Our vertical foam saw gives us precision finishing capability, helping us refine and reduce sheets cut by the horizontal foam saw. We have several vertical saw tables in different sizes, giving us the ability to work on a large or small project with a machine sized to match. This saw is utilized more for tailoring products than the initial cutting of bulk foam buns, with a 1/2 inch wide blade allowing for more exact cuts than the horizontal saw’s 3/4 inch blade. Vertical saws come in a range of sizes and can weigh 2,300 to 3,000 pounds, depending on outfitted features.
Unlike the predominantly computer-automated system of the horizontal saw, the vertical saw requires its operator to guide pieces through the blade manually to make cuts, much like woodworking band saws. The blade is articulated and has a 45° range of motion that lets the operator taper or grade the pieces individually. However, it is only able to cut along a plane that follows the angle to which the blade is set, not form contoured curves. This saw is used to fabricate products that require a higher degree of detail and customization, such as tapered seating cushions, or forms like body wedges and knee pillows that may need to be created on an individual basis.
