Foamco have been a major flexible foam manufacturer and supplier of converted foam for more than 20 years with locations throughout Australia and production facilities in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.The new state of the art, fully computer controlled Varimax Omega foam plant is built to the highest and latest specification and includes more than thirty separate, high pressure chemical metering units to enable the production of a wide range of polyether foams including standard ethers, HR (High Resilience) foams, high hardness foams, Supersoft foams, FR (Fire Retardant) foams and VE (Visco Elastic) foams all on the same foaming machine. The Varimax plant is also equipped with Cannon’s CarDioTM liquid carbon dioxide technology for the production of low density foams without the use of ABA’s and CFC’s using liquid CO₂ as the blowing agent. With the latest generation of CarDioTM equipment Foamco has the capability to produce CO₂ low density foams with the maximum range of properties and raw materials including fillers, high viscosity Polyols, a wide range of additives and pigment colours.   


Mass flowmeters are fitted on all of the chemical metering lines which are linked in with the Omega control and monitoring system to give precise ‘closed loop’ controls with optimum chemical metering accuracy to maximise efficiency and raw material usage.
Cannon Viking’s integrated VCO Block Cut Off machine was also supplied with the Varimax plant to Foamco.  The latest generation of VCO Block Cut Off machinery has been fully upgraded to make it ideal for cutting wet and soft block foams like Visco elastic and Supersofts and is fully integrated with the Varimax foaming line. 
Cannon Viking has more than 700 customers throughout the world using our range of foam block production equipment, with more than 50 years history and experience in this industry.
