3000 Automated Foam Shaper

Hotwire Direct: 3000 Automated Foam Shaper
3000 with Carved Arches, Caps and Bases

The 3000 Automated Foam Shaper cuts column caps and bases, standard arches, and it is truly a unique machine because of its abilities to also carve irregular curves. Planters, bowls and ‘S’-shaped curves can be made on this machine. The Automated Foam Shaper is a high output production machine. Architectural foam shaping in 3-D has never been easier, or more complete.

"It’s all custom now and it’s so quick it’s scary!"
