What is the hotwire cutting?

The Hotwire cutting is a cutting process extremely efficient and appreciated for modelling and shaping eps or similar rigid foam.
The cut with hotwire consists in the vaporization of the polystyrene foam because of the heating.
In fact, when the hot wire is passing through the material, it vaporises the foam with the radiant heat.

The hotwire foam cutters are tools commonly used for cutting polystyrene (also called Styrofoam or eps), but they are able to cut many other different type of foams.

The main component for is cutting wire, often made of Nickel Crome or Titanium, that is heated by a resistor up to 360-380C°

The cutting wires can have different diameters (usually goes from 0,15 to 0,50 mm , but also there are tick wires 1 mm diameter that are can be shaped by hand).

The limits of cutting for this technology are restrained.
The depth of cutting depends of the wire length.
