Intelicam is making available a new four-axis high speed foam cutting CNC router designed for cutting complex curves and machining 3D relief’s for molds.

The router has a five-inch by ten-inch process area, four feet of Z-axis motion and an integrated rotational axis that can clamp a foam block four feet in diameter by almost seven feet long. The all ball screw and servo drive unit can traverse at 2,000 ipm, and comes standard with a six-position tool changer, water cooled spindle with inverter, special designed foam cutting router bits up to 12 inches in length with a one inch diameter shaft, tool height sensor, chip pickup with vacuum.

All moving parts are sealed and protected with baffles from foam particles that will harden over time causing maintenance issues.

The system is priced at less than US$60,000.

The company is also building a companion high speed foam router that replaces the rotational fourth axis with a vacuum table and 15HP vacuum blower.
