From 3D drawing of hull supplied by customer, we shape all the foam panels to generate the perfect fit kit.

Modelize.

The core map is generated.

We split hulls into panels optimized to minimize core waste.

Features such as chamfers, cut-outs and inserts are marked out in drawings.

Panel shape and thickness analyzed and spring-back correction applied.

Software converts drawing to control program for adaptive mould.

Testimonial

''Shaped Foam Kit is definitely a great improvement in terms of core performance, weight saving as well as surface finish. The beSpline products are a game changer for the marine industry, and their advantages will be of interest in many more composites applications.”
