Hot Wires for Cutting

Hot Wires for Cutting

A hot-wire foam cutter is defined as a tool used to cut polystyrene foam and similar materials. The device consists of a thin, taut metal wire, often made of nichrome or stainless steel, or a thicker wire preformed into a desired shape, which is heated via electrical resistance to approximately 200°C. As the wire is passed through the material to be cut, the heat from the wire vaporizes the material just in advance of contact. STYRO has a wide range of cutting wires.
