ESCOs Third-generation horizontal profiler [HPX]; Utilizes a rigid, welded steel frame with a revised head design that employs a movable pulley system. The revised system is a departure from traditional four pulley moving head designs seen in use today.

The new footprint of the machine and safety guarding enhances the usability of the HPX by placing the operator closer to the cutting area and workpiece. This allows for faster job setup, more accurate blade alignment and quality control of the workpiece.

The horizontal contour foam saw has many applications and options making it a very versatile foam fabrication machine. ESCO’s horizontal blade CNC foam saw is most commonly used in furniture, bedding, packaging, medical, automotive and aerospace industries.

Common Applications

Bedding, furniture, packaging, medical, insulation, automotive, aerospace

Commonly Processed Materials

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