We Are DWS

DWS, Digital Wax Systems, was founded in Italy, in Vicenza, in 2007.

We already had a long experience in the prototyping sector. We develop hi-tech solutions for prototyping and high-speed production applied to reduce development times for new industrial products (time to market), systems that have become a strategic resource and must-have elements for corporate competitiveness.

Applications

Due to their reduced moving parts and unique user-friendliness, DigitalWax machines are characterised by high reliability and extra-low maintenance. A great flexibility is made possible by the quick material change, the absence of pre-heating and calibration.
