To complete the LINEOMATIC, the new patented SWING BLADE™ CUT-OFF can be used to cut both the conformable non-fibrous foam insulation and standard fiberglass insulation.
The new cut-off is a knife design that slices the insulation rather than the old chop method. The new cut-off also uses a special harden waved cutting edge for slicing the insulation. It also uses patented narrow slot in the cutting stick for the knife to pass thru without touching the cutting stick. This increases the life of the knife.
When switching from fiberglass insulation to conformable non-fibrous foam insulation. A new knife blade maybe required. The fiberglass insulation is very abrasive and will take the fine edge off the knife blade after a period of time. The knife blade will continue to cut and fracture the fiberglass because of the narrow slot in which the knife blade pass thru. When switching from conformable non-fibrous foam insulation a new knife blade is not required. Once programmed, the LINEOMATIC will automatically measure the incoming part and cut off the insulation.
