Vention, the first digital manufacturing platform dedicated to machine design and Groupe PolyAlto, the largest distributor and fabricator of plastic solutions in Eastern Canada, are announcing a partnership for the digital manufacturing of custom plastic panels.

Users of the Vention cloud-based machine design platform will be able to design and order cut-to-size plastic panels for delivery within 48 hours of order confirmation. Recent development of the Vention cloud-based MachineBuilder allows for automatic creation of a “custom plastic panel” based on surrounding geometries.

Digital integration between Vention and Groupe PolyAlto ensures that panels are priced in real time and confirmed orders are routed directly to the proper manufacturing equipment at Groupe PolyAlto. The digital workflow removes all of the traditional steps of 3D design, manual quoting, CAD file exchange and order processing.

Benefits for Vention and Groupe PolyAlto’s customers include:

  • Automatic 3D design of plastic panels based on surrounding geometries
  • Real-time pricing of cut-to-size plastic panels directly from Vention’s cloud-based MachineBuilder
  • Initial selection of over nine plastic materials, including HDPE, Polycarbonate, Acrylic and PhenolicC
  • Manufacturing of custom plastic panels in 48 hours
  • Consolidated shipment, including custom panels as well as all other components of Vention’s equipment

“The digital integration with Groupe PolyAlto represents a first step in making Vention’s MachineBuilder a highspeed design and purchasing platform for modular as well as custom industrial equipment,” says Etienne Lacroix, founder and CEO at Vention.

“It is with great enthusiasm that Groupe PolyAlto offers its expertise and products to all of Vention’s customers. Our wide array of technical plastic materials adds safety, protection, aesthetic properties and durability to all Vention-designed equipment,” adds Mathieu Goulet, Director of Manufacturing at Groupe PolyAlto.

Vention and Groupe PolyAlto currently support nine different plastic materials through this digitally integrated workflow. Partners expect to expand the portfolio of plastic panels in the near future.
