Expandable Polystyrene (EPS) and Expanded Polypropylene (EPP) are used in a variety of applications by customers of Shape.

Managing Director, Peter McCool said, “sculptured automotive and aerospace seats are regularly machined directly from complex CAD geometry files, supplied by our customers, in a variety of materials depending on the final application of the seat. Our large multi-axis CNC machines make light work of these materials and the complex nature of the parts is easily addressed with our software and experienced team of programmers. These same skills also enable us to machine sculptures for artists, props for the film industry, various characters for shop window displays and engineering mock-ups.”

The large 5-axis CNC machines at Shape are frequently used to machine complex shapes in incredible detail from a whole range of foams.
