The milling of foams with our CNC machines is generally not a problem. Only a few small things have to be taken into consideration during the foam processing. It is usually not easy to avoid that loose strips, , do not wrap around the milling cutter during the milling process(also shown in our small video of our reseller from Austria). Precautionary care should be taken here to ensure that the milling paths are largely overlapping and really neat chips are produced. For this purpose it is absolutely necessary to have a super-sharp cutter!
HSC milling PU foam
Foam processing by milling is best done with our machines in the HSC speed range. The HSC milling (high – speed milling) requires an extremely sharp milling cutter and a machine which is at able to implement these speeds in a precise manner! The High-Z of the T series is predestined for this purpose.
Examples of milling foam – Shadowboards
Here, we will show you some examples in form of pictures and videos of customers showing the processing of foams. For example, for shadowboards! The foam processing is relatively easy because you can do without a cooling system completely. However, not all foam types can be machined with the milling machine, since some are simply too soft.
Milling no – cutting yes
In these cases, however, the material can also be comfortably cut. A report is being developed and will be published here in the section CNC cutting.
