EPS Foam Hot Wire Contour Cutting Machines

Xycorp’s line of Xydroid EPS foam contour hot wire cutters do just what the name implies — cut contoured foam shapes. As with all of Xycorp’s products our Xydroid CNC foam cutting machines are engineered for precision and constructed with the highest quality machined parts available.

Our CNC Contour Cutting Machines come in a standard and large Format size.

Xydroid Large Format CNC Contour Foam Cutting Machine

The large format Xydroid contour cutting machine has all of the features included with the standard format hot wire cutter and more. The large format models provide longer and wider cutting areas which can provide customers with the capability of producing large foam shapes in a single piece. This cuts down on machine time as well as fabrication labor costs.

We do offer other sizes and can build a custom sized CNC foam cutter to meet specifications if needed.

Large Format CNC Contour Machine Specs

  • Versatile lathe, turntable and router options are available
  • The software is easy to learn and is very user friendly
  • 12’X11’ footprint & 108”x54”x104” cutting area
  • Options also available for up to 204” of wire length

This system is built with a heavy-duty frame and has the ability to cut up to 3 blocks of foam with up to 10 wires (models available with up to 60 wires). This CNC foam cutter is built like a tank!

We offer an optional coordinated software driven third axis for cutting complex columns like spiral/roped columns and 2D and 3D profiles on a turntable style format.

Xydroid Standard Format CNC Contour Foam Cutting Machine

The standard format Xydroid EPS contour cutting machine is a true workhorse. Like all of our machinery, this hotwire foam cutter is designed and built to provide our customers with a superior quality machine that will outperform our a competitors CNC foam cutter.

  • Versatile lathe, turntable and router options are available
  • The software is easy to learn and is very user friendly
  • 10’ x 11’ footprint & 54” x 54” x 104” cutting area

The standard format Xydroid CNC foam cutting system is built with a heavy-duty frame and has the ability to cut up to 3 blocks of foam with up to 10 wires (models available with up to 60 wires).

High yields help reduce waste and save money.

Vertical Cross Arm Configuration

While our standard CNC foam cutting machines are engineered with a horizontal crossarm, we can manufacture machines with a vertical crossarm, for our customers who prefer or require that the hot wires cut vertically,

Contour Machine Options


Choose up the 3 optional features when building your contour machine to greatly expand your cutting capacity:

Plunge Cutter & Router Option

Our plunge cutter/router option turns a contour cutter into a complete 3-in-1 machine. With a 3rd and 4th axis, the machine is capable of plunging down into a slab of EPS foam and rotating to any angle you draw on the SimplePath™ program.

Optional Horizontal Lathe Axis

The horizontal foam lathe includes a rotary axis motor driven head, tail stock, rails, motion control components and software to create very complex columns and other foam shapes in a lathe style format.

This option converts an existing Xydroid hot wire cutter into a lathe-cutting machine. When you’re finished using this option you can get back to contour cutting in minutes. Many shops must have a separate machine to turn columns in this manner.

Vertical Rotary Axis Option

This option includes a rotary axis motor driven removable turntable, motion control components and software to create complex 2D and 3D objects for a Xydroid CNC Foam Cutter. This foam lathe allows fabricators to incorporate standard or rigid hot wire cutting into this coordinated 3rd axis. When finished using this option, simply remove the timing plate and quickly get back to your hot wire cutter.

See below how the optional vertical lathe package works from concept to creation:

  1. The shape begins as a design in our easy-to-use software package
  2. The vertical lathe is loaded with a foam blank and rotates between cuts
  3. The end result is an ornate 3D shape created by a completely automated cutting process

Oversized Contour Machines


For those with a need to cut mass quantities or non-standard EPS block sizes, our non-standard and oversized contour machines are custom sized and configured to meet your meet your production needs.

8 Billet Contour Machine

This oversized foam cutting contour machine custom built for a panel manufacture cuts 8 blocks at a time with precision and deft.

Full Billet Contour Machine

This 26 foot CNC foam cutting machine was developed for block molders and is designed to cut 24′ EPS blocks.

Automatic Panel Positioning Machine

This custom built automatic EPS panel positioning machine that we built for an EPS panel manufacturer is a perfect compliment to a finish post-contoured panels. The machine is designed to perfectly square and cut profiles in foam panels with a hot wire cutter.

Xycorp was founded by and is operated by mechanical engineers with a passion for design, technical innovation, precision, and quality of service. When custom specifications are required, we can engineer and construct a precision performing machine to your exact specifications.
