HVAC Insulation Cutting Equipment from Engel

In addition to our array of different machines for sheet metal ductwork fabrication including coil lines and versatile roll formers, Engel also offers automatic insulation cutting solutions that improve the duct fabrication process by ending the tedious manual process. Engel’s Swing Blade Cut-Off can cut both the conformable non-fibrous foam insulation and standard fiberglass insulation. Featuring a newer new knife design that incorporates the use of a special hardened waved cutting edge for slicing the insulation rather than the old chop method, the Swing-Blade is available as a new option for new coil lines or as a retrofit for existing Engel coil lines. Please reach out to us to learn more about adding this automatic function to install Armcell and k-flex type insulation in your duct line. For your review, below are all the machine and equipment solutions available from Engel for HVAC insulation cutting — please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have a particular application or operational requirement that might require a customized solution… we’d love to help.

Engel Swing-Blade HVAC Insulation Cutting System

Engel Swing-Blade HVAC Insulation Cutting System

The Engel Swing-Blade HVAC Insulation Cutting System can be used to cut both the conformable non-fibrous foam insulation and standard fiberglass insulation. This cut-off is a special hardened waved cutting edge knife design that slices the insulation rather than the old chop method. It also uses a patented narrow slot in the cutting stick for the knife to pass thru without touching the cutting stick which increases the life of the knife. When switching from fiberglass insulation to conformable non-fibrous foam insulation a new knife blade may be required. The fiberglass insulation is very abrasive and will take the fine edge off the knife blade after a period of time. The knife blade will continue to cut and fracture the fiberglass because of the narrow slot in which the knife blade passes through. When switching from conformable non-fibrous foam insulation a new knife blade is not required. NOTE: ARMA-FLEX™ open-cell forms into corners of duct, cuts to non-stretched lengths, able to be pinned and glued "in-line" and "on-the-fly." Do not confuse with AP Armaflex closed-cell usable for fittings.
