AUXILLARY POWER CONTROLLER (NWFW/NWRW11 ONLY)(8 AMP FUSE) 5' POWER/6' GATOR CORD
HOT WIRE SHAPE WIRE POWER CONTROLLER
Designed to Cut EPS Foam, but May Cut Other Materials
Special Step Down Transformer for User Safety
Uses Heavy Duty NWFW, NWRW11 & NWRW16 Hot Shape Wire
APC Heats up a minimum of 1' to a length of 3' of Shape Wire
Variable Heat Dial Hot Wire Power Supply
Custom length shape wire units also available upon request.
Note: Heated Wire expands when hot. If the spring is too tight the hot wire may break restricting operation of mechanism. If too loose, the cut will be sloppy. Re-adjustment of tension may be necessary from time to time.
Hot Wire Power Supply – Use nothing longer than a 50 foot 12/3 grounded extension cord. Set the temperature dial on the controller to zero (0). Turn on the hot wire power supply and adjust the dial until the wire glows orange. Immediately back off the controller until the heated wire just begins to turn from orange to gray. This is the optimum foam cutting temperature of the wire. Anything hotter will cause premature wire failure or anything cooler will require too much feed pressure on the wire causing premature failure. If the heated wire is too hot, the cut may not be as accurate as you would like. A wire that is too hot will melt the foam too quickly at the beginning of the cut and lss quickly as the wire cools off resulting in an inaccurate cut.
- Use only the recommended wire.
- Do not use this equipment in wet or damp conditions.
- Use only grounded receptacles.
