• Exertis announces ‘world’s first’ desktop factory

        • Exertis has announced a distribution agreement with Mayku, manufacturers of a desktop vacuum former. The Mayku FormBox works with any vacuum cleaner and a wide selection of different materials, enabling moulds to be made in minutes with no software or digital model manipulation needed. Exertis will supply the product along with Mayku’s range of consumables with two types of sheets - Form and Cast.

          The Mayku FormBox comes with a starter kit, 30 sheets of material and a universal vacuum connector. It works by heating a sheet of plastic and laying it over a 3D form, then using the vacuum to suck out the air to create an air-tight seal. A timer can be set after the plastic has been inserted and the temperature set. The sheet cools and makes a mould of the shape in seconds. Moulds can be cast using a wide range of materials from cement to chocolate. 

          Jamie Brothwell, Exertis Print General Manager said, “we are delighted to be associated with an exciting new concept that brings a new dynamic to the market, providing a wide range of creative opportunities for home crafters, educational establishments and R&D centres. Mayku has launched a breakthrough product that provides independent makers with production powers they've simply never had before. It provides the perfect accompaniment to 3D printing and has huge potential in the education, consumer and B2B markets.”

          Alex Smilansky, Mayku CEO and co-founder added, “Exertis is a perfect partner for Mayku with its broad reach of channel outlets and established customers serving key verticals such as education and consumer. In addition, the Mayku Formbox has real synergy with their print division, specifically in 3D. We have a big opportunity to grow our market and can provide resellers and retailers with access to an already built community, which is creating and sharing incredible maker content, and a product library where end customers can go to find project ideas and things to make.”
