The Styropan series of cutting machines of polystyrene allows you to minimize your work time, with quick accurate cuts. Furthermore, with their use it is possible to form the slabs in any thickness, shape or size, in order to meet any style. Easy to handle, they are the ideal tool for the installation of  external thermal insulation of walls, inclined roofs and taper bevel in the perimeter thermal insulation.

 


 General Description – Polystyrene cutting machine Topcut Premium

 


To Topcut Premium 3015 is a handy, flexible cutting machine of expanded EPS and extruded polystyrene (XPS). The slabs to be cut should be clean of glue , adhesives residues or other contaminants . Their configuration according to their manufacturing requirements is quick and easy , whether they are destined for simply cuts or for more complicated cuts , such as for shaping an L shoulder on the slabs or other fittings with angled cuts. The arm - ruler (ruler) can be set at an angle in the range 0-45 0 (vertical) while the handle on which the wire is stretched (bow) can also be shifted ( horizontally ) at an angle in the range 0-55 0. The device operates with a low voltage adapter (42V) connected to a power supply 220V. The adapter is wired XLR with handle (bow). The wire is heated by pressing the button located in the center of the handle .

 

The machine has been made in Germany with the following                                         technical characteristics.

Note:

 
It is important to read the following safety use instructions carefully and completely. 

 -The operator of the unit should be trained and be familiar with the device . During the operation of the unit, the use of the appropriate personal protective equipment should be made and all necessary measures required when performing a hot work should be taken.

-The unit can be operated only with the original cables supplied with the purchase. The use of other cables can lead to destruction of the adapter or at increased risk of fire or other damage.

-The use of the unit should be done outside or in a properly ventilated area.

-The device operates with a low voltage adapter connected to power supply of 220V. It is therefore important to protect the device from moisture. The operation in air or other moisture conditions are not allowed!

-In case repairs need to be made, disconnect the device from the power supply! Repairs are made only by authorized personnel.

-The wire is very hot during cutting and should not be contacted in any way . This would result in serious burns . Therefore, it is recommended to use suitable protective gloves . Furthermore , the wire is under high tension . During operation, there is the possibility that the wire be cut and a spark appears . Therefore, the use therefore of protective safety glasses is mandatory!

- Before starting work, all machine screws must be tightened as well as the outputs must be connected correctly.

-Before using you should ensure the stable placement and removal of sources of risk from the surroundings.

-If the wire is not heated after prolonged continuous use, the adapter can be overheated and must be left to cool.

-The button must not be always pressed! (fire hazard)

-Do not touch the wire with your hands!
