Styrofoam cutter

Styrofoam is difficult to work with knives. With our styrofoam cutter, you can precisely shape the material into the desired form. Both 2D and 3D models are possible. In this way, you can produce architectural city building models as well as concrete formwork and much more.

I would like to ... the Styroporcutter

The prerequisite for using the Styroporcutter is a valid Styroporcutter equipment licence as well as a valid SLUBcard and occupational health and safety instruction.

Users with an equipment licence can reserve the Styroporcutter independently. Reservations can be made at least one day before the start time and up to 14 calendar days in advance.

In the course of the system changeover, not all users with an equipment licence have been activated for independent booking. If you are affected, please log into the booking system with your user number and password and send us an e-mail. We will activate your account as soon as possible.
