Overview

ESCO’s Horizontal Profiler (HP) utilizes a band knife or tooth blade for fast and accurate profile cutting of flexible polyurethane foams. The horizontal contour foam saw has many applications and options making it a very versatile foam fabrication machine. Shipping standard with a manual turntable the machine may be configured with various options such as automatic turntables, turntables with conveyor belts for automation loading and unloading, a block clamping/hold down system, center blade guide system and finally a blade sharpening system. ESCO’s horizontal blade CNC foam saw is most commonly used for furniture, packaging and mattress production.

The Horizontal Profiler uses a continuous blade, making it an excellent choice for cutting flexible PU, viscoelastic memory and Latex foam, and semi-rigid high ILD PU foam. Used for a wide range of applications in the bedding and furniture, packaging, medical, insulation, and automotive industries.

Common Applications

Bedding, furniture, packaging, medical, insulation, automotive

Commonly Processed Materials

PUR soft foam, PUR HR foam, viscoelastic foam, latex, leightweight rebond foams, Basotect®

Overview

  • The single console unit provides the operator with control over the entire machine. The console includes the computer/display, keyboard and mouse, switches and indicator.

    ESCOView's "main screen" provides primary control of the machine and its operation(s) including live updates on cutting progress and machine status.

    ESCOView is a Windows based software program engineered for this machine that controls the functions and operations of the Horizontal Profiler. This program enables users to automate cutting operations for imported (drafted) sketches, profiles and contours.

    ESCODraw software allows the user to create profiles and contours directly at the control console. This provides users with greater capabilities at the machine, without additional importing.

    ESCODraw Advanced Nesting software allows an unlimited number of shapes to be scheduled for production based on material type, thickness and delivery time required. The parts are nested using complex algorithms that are transparent to the operator, resulting in a nested layout that maximizes material usage and minimizes overall cut time.

Operator Controls

  • PC Based operator terminal mounted on a freestanding pedestal
  • The horizontal profiler can be operated in both a manual and automatic mode, from a local operator console or remote control center through ethernet / wireless communications

Blade Assembly

  • Variable speed knife blade
  • Siemens cnc motion controls
  • Pneumatic blade tension
  • Precision balanced blade wheels with elastomer tires
  • Optional roller hold-down assembly
  • Optional center blade guide/stabilizer

Table Assembly

  • The turntable assembly consists of a steel tubular base that supports precision square rail guides, an aluminum extruded frame that is driven along the base frame and supports the rotating components, and an aluminum extruded frame that pivots on a center shaft and supports the conveyor bed. In standard units that do not include a turntable, all other components are identical except the rotational mechanism and conveyor components

Power Requirements

  • 240/480 VAC, 3-Phase, 60 HZ
  • Clean, dry compressed air
  • Optional electrics available. Contact your salesperson today.
