A hot wire machine can be used to cut XPS underfloor heating panels. A hot wire machine uses a heated wire to cut through the XPS foam, creating a precise and clean cut.
The hot wire XPS machine works by passing an electric current through a wire that is stretched taut between two posts. As the wire heats up, it melts through the XPS foam, creating a clean and accurate cut. The machine typically has a cutting table where the XPS panels can be placed and secured for cutting.
Using a hot wire machine to cut XPS underfloor heating panels can provide a precise and efficient way to create the necessary grooves or channels for installing the heating elements. It is important to note that safety precautions should be taken when using a hot wire machine, as the wire can become very hot and may pose a fire hazard if not handled properly. Protective gear, such as gloves and safety glasses, should be worn when operating the machine.
