2 Machines in one
Double Cut is a cnc foam cutting machine conceived for cutting the blocks of expanded polystyrene along 4 different sides and getting the highest accuracy.
This hotwire foam cutter is working with CNC technology (computer numerical control) and is equipped with 8 independent axes. Furthermore is possible to add as extra axis the vertical turntable and the horizontal lathe.
Using Double Cut is possible to execute cuts along the 4 sides of the foam blocks and is not necessary to move or rotate it
Simple solutions for complex foam cutting. The process for cutting the blocks of expanded polystyrene, used by Double Cut is the most efficient and accurate because the operator does not need to move the foam block or turn it losing the centre point.
Double Cut is a versatile machine recommended for large production of acoustic insulating panels, foam sheets for the external wall insulation system (EIFS), eps / xps slabs, inserts for blocks and any other shape in 2d and 3d.
What you can make
Developed for those companies who has the specific requirement of cutting the blocks of expanded / extruded polystyrene along the 4 sides without moving it from the original position.
Two hot wires orthogonally positioned and driven by one controller will execute the cut.
This is a system developed for reducing the production time and increase the accuracy.
This machine is recommended for the production of foam packaging, eps slabs, thermal and acoustic panels, cornices, mouldings, foam inserts for blocks, precast, decorative elements, letters.

Quality made in Italy and Technical support in multiple languages.
AFTER SALES ASSISTANCE AND SUPPORT
The support team Nettuno Sistemi is able to offer assistance for our CNC foam cutters in English, French, Italian and Spanish.
This guarantee to all of our customers worldwide to get a proper training during the installation, but also a continuous and efficient support during the years.
“MADE IN ITALY” QUALITY.
Handcrafted care for the construction, high quality of components, CNC technology combined with the software Nettuno and our experience, are the warranties of getting the best CNC foam cutting machine.
Technology MADE IN ITALY correlated with an ASSISTANCE without borders.
Design with open frame
Double Cut has an open frame structure and this helps the operator when has to load and unload the block of expanded polystyrene from the table top
8 Independent Axes
Double Cut works with 8 independent axes and as extra is possible to add the vertical turntable (9th axis).
It is the perfect CNC hotwire foam cutter for who need to cut eps blocks alonge 4 sides with the highest accuracy.
The 2 cutting wires are orthogonally positioned and driven by one controller for executing the cut.
The most interesting feature, that makes Double Cut very accurate, is that thanks to the 2 cutting wires, is it not requested to rotate the foam block and the will not be the risk to lose the centre position of the EPS block.
Heavy Duty and reliable
The structure of Double Cut is very strong and heavy duty because is made using large profile of aluminium, steel and linear guides to drive the 8 independent axes.

Two cutting planes with wires orthogonally positioned.
The two cutting planes of Double Cut have been studied and designed for those companies who need to process cuts along 4 sides of the EPS / XPS blocks, preserving the position of the foam blocks.
As matter of fact, when operating these kind of cutting process , using a traditional hotwire CNC foam cutter (single wire) the operator have to rotate the block of expanded polystyrene and there is the risk to lo lose the center position on the tabletop.
Double Cut using the 2 cutting wires orthogonally positioned can process the cut of Styrofoam blocks allowing the perfect parallelism between the cuts on the different sides.
8 independent axes and vertical turntable controlled by software.
Working with 8 independent axes and Vertical turntable, Double cut can create impressive and highly detailed foam shape, processing the block of expanded polystyrene all along the 4 sizes.
The software Nettuno, with the user-friendly interface and advanced applications can control all the different step of the cutting process
One control for the work plans
The two cutting wires of Double Cut cutting are managed by a single control; therefore, the operation of the entire machine system is interconnected, despite the machine being equipped with two work planes.
The software Nettuno is able to recognize in each moment of the cutting process, the position of both wires.
It means that with Double Cut will never occur a collision between the 2 wires.
This helping the operators saving time and money because, even if is using a machine with 2 cutting plans, don’t have to waste time for replacing the cutting wire after collision.

Using the shapeable wire it will be very easy to make foam shapes with grooves or engraves.
The shapeable wire / carver is installed on the slider of the CNC foam cutter and moves following the path drawn in CAD.
The combination between the handcraft accuracy and the technology CNC is giving as result unique curved models that a standard straight cutting wire, could not give.
This tool is used for creating foam moulding and decorations like capitals, foam columns, pillars, parapets, crowns and much more.
The shapeable wire combined with Vertical or Horizontal turntable allows making great decorated foam twisted columns.
Wireless Handheld Keypad
With the wireless Handheld Keypad Nettuno is possible to do different operations:
JOG MOVING,PLAY, PAUSE, STOP, ADJUST CUTTING SPEED, ROTATING TURNTABLe , CONTROL THE POSITION OF AXES
All of these operations can be done staying close to the cutting wire while you still control the machine from remote, not using the main control (power station).
Useful when you need to execute manual moving and cuts of foam blocks
The Vertical Turntable, also called rotating table, is an optional used for cutting 3D foam shapes, symmetrical or asymmetrical irregular, spheres, columns, 3D foam characters and figures.
This optional, can be also combines with the Shapeable Wire for making grooves on 3D Styrofoam shapes. (like details on coke bottles)
