Lockformer Vulcan 1600 Fiberglass and Insulation Foam Waterjet Cutting System

Cutting insulation manually is a slow, costly and inexact procedure. The Lockformer Vulcan 1600 Fiberglass and Insulation Foam Waterjet Cutting System automates the insulation cutting and fabrication process for mechanical contractors delivering an unrivaled level of quality and efficiency. The machine will cut up to 4″ fiberglass or 2″ foam insulation at a maximum positioning speed of 3,000 IPM. Whether you require precise insulation shapes for square to rounds, radius elbows or transitions, the Lockformer Vulcan 1600 Waterjet Cutting System can deliver savings of over 95%. With its precision speed and efficiency, the Lockformer Vulcan 1600 Waterjet Cutting System can fabricate insulation fittings for about one-tenth of what it costs to buy them or one-tenth the time it takes to cut them by hand while also reducing your scrap waste by up to 75%.
