CNCROi.com can handle projects across a variety of areas, one of this is making custom foam drawer tool inserts for your company!
There are a number of reasons why your company many need these custom foam drawer tool inserts, whether it’s to keep things organized in the shop or to prevent theft, they are fantastic solution towards improving your productivity!
In this case, we used black foam, it’s preferable to white (which is also available) as it doesn’t show the smoke stains from the laser cutting process on the underside. Keep in mind that this is a highly flammable process, we are able to do it safely because we have a gas kit in our laser, vacuum table and power extraction system.
Generally the customer sends us either the CAD files representing the tool layout they want or a line drawing done in pen on white paper to scale which is then scanned to give us the outlines required by our Austrian CNC laser.
Cutting custom foam drawer tool inserts is a very straight forward process, the lines provided to us become the path of our high-powered CO2 laser source (we also have fiber in the same machine). If you want these sitting on a bench or affixed onto a wall, we can make those as well, generally, plywood or a harder material is used for those processes.
The reason why you don’t see much smoke during our foam cutting process is due to the fact that our vacuum table sucks-up all the fumes from underneath the project while our extraction above the work piece does the same.
This keeps the highly combustible foam vapors from igniting as they never build-up in high enough concentrations to become a concern though care is still taken. Aiding both extraction processes is a highly focused “beam of air” going down with the laser to make sure that any fires that do begin are quickly blown out at the source.
The results are crisp, accurate and totally repeatable. Repeatability is important because if you wish to have multiple layers of custom drawer tool inserts, you want things to line-up properly as some tools have greater depth requirements than others.
Regarding shape options, they are infinite. Our specialized wide-format industrial laser can handle just about any shape at any size and we are also capable of fiber marking or annealing metal tools using our fiber laser source as well as cut out the corresponding foam drawer tool inserts.
The power of a foam hammer isn’t very good but if you are looking for novelty gifts, you bet we can cut them out of foam for you! Looking for custom drawer tool inserts? Contact CNCROi.com right now!
