Foam Cutting Equipment from Riema USA LLC

Clearfield, Utah, Feb. 5 2007 – Riema USA LLC – There are many uses of hard foam in construction and other industries: insulation of walls and roofs (such as rigid insulation, Insulated Concrete Forms, Exterior Insulation and Finishing Systems), design work (like on stucco and architectural trim), concrete work, packaging, hobbies, and many more.

In construction, the main use of foam is for insulation. Because of increasing energy costs, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends to “use higher density insulation, such as rigid foam boards, in cathedral ceilings and on exterior walls” which will achieve a R-value “up to two times greater than most other insulation materials.” Another great use of hard foams in construction is for trim on the exterior and interior of buildings as done by many contractors with foam cutting equipment.

The problem many contractors run into while working with hard foam is its difficulty to be cut into a desired shape. Knifes and saws create un-even and jagged edges. Further, they are never exact, create an immense mess, and one small cut takes a long time to finish.

By using foam cutting equipment, these problems can be solved very easily; Cuts can be made fast, exact, and without creating a large mess. Contractors can see an increase in productivity as well as a decrease in costs right away. Costs savings include: less time spent on each project and a hefty deduction in wasted material. Other benefits include an increase in quality and making the job easier for your workers or yourself.

Most foam cutting equipment cuts foam by using a heated wire. It glides through the foam just like a hot knife cuts through butter. A company that manufactures foam cutting equipment for every industry and use is Riema USA LLC, a Utah based company. Of course many tools on the market have different features. The L-G-S 135 R from Riema USA combines almost all features found on hot wire cutting machines into one affordable and portable package while making the operation of it very easy.

Other useful features found on this tool are a cutting arm that can be tilted to cut vertical angles, an angular adjustable strike ledge to cut horizontal angles, a catch plate to prevent cut off material from falling to the floor, a spring suspension to extend the life of the cutting wire, a strong transformer to finish cuts faster, and a removable cutting arm for custom or tapered cuts, and many more.
