Explanation:
You don't really need to include the "ware".

Folie - sheet
a thin, generally plane product in which the thickness is small in proportion to length and width
[Wittfoht]

Platte (Kunststoff) - board, panel
[Wittfoht]
Ernst Deutsch-Englisch : Platte f (Schaumstoff) / slab form
Platte f (Kunststoff)
board n, sheet n
[Siemens]

Since you say you're dealing with a foam cutting machine, the Ernst term might be the best.
