Upholstery foam

Our company reupholsters dental chairs. We were wondering if anyone has tried to use a Laser to cut upholstery foam. We were wondering if the J-tech 24 watt would be able to cut a clean pattern through a 3 inch thick slab of upholstery foam. Thanks

Pretty sure the answer is “no way” - and the safety aspects will depend on the type of foam too. At the very least you’d want CO2 laser to do anything light colored or any workable thickness.

What about a hot knife or band saw?

Thanks for your warning. I was leaning towards the hot wire option but i had to eliminate the laser as a safe option.
