Overview

The ESCO Model AF cross-cut saw is designed to automatically cut pre-selected lengths of flexible foam from the slab produced at the end of a slabstock machine.

The operator digitally enters the required cut length, which then controls the cutting head to automatically activate when that length is detected. The machine carriage head speed is synchronized with that of the conveyor for ultimate accuracy in continual cutting across the face of the moving foam. The unique expanding roller conveyor supports the foam. After the cut, the head remains on the opposite side of the conveyor, while the machine carriage returns to the original starting position. The cutting head will cut across the slab in the opposite direction to be ready for the next cut. This double cutting ability allows the operator in the opposite direction to be ready for the next cut. This double cutting ability allows the operator to make short sample cuts where required or trim the ends of buns. Stationary models (model SF) are also available.
