Foam

Create the most precise and smooth cuts with the perfect foam tool solution. 

Delicate solutions for every foam Application

Foams have a wide range of applications from prosthetics and camera cases through to wall panelling for office fit outs and flooring on sea crafts. Foams must be treated differently to timber or harder plastics regarding tooling and working parameters. Soft foams are highly susceptible to tear out and melting.  Some foams can be machined effectively with spiral cutters, whilst others require oscillating or drag knives for effective cutting. Router bits used on foam are designed to shear the material very delicately and have polished flutes to allow the chips to glide over the tool with minimal friction.
