Tech Specs

 

dust extraction

The Wintech Fastwire machine is supplied with a perforated dust extractor head that allows fitting to a wide variety of commonly available dust extractor units. The dust extractor head surrounds the cutting wire and the guide wheel and captures dust produced by the cutting process and carried out by the exiting cutting wire.

hot wire option for polystyrene cutting

 

manual option with manual wire positioning

The Wintech Fastwire machine can be fitted with one of two hot-wire options for expanded polystyrene (EPS) contour cutting.

The cost effective manual option provides up to 10 hot-wires that are easily manually positioned by the operator to the required quantity and spacing. When not in use, the hot-wire pans are slid up and out of the way of the cutting frame in preparation for cutting with the abrasive cutting wire.

The Compuset option provides automatic positioning of the hot-wires in 20 or 40 wire capacity. With this option, an additional cutting frame is included on the Fastwire machine with the cutting wires stored in a magazine ready for use.

 

compuset option with automatic wire loading

To load the wires, the operator simply specifies the quantity and spacing of wires and presses the load switch. The machine takes care of the loading. Multiple spacings can be set, making jobs like sheeting a simple and fast exercise. This option is available as a stand alone machine also.

Both options come complete with full voltage control system and comprehensive safety systems.

With the hot-wires, the Fastwire machine can be used to reap the productivity gains that come of multiple wire hot-wire cutting, whether it be simple sheeting or complex common line cutting.

 

variety of machine sizes

Foam blocks come in a variety of sizes and customers require a variety of different profiles. To accommodate these varied needs and available floor spaces, the Fastwire machine can be supplied to accommodate maximum block widths of 1300, 2200, 2500, or 2700 mm and lengths of 3000 or 5000 mm.

 

pipe insulation cutting

Cutting of pipe insulation is a common application in the use of foam. The Wintech Fastwire machine is not only suitable for performing this function, but automates it with ease. Simply specify the inner and outer diameters of the pipe, the overlap type and the Profiler software will quickly and accurately produce the profile for nesting, costing and cutting. Different size sections can be nested in the same block to increase yield and throughput.

 

cutting wires to suit a range of materials

To compliment the versatility of the Fastwire machine, a variety of cutting wires are available to suit the multitude of materials and applications possible.

Cutting wires, each with 13 cores for strength, are available in a standard wrap, not unlike a guitar string, a more aggressive spiral-wrap with a spiral ridge profile, and an even more aggressive X-wrap with two crossing spiral ridges for very dense materials.

 

powerful software

The Wintech Profiler software is exactly the type of feature rich package required to fully exploit the advantages of a Wintech Fastwire Contour Cutter. It is simple to use so that operators have a minimal learning curve, and yet has many features available to ensure that the software keeps pace with a business's many requirements.

 

in summary

Wintech's range of computer controlled Contour Machine Cutters are designed to help foam converters improve their productivity, efficiency and quality.
