When we talk about the CNC machines for molds making, it is easy to think of metalworking equipment such as engraving and milling machines and CNC machining centers. The cnc foam router is a kind of equipment engineered to mill molds or patterns out of non-metal and aluminum materials. With an affordable price, it can meet the production requirements of various mold fabrication very well. Our sales staff are often asked by customers: What materials can a cnc foam router work with? Today we will talk about this in detail.

There are many models of machines in terms of size and configuration level. They are widely used in foundry mold fabrication, municipal statues, auto prototyping, props, and other 3D polystyrene shapes.


Generally, small size Styrofoam cnc router has a relatively low configuration. For example, they may come with hybrid motors and drivers. This machine type is sufficient to work on foam and wood.

Suppose the material you want to mill is composite material, Epoxy Tooling board, or aluminum. In that case, this type of machine cannot meet your needs. For such an application, we should choose a foam router machine whose configuration is on another level. It should adopt a bus control system, a spindle dedicated for mold machining or a mechanical spindle, a Japanese Yaskawa drive system, large-size linear guide rails and bearings, and an integrally cast iron bed. If we use this Styrofoam cnc machine to process more rigid materials, such as epoxy tooling board or aluminum, we’ll get perfect finishing. Many plants that make pumps or valves would like to go with this kind of machine.
