Sign companies manufacturing and producing signs are doing so either by using manual cutters or by outsourcing the project to a company that will produce the cuts for them. Using manual cutters, such as hot knives, arch cutters, sculpture tools, or manual router is usually slow, noisy, exhausting at times and can make a lot of dust. Using an outside source to do the work can be expensive and can take time until the project is done, not always on time, and then some additional work is still needed to produce the required results, such as sanding, coating, painting etc. On top of that, sign companies wanting to use a hot wire CNC foam cutters, currently have to spend between $25,000-35,000 on one machine alone. Those machines in the market today are big and expensive and do not provide a low cost solution. |
In the market today, there are no specialized machines for the sign industry, which have to settle for generalized high-cost foam cutters. Foamlinx LLC, based in California has developed CNC Hot Wire Foam Cutters especially for the sign industry. They are operated by a computer and cutting software (numerically controlled). The machine can cut EPS, XPS and EPP types of foam, being able to produce 3D interior and exterior signs, logos, monument signs, foam numbers and letters, theme props, displays and architectural signs, and much more. Foamlinx Sign Cutters are designed in 4 sizes, to fit every sign manufacturer needs: From 3’ x 2’ x 1’ for the smallest machine up to 8’ x 4’ x 3’ for the largest machine, and will be sold for $5000-10,000 accordingly, half of the current market price for similar machine. In addition, Foamlinx supply full software support for the sign foam cutters.
Foamlinx new Sign Cutters will be sold with mechanical and electronic parts, hot wire power supply, stepper motors, hot wire, computer and software. Foamlinx Sign Cutters will be very user friendly, not the complicated hard to understand type of machines, with assembly time of less than an hour. They will have a cutting speed of 30” per minute, thus able to cut multiple signs at the same time. These new capabilities will save the sign companies time and costs and will free some men power that was previously busy with manual cutting, or waiting for the outsourced company to be able to provide the cuts on time. The lead time for providing the projects will shorten significantly, enabling the companies to produce multiple projects at the same time, thus enhancing the profits.
In addition to the new line of sign cutters, starting in 2012, Foamlinx will also offer a special affordable Polyurea coating, making the project resembles plastics. The polyurea is hard and fast drying and an extremely durable coating, making any sign or project resistant for break damages or weather corrosions. Shipping the signs from one place to another will be much safer, as the polyurea coating will prevent it from breakage. This coating is completely safe and the coated project can be painted with either water-based paint, or with any oil-based paint. Using Foamlinx coating services will not just make any project breakage resistant, but will also save the company costs, as buying a coating machine can be very pricy, while Foamlinx already has this technology handy and ready to be used.
