reference or modifications.

• Easy input of patient/block information.

• Pre-set operational function keys.

• User may select any cut path to connect

multiple block outlines.

Quick Modifications

• Ability to “flip” image for fast AP/PA or L/R

lateral blocks, or change any parameter without re-digitizing.

Hot Wire Cutting

• Image can be moved to any position on the block to allow for the conservation of styrofoam use.

• Fast .45 in/sec (1 cm/sec) cut speed.

• Cutter is safely enclosed in cutting bay.

• Adjustable temperature for variations in

foam densities.

• Safety interlock for open door position.

• Custom defaults: S.F.D., S.A.D., S.T.D.

• Distance changes can be factored in after

digitizing or TPS import.

• Determines smallest block required for

shape or combination of shapes.

Versatile Configurations

cutting bay may be used with your own

digitizer, through treatment planning, or

supplied as a fully integrated system.


Extremely Accurate

Fully articulating and gimbaled cutting

mechanism is accurate ±1 mm at the

block tray level for precise, divergent cuts.
