The Original Radiotherapy Shielding Block Mold Cutter


Renowned as the worldwide industry standard, more Styro•formers are in use than all other shielding block mold cutters combined.  Styro•former® offers accurate, easy and fast cutting with minimal training.  A hand-held tracing stylus allows quick radiograph outlining to provide a smooth and efficient block cutting procedure.

Our Styro•former® Power Lift LT features panel mounted drive controls for both source and block arm distances.  A quick change wire system uses unique thumb screws and a table mounted measuring template for quick, easy wire changes.  Radiotherapy teams worldwide have come to depend on Huestis Medical for quality and cost effective radiotherapy products.  The Styro•former® is FDA registered and CE certified.
