Overview

Utilizing both a vertical wire cutting head and a horizontal head the Dual Head ProfileMatic is able to process both flexible and rigid PU foams with its compact design saving floor space by combining two machines into one unit. With its unique batch processing workflow the DPW can pass machining operations from one head to the other with simplicity and ease. The DPW is frequently employed by insulation manufactures for processing raw blocks of rigid foams into precisely cut finished blocks, sheets and/or panels.

ESCO’s DPW (short for Dual ProfileMatic Wire) employs both vertical and horizontal cutting wire heads wrapping the functionality of two machines into one robust package.

The DPW contour wire saw may be used to process both flexible PU foams and rigid PU foams such as Polyisocyanurate (PIR). ESCO’s DPW profile wire saw can create complex finished parts by passing the foam from one cutting head to another.

Common Applications

Block Preparation

Since the DPW contour wire saw can process all six sides of the block of foam the DPW may be used as a blocking saw especially for rigid PU and PIR that have a very hard outer skin.

Sheeting

Many times after block preparation is complete fabricators will then use the DPW dual wire contour saw for sheeting the clean block into sheets. Since the cutting wire can process in any directions sheeting is an efficient process on the DPW.

Profile Cutting

Processing flexible PU block for furniture or seating applications. With the horizontal cutting head the machine will cut the profile pattern of the cushion. Once complete the machine passes the block to the vertical cutting head to cut the profile cut block into sheet of the desired thickness. For more complex cushions more details can be made with the vertical cutting instead of making straight cuts.

Rough Machining / Preprocessing

Rough machining of foam and other technical materials is another use of the DPW. The idea with this cutting strategy is to use the DPW to oversize the desired rough geometry of the part profile. The DPW wire saw can process raw materials with higher yields because the rough part geometry can be nested in high yield layouts within the block versus traditional methods where the block is cut into a series of smaller blocks then the parts are machine to final specification. Rough machining with the DPW is also can save labor, machining time and overall throughput (more parts/unit of time). Since the rough geometry has been completed on the DPW the total machining time required from machining centers is far less than starting from a small block.
