In our plastics workshop we produce display models and prototypes. Preliminary models are often made of polystyrene, final models usually of polyurethane foam.

Thermoplastics such as polystyrene, PET, or acrylic glass sheets can be formed with linear bending appliances or our thermoforming machine. Elastomers and thermosets are either cast or laminated. Our workshop is a universal workroom equipped with conventional, stationary machines for sawing, drilling, turning, turning, milling and grinding. We also have a wide range of hand-held machines and small parts used in work processes.
