Foam Factory, Inc. Custom Cuts Foam Faster Thanks to New CNC Machine

Share Article

Sophisticated CNC machinery improves production speed, meaning manufacture and shipping speeds are greatly improved, even if those orders are custom-cut foam.

Foam is an extremely versatile substance, and our customers use it for everything.

Foam Factory, Inc. is excited to announce the ability to produce and ship packaging foam to Canada and the United States with even greater efficiency. The company has installed a new CNC machine to its 310,000 square foot facility, adding to the existing technology that makes the Foam Factory, Inc. a leading name in custom-cut foam. This new technology cuts foam shapes, with the ability to fine tune precision cutting instruments.

“Foam is an extremely versatile substance, and our customers use it for everything,” said Carlo Badalamenti, marketing manager of the Foam Factory, Inc. “CNC machines are the perfect implements to work with it. This new CNC machine will improve our capability to receive custom orders and ship them to the customer faster.”

A CNC horizontal machine utilizes a computer, and a fully moveable blade, in order to create a design from scratch. The machinery is capable of handling high density foam sheets up to 5LB in density, able to cut clean lines and sharp angles. Blades cut into the foam with full 360 degree range of motion while a bun moves the foam sheet. Using this technique, the CNC machine is able to truly craft a three-dimensional object out of foam with precise detail.

The items produced through CNC machines find many uses in individual and corporate life. Jewelry stores, for instance, order custom foam inserts to hold rings and pendants, coin collectors use them to display their collections, and manufacturers all over the world use specially-designed foam shapes and sheets to protect fragile products during transit.

Blades use a sawing motion, which can leave some rough edges and markings during manufacture, but the Foam Factory, Inc. reviews every piece for quality. Part of that review process means manually smoothing out these rough edges for the perfect finish. The Foam Factory, Inc. is already utilizing this new technology. Custom-cut foam sheets, mattresses, and packaging orders will have an improved delivery time thanks to this efficient production process.
