MetroCirc™, which can be cut out by laser cutting, bent in three dimensions and held that shape, enables complex 2D and 3D shape designs.
The following video introduces the bending and shape maintainability out of the characteristics of MetroCircTM.
In the MetroCircTM process, a laser cutter is used to cut out each individual product. Therefore, we can easily handle requests for various complex 2D shapes.
Because no molds are used, we can respond to design changes in a short delivery time and at a low cost.
Support for complex 2D shapes
Bending can be applied to 3D shapes according to customer needs thanks to the flexible, high-strength characteristics of the MetroCircTM material.
MetroCircTM that has not been bent is perfectly flat, but the necessary regions can be bent, as origami paper is folded, according to customer requests.
It was difficult for the previous FPCs to maintain their shape due to spring back. However, MetroCircTM characterized by shape maintainability can help customers easily assemble products and reduce man-hours.
