and adjusted manually trough an electronic box with a potentiometer
  • Extra conveyors can be added on both sides of the machine for a full line of cutting production
  • Control of the position of the block with laser beams and Programmable Logic Controllers
  • To trim the foam a minimum of one conveyor should be inside the machine

 

Available on : Industrial Series and Customized Machines

 

Material Holding Systems

  • Standard :

A horizontal moving bar positioned on either side of the machine will maintain small thickness sheets. You will also be able to cut the sheets with non-perpendicular angles.

Available on : 2 Axis, UHD +, Professional, Industrial Series and Custom Machines
  • Advanced:

Allows the holding of a large number of thin sheets. This system adapts the cutting capabilities of the machine.

Available on : UHD +, Professional, Industrial Series and Custom Machines

Automatic Positioning of Cutting Wires

Cutting wire are mounted on a frame placed on the machine. With additional program the positioning of the cutting wire is automatically determinate in the cutting software CROMA.
You choose the space you want to have between each wire.
This option will quickly performed a  wire positioning.

 

Available on : Industrial Series or Customized Machines

Detection of wires breakage, further development

 
If the Wire breaks during a cutting software detects it and automatically "pauses" the machine, so you can either change the wire or back at the starting point of the cut.

Protection and Safety

Our cutting machine with hot wire present no particular danger. Of the approximately 2000 equipment in operation and for over 30 years no incident has been reported to us.
Indeed, the moving speeds of the hot wire are relatively low and the heating stops when the wire stop . However, if more stringent safety rules we can offer the following security options:
  • Light barriers
  • Security doors sensors opening
  • partial or total carterisation
  •  Fumes extractors

Speed Adjustment After Starting

It allows you to adjust the initial speed rate of the wire from -50% to +50% during cutting.

Example: if a cutout is programmed at 500 mm/min, it can be modified between 250mm/min and 750 mm/min.

This option is very interesting:

  • To refine the precision of the cuts.
  • If there is an error in the programming of the initial speed.
  • If the material to be cut is not homogeneous: humidity, density...

 

Available on: All ranges of machines, included on industrial serie

Elongating Wire System

It is suitable for professional or industrial machines with a wire length not exceeding 1300 mm

Allows you to vary the length of the wire for use in decoupled mode

The elongation of the wire thus increases from 20 or 80 mm to more than 700 mm, offering a significant decoupled

This option is very interesting:

  • It allows you to receive the Stratoconcept software
  • Accepts angles over 45 degrees
  • Constant heating over the entire length of the wire
  • Robust and reliable mechanical system
