cutting machine


Explanation:
"cutter", cutting device" or "cutting instrument" seem all good, but certainly not "aggregate", though in Germany the term is used (Aggregat) to describe a high-powered automobile motor.

cutting station


Explanation:
aggregat = set, station
schneiden = to cut

It is about a fixed cutting device (the cutting tool itself is probably rotating unless it is a thermic cutting device).
The movable table carries the foam toward the cutting fixture which cuts it.
