Contour or pressure cutting (sometimes referred to as skiving or 3D skived) is a unique high-speed process that converts soft foam materials into intricate, contoured shapes.
Creating contour cut foam products is a rapid and efficient technique with low tooling costs.
With this technique, foam strips, in either single or multi-layered materials, can be cut into the desired contoured shapes in varying thicknesses and densities. Strips can also be contoured cut to give a specific pattern and 3-dimensional egg-crate like design.
This cutting can provide an economical alternative to conventional molding or thermoforming.
