Polystyrene CNC milling machines
Our large scale 5-Axis Polystyrene CNC milling machines, meaning we can handle any size project.
Working with polystyrene or polyurethane gives us incredible flexibility in both form and scale.
We’ve worked on everything from polystyrene racing cars to polystyrene aeroplanes, polystyrene furniture to polystyrene sculptures, mascots for promotions to TV and polystyrene film props.
The polystyrene/polyurethane foam models can be used as is, painted for display items or coated with resin and fibreglass to be used ans moulding bucks or prototypes. Finished pieces can also be used for casting bronze or other metals into sculptures or other types of art.
We compact the waste polystyrene and foam dust, the polystyrene cut-offs are all recycled into more pieces of work or used in other industries.
"from a block of raw polystyrene or polyurethane foam to your exact replica milled using our large scale 5-axis CNC milling machines."
We now manufacture exact replicas of, for example, polystyrene cartoon characters, scaled up or down versions of products for special promotions, polystyrene animals, polystyrene sculptures for marketing purpose, film and television props.
We also produce polystyrene blow mouldings for point of display items for promotions and advertising campaigns, projection advertising, cnc models, styrofoam figures, styrofoam models, polystyrene models and exhibition props.

As we say, the only real limitation is your imagination
5-Axis CNC FAQs
The term '5-axis' refers to the number of directions in which the cutting tool can move. Meaning on a 5-axis machine, the cutting tool can move across the X,Y and Z linear axes as well as having the ability to rotate on the A and B axes; giving it the ability to approach the workpiece from any direction.
3 axis CNC is a simple process that uses conventional machining tool like a milling machine, allowing it to work on 3 axes (X,Y and Z), meaning that it can only move in three directions on a flat surface. Whereas 5-Axis CNC has the ability to approach the workpiece from nearly any direction.
A 5-axis CNC Machine works by using three normal axes (X,Y & Z), which and two extra axes referred to as the A,B and C axes. The A axis utilises a tilting mechanism along the X axis, while the C axis refers typically to the base; rotating 360° on the Z axis.
CNC milling, also known as computer numerical control milling, is the machining process that employs computerized controls as well as rotating multipoint cutting tools in order to remove material from the workpiece and produce custom-designed part or product.
The CNC Milling process is suitable for a wide range of materials including metal, plastic, wood and glass. Allowing you to produce a wide variety of custom designed products.
