Albrecht Baumer

Albrecht Baumer are the largest suppliers of machinery to the foam industry. Established in 1952, they have grown into a world leader, highly respected by the foam industry throughout the world.They export to almost every country where foam is converted.

Baumer OFS VT

The above machine is Baumer’s latest development – the OFS-H Twincut. This is the ultimate horizontal CNC contour cutting machine featuring both an endless blade for high speed cutting and an oscillating blade where extreme accuracy is required. The oscillating blade is ideal for cutting all types of challenging foams such as rebond, Basotect and latex. The endless blade is capable of cutting up to 60 m/minute – the fastest on the market. Changing between the blade types only takes a few minutes.

Recently the demand has grown for foam mattresses and pillows with holes for air circulation and Boers Techniek make an excellent range of machinery for this application. The advantage of Boers Techniek machines is that they not only drill the holes quickly and effectively, but also remove the drilled foam automatically. This means that you do not need to manually remove the drilled parts which is a slow and labour intensive process. Furthermore, they do not use air to remove the cores as this is a very expensive method. Please see their video on YouTube showing one of their machines in operation by typing “foam drilling Boers Techniek”. Apart from building a standard range of machinery, they also design equipment to meet customers’ specific requirements.
