ScanToProduction is an example of a continuous production process, which is able to analytically detect and acquire the peculiarity of a material (i.e. the wood grain) and adapt the fabrication methods or the intervention procedures, based on the physical properties and the heterogeneous nature of the material itself.
The material features are scanned, image-processed and translated into a seven-axis industrial
robot motion paths, all done in one shot process by an algorithm. The robot performs the work following the inputs generated by the program.

By grafting polyester resin, we obtain a hybrid.

The finished element is the result of a standardized production process which generetad a unique product following the natural inputs of the source material.
