What is the EPS Foam CNC Router?

EPS Foam CNC Router is designed for styrofoam processing. It does a good job in carving or cutting of large scale workpieces in different materials. Such as wood, aluminum, styrofoam, but not for steel, iron, etc. 

Enhancement / Upgrade Version:

The structures, tables, CNC kits among Foam CNC Router machines are more or less the same, but they always have different spindles, this also led to a difference in price and machining ability. For Basic type and common usage, it has the same spindle as 3 axis CNC; For a heavy-duty and long time working, we recommend it equipped with an ATC spindle; For complex surface carving, a swing spindle is better; Sometimes, one or more rotary devices(4th axis rotary table) are also needed, please come to our sales manager for more advice.

Foam Router Bit

When buying the best CNC foam cutting machine, customers are usually prone to choose a good foam CNC machine with the best foam cutting router bits. Therefore, foam router bit has become one of the most important factors in choosing the best foam CNC router for sale. Here, I will make a brief introduction to CNC foam cutting router bits.

For the common or entry-level foam CNC router, it is usually equipped with foam router kits like a cutting spindle, motor and drive, control system, working table, inverter, linear guide, reducer, and software. But for the other upgrade foam CNC machines, they are also added with a rotary device, press roller, linear/ carousel automatic tool changer magazine, lubrication system, cooling system, spray device, etc.

Don’t worry, Blue Elephant promises to provide customers with customized service. So you can make any reasonable request of which kinds of CNC router bits for foam to use based on your preferences and processing needs.

Types of Foam CNC Router Machine

Foam carving machines can be divided into various types according to different functions. The following are some main foam cutting routers for sale.
ATC CNC Foam Router
This is a type of foam CNC router equipped with an automatic tool changer magazine. Added with a linear auto changer magazine or carousel auto tool changer, it can not only automatically change different tools but also complete more patterns and complex engraves. It has the advantages of fast cutting speed, low maintenance cost, high engraving accuracy, etc. Moreover, it reduces the interference of manpower, which save a lot of labor and time, as well as improves work efficiency.
5 Axis Foam CNC Router
The 5-axis foam cutting router is one of the most high-end and multi-functional CNC machines for sale. Usually, the 5 axis eps CNC router can be designed with more horizontal or vertical drilling heads or rotary axis to complete more complex projects. First of all, it has a higher Z axis, which can process most of the workpieces with a very large size and scale for helping big foam manufacturing factories. Secondly, it does not require multiple clamping when processing complex engraving. And it can be formed at only one time, which will ensure the high accuracy of the work piece and improve the processing efficiency at the same time. Thirdly, the 5 axis foam carving machine can realize more functions such as cutting, engraving, drilling, slotting, milling, carving, etc. Furthermore, it is more flexible and can realize high-precision processing of curved surface and 3D products.

How Much Does A Foam CNC Router Cost?

The foam CNC router price depends on many factors, such as the type, size, CNC kits, and so on. For Blue Elephant EPS styrofoam CNC router machines, the small foam cutting machine price often ranges from $30, 000 to $80, 000. While the large foam CNC router price usually ranges from $35, 000 to $90, 000. And if you want to add some extra high-end or upgrade foam router bits, the foam cutting machine price will be higher. Maybe the new foam CNC machine price can reach more than $100, 000. So the CNC router foam Cutting machine price will be decided by your designs.

How do You Cut Foam with a Foam CNC Router?

Use computer-aided design (CAD) software to establish and optimize the design according to the pseudo-content object of the foam packaging. Through computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software, the design dimensions are converted into specific digital instructions. Documentation information must also be converted into a language that the foam CNC engraving machine understands - G code. The program basically tells the machine what to do, such as the size and depth of the cut, and the tool path to follow. When the NC machine receives the G code, with the appropriate head and material, the final product can be cut out of the foam. Sophisticated foam CNC cutting machines and sharp blades allow the operator to cut any shape out of the foam materials.

How to Use the Foam CNC Router Machine Make Money?

The foam CNC router is also known as the foam cutting router and foam carving machine. Therefore, it can realize CNC cutting projects and CNC engraving ideas to bring you profits. For example, it can realize cutting foam with CNC router to design a lot of industrial foam molds for large factories. In addition, the CNC foam router machines can also realize cutting foam on CNC router to make interesting foam status and 3D foam models for decoration or advertising industry. At the same time, such a kind of styrofoam CNC router is able to engrave nice 2D or 3D patterns on foam boards to produce many good products.

And the most common business which benefits more from eps CNC routers is the model industry. Because, the foam CNC router cutting machine can realize CNC foam carving of large styrofoam models like foam car models, foam ship models, foam airplane models, etc. While those big foam models have the advantages of vivid appearance, good storage, convenient movement, light weight, easy production, and low cost. Therefore, more and more customers tend to order large foam models from them. So that, the foam model industry will make more money but cost less.

Precautions for Using the Foam CNC Router

1.Keep it clean
A cluttered environment can easily lead to accidents. Do not place it in a dark and humid area. And do not use the styrofoam CNC router in a place with flammable liquids and gases.
2.Reasonable use
Operate in accordance with the reasonable workflow allowed by the system. Then the processing efficiency will be higher and the effect will be better and safer. Do not use low-power spindles for heavy work, and do not use machining tools indiscriminately.
3.Connect firmly
Do not pull the connection cable or pull out the power plug. You must keep away cable from heat sources and inflammable and explosive materials, and avoid contact with sharp objects.
4.Fix safely
Fix the material before processing. Moreover, pay attention that it is absolutely forbidden to fix it by hand.
5.Proper maintenance
Keep the equipment clean, lubricate in time, and regularly inspect and maintain. Thus it can give full play to the performance of the equipment, prolong its service life, and ensure the safety and reliability of the performance of the entire foam CNC equipment.
6.Cut off the power supply in time
When changing the tool, the power supply of the machining spindle motor must be cut off. And if replacing the processing material, you should better cut off the power supply of the numerical control equipment.

7.Prohibit piracy 

Pirated engraving or CAM software and incorrect machining tools are prohibited. It is easy to produce processing waste, which will seriously damage the CNC equipment and even cause personal injury.
