PolyShaper: an idea that has become a business reality

GIPAT srl was founded in 2015 by Flavio and Carmine who decided to develop a three-dimensional polystyrene cutting machine.

They create a first prototype that, despite its correct functioning, does not have the desired success. They stubbornly decide to get back into the game and design another machine, thanks also to the feedback received, which allows cutting the polystyrene in 2D.

Thus was born the p400 which is the first hot wire desk machine to cut polystyrene and with an affordable price never before seen on the market.

Thanks also to the successful campaigns carried out on Kickstarter, the PolyShaper project begins to take shape and GIPAT srl begins to have a corporate structure.

After the advent of Oranje and Azul, the birth of ecommerce and various commercial agreements, GIPAT srl needs more and more internal and external collaborators, up to the present day when we are proud to present our complete staff:
