Charlotte, North Carolina – The latest contour cutting equipment from Edge Sweets, the Mini VPX, was on display at the Edge Sweets stand at UTECH North America. The company claims it is one of the smallest machines that is capable of processing industrial grade foams.
According to sales and service engineer Brett Hungerford, 16 of these smaller footprint VPX 5088 machines have already been installed in customer facilities.
‘The machines have full CNC Siemens controllers,’ he said. ‘This is unique – a lot of the competition have proprietary controllers.’
Another new machine, an improved HPX horizontal profiler is close to launch. It will be ready to run by the end of September, Hungerford said. After testing, they hope to offer them to customers by the first quarter of 2019 at the latest.
‘We are very busy, but keeping on top of new projects,’ he added. These include a new generation of convoluter.
