A Manufacturing system for automated production of polystyrene molds
Date of Original Version
A compact automated system cuts complicated contours on prefabricated polystyrene blocks which are used as molds to cast Cerrobend, which is used as a shield in radiation therapy. The authors describe the development of the prototype, including details for machine configuration, motion planning and cutting experiments.
