Foam processing

W.AG combines the processing methods of milling, water jet cutting, laser cutting, laser engraving and punching under one roof.

When milling, a hard foam blank is placed in the machine and recesses are automatically milled out by a milling head according to a defined program.

Milling inlays are very popular because they provide high level stability since they consist of only one piece of foam.

Milling multicoloured foam for monitoring purposes of packaged content, for example, is possible.


When water jetting, attention is paid to optimum material utilization, the automatic nesting function allows maximum utilization of the foam sheets in high volume runs. Quick adjustments and changes are possible directly at the water jet machine. Our employees monitor the water jet cutting process to guarantee the highest quality.

The individual layers of the water jet cuts are then dried and glued at individual glueing stations by our employees.


Laser cutting is a new processing technique in W.AG foam processing. A laser scans accross the foam, similar to the water jet method, according to a predetermined drawing – making it possible to produce individual foam layers.

Further processing into foam inlays is analgous to water jetting. However, laser cutting offers the advantage that a cut foam does not have to be dried. This allows faster production of the individual foam components.


As a decoration option for inlays W.AG offers high quality laser engraving.

Logos and product information can be displayed directly on the inlay for a professional presentation. So, among other things, your brand name will be communicated on the inlay, or labels with genuine added value to the customer.


Punching hard and soft foams is the simplest method to manufacture case inlays for cases.

W.AG uses the punching technique, in which case punch contours are punched out of foam boards with a punching knife, for example, to produce bubble foams for upper case shells.
