PolyShaper technology, ideated by Flavio Prattico (Mechanical Engineer) and Carmine Gianfagna (Electronical Engineer), has the aim to compensate the technology deficiency in polystyrene manufacturing. Semi-finished, as well as the finished products polystyrene, are manufactured through the molding by sintering. Since the cost of the mold is a high investment, these products are economically feasible only on big volumes. To respond to a need to customize unique pieces and small series, at present there are no technologies that meet these requirements. PolyShaper technology, uses a taut hot shaped wire,that is able, through the use of numerical control machines, to realize on polystyrene any shape, no matter its grade of complexity, maintaining unchanged the tactile properties of the material. In summary, PolyShaper represents for polystyrene what 3D printing represents for plastics.
P400 Cantilever has an innovative layout, designed to give you an accessible working experience. It offers the basic PolyShaper technology in the largest working area of its category. P400 Cantilever is thought as a desktop machine for makers and designer.More info
In order to allow to realize full 3D objects, we design the P200 Rolling machine. It controls numerically the revolution of the polystyrene object to garantee a good finishing surfaces. P200 Rolling is the machine most optimized in dimensions that we offer, giving the best compromise between the machine encumbrance and working capability.
P1400 Classic improve the classic 2D tense hot wire cutting process. This machine is thought for artisans and professionists. Its dimensions are designed to work on standard polystyrene panels, with the aim to simplify your production.More info
Standard PolyShaper machine with 3 axis. P# Custom is dimentions customizable on a wide range. This machine is thought for industries and companies that necessitate to work on large polystyrene blocks.
You think; we realize. We can shape any form of any dimensions and complexity. The only limit is your imagination.
Polyshaper is the missing link in 3D prototyping of large size models for areas such as restoration, architecture and signage where costs are unbeatable using an inexpensive material such as polystyrene.
It's so versatile and easy to programme! It was a life savior on my master's thesis project!
