    Foam Wing Cutting Service

    I need some recommendations for a CNC foam wing cutting service that will cut a core to my design. I use AutoCad. Thanks, Dan.

    I was looking at some RCM plans, a few I considered asked for foam core wings, If companies can do these I would certainly review some of the kits.

    RE: Foam Wing Cutting Service

    On the topic of foam, what type of foam do you use? I've seen others using afoam for cowl plugs etc using a foam which is sorta pale blue in colour. Anyone know whatits called? If there are any other Aussies out there who know the answer to my questions, can you also add places where you can buy it.

    Thanks in advance

    RE: Foam Wing Cutting Service

    Adverse, I’m not a foam expert but here’s the little I know. Polystyrene foam is the beaded type of foam that is use to make foam cups, coolers and our foam wing cores. You can pluck the beads out with your finger nail. It is usually white but could be any color. Polystyrene foam is the cellular type. It sands very easy and is the kind that is used for molds. Polyester resin that is used to make the cowls, etc. does not affect it. It is usually colored. Now with that being said, I hope I am not too wrong because lately I have seen a multitude of foam names and types available. Maybe someone out there can pitch in and give you the latest information. You can find them at your local plastics/foam shops in the telephone book. Here’s a thread where a good technique was very well described. Dan.
