Model AVB

One of the newest additions to the ESCO family of foam cutting products, our automatic blocking saw will turn your long slabstock foam into manageable buns. It removes the outer skin and cuts the long slab into the desired widths and lengths. The blocking saw has a dual-edge continuous knife blade that is rotated 90 degrees for squaring the bun. The blade can cut in either direction for optimum cut path sequence. The blade passes through the bun before rotating to ensure a good square corner.
