Model HT-C Carrousel Horizontal Foam Saw


ESCO Model HT-C carrousel slitters are designed for horizontal sheet cutting in high volume. This is achieved with the rotating circular table, which allows continuous cutting in one direction, eliminating the return stroke required with traditional horizontal slitters.


Head Assembly


  • Equipped with a high-tension (HT) cutting head and is available sized for handling 5 or 8 typical blocks at any one time.
  • The rotary table is driven by an AC variable frequency speed controlled drive, giving a top speed of 5RPM (340ft/min).

Blade - Blade Motor - Guide - Sharpener


  • On the HT head, the blades run on 16” (406mm) wheel featuring the same molded urethane elastomer coating as the standard head. 
  • Standard blade is ¾” (19mm) x 0.02” (0.5mm) on the HT head.
  • Blade motor is 10HP and allows the blade to run at a no load speed of 4100FPM (1250m/min)
  • A Teflon coated blade guide 0.084” (2mm) x 3.125” (79mm) wide, die spring tensioned, is supplied with each machine. This can be upgraded to a heavy duty Teflon guide 0.314” (8mm) x 3.125” (79mm) wide or blade guide stabilizer if the material being cut requires additional support.

Controls and Power Requirements


  • Model HT-C carrousel horizontal saws run under full computer control, utilizing a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) for machine operation and a touch screen operator panel for input of commands and machine operation.
  • PLC allows control of the cut thickness with an indexing accuracy of +/- 0.003” (0.0762mm) based on actual head movement and is monitored by electronic position encoders. Calibration of the machine is provided by the PLC through the Operator console.
  • Touch-screen operator controls are mounted on a freestanding podium connected by a flexible conduit so it can be positioned on either side of the machine.
  • Operator screen allows simple entry of required sheet thickness and the number of sheets to be cut of each thickness. Recipe management allows recall of preconfigured cut sequences.
  • Operator console is equipped with an OIT for table and cutting head movement control, allowing the operator to jog the machine for block positioning.
  • Utilizes 3 phase power and may be supplied for 50 or 60Hz operation.
  • Hinged blade guards with locking handles.

Safety Package


Includes blade running light, blade break disconnect switch, operator guards, console mounted emergency stop button, lockable disconnect switch and safety warning labels.


Optional Features


  • An air positioned blade sharpener using long life Borazon™ wheels
  • Vacuum table assembly ; the vacuum is positioned under the blade and uses a 10HP extraction system.
  • The carrousel may be upgraded to include a reversing air-lift assembly to assist in positioning and unloading of blocks on the table.
  • Hydraulic blade tension system
  • Heavy duty blade guide, recommended when cutting material under 3/8” (9.5mm) thick
  • Blade guide stabilizer
