/24-7PressRelease/ - June 12, 2008 - CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA - Businesses looking to create artistic and detailed architectural features now have a solution that goes beyond the capabilities of traditional hot wire cutting. Whether for creating precast concrete molds or architectural foam features, Streamline Automation's FROG3D foam carving system automates the production of intricate architectural pieces not possible with standalone hot wire foam cutters.
Hot wire foam cutting has become popular for architectural applications because of its ability to turn out consistent architectural features without time consuming manual processes. While standalone hot wire foam cutting equipment can produce basic architectural features and concrete molds, there are limitations to the kind of artistic products that can be created. Streamline Automation now offers a solution for moving beyond these limitations with their FROG3D foam carving system.
Combining hot wire cutting with 3D laser scanning, CNC routing and various finishing capabilities, including GFRC production capabilities, Streamline Automation's FROG3D foam cutting and carving system represents the next level of innovation in architectural foam and concrete mold production. While hot wire cutting is an integral component of this system, the addition of scanning and routing capabilities introduces a range of new creative possibilities. These capabilities allow for the incorporation of decorative patterns, intricate details and creative 3D designs into architectural features, whether using foam or concrete for the end product. Perfect replicas of existing pieces, including historical reproductions and restorations, are now possible. The FROG3D system can also be used to create product lines impossible with hot wire cutting, including decorative wall panels, concrete reliefs, fireplace mantels and concrete sculptures.
"Where standard hot wire cutting limits you to basic architectural features that don't stand out from the crowd, the FROG3D system lets you produce designs that have traditionally only been possible with meticulous hand carving," said Dwayne Lehman, President of Streamline Automation. "Thanks to the integration of various technologies into a solution that has been custom-made for architectural applications, our clients can take their architectural features from concept to creation with one system. Users can produce creative and decorative architectural features and molds without the labor of traditional hand carving processes, and without the creative limitations of standalone hot wire cutting equipment." The FROG3D system is available to businesses around the world looking to expand their creativity, productivity and markets.
