CNC Foam Cutter and Vacuum System
Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I used this system to develop and produce UAV components and personal projects. Both interests have run their course and the system is for sale.
The CNC cutter is the second of 2 machines built by Greg Nuspel of Calgary. The first was used by MIT in their aerospace lab. Mine is the refined version that I had Greg resurrect and complete after he lost interest. A work of art.
CNC FOAM CUTTER SYSTEM cuts foam parts up to 54" long, 24" wide and 15" high using Gilles Muller GMFC software, Hobby CNC 4 axis controller and Vexta stepper motors. Components are CNC machined aluminum, delrin, and steel. Aluminum base is 36" x 65" x 37 " high and disassembles for transport. 3 table bases and 2 wire bows are included for different project sizes.
The software is GMFC from France. You download GMFC for free or download and buy the GMFC PRO licence.
Here is a link for software and licence detail: http://gm.cnc.free.fr/en/index.html
VACUUM BAGGING SYSTEM is my own fabrication. It utilizes the base of the CNC cutter table for all operations to maintain perfect alignment of the finished part throughout fabrication. This includes an expandable foam autoclave with electric oil filled heater for curing foam parts in situ on the table. The vac system can also be used stand alone for other operations such as pulling canopies,plastic parts, composite fuselage and hollow composite wing fabrication. I also used it to balsa sheet foam wings at a low vac setting.
Vac system consists of a 110V Gast vacuum pump, new 8KG propane tank as vac reservoir, Aero Composites vacuum regulator switch, 12" x 12" vac table for small parts, connections, bag seals and some bulk mylar and other supplies.
Included is Phil Barnes DVD step by step instructions for vacuum bagging foam wings.
