Benefits of pressure forming in education
Empowering students with hands-on learning
Pressure forming is a valuable hands-on learning method in education that improves problem-solving skills, increases engagement, and fosters creativity and critical thinking. It allows students to explore an industrial process and create tangible parts and prototypes.
Ease-of-use and safe student operation
The Mayku Multiplier shines in educational settings due to its user-friendly design. Its guided operations direct students on each step, and built-in safety measures ensure a safe exploration space.
Rapid cycle times
Pressure forming is a quick process, making it perfect for educators on tight schedules. Students can easily modify their designs and see the results, keeping both lessons and their attention fresh. With projects completed in minutes, students stay motivated and interested. Rapid cycle times mean teachers can accomplish more within a class period, maximizing student learning opportunities.

Experiencing the full product development cycle: From prototyping to end-use parts
Pressure forming is a versatile manufacturing technology that allows for the production of everything from basic prototypes to high-quality end-use parts, with part quality similar to injection molding.
Students can rapidly refine their designs and assess their functionality in a shorter space of time than other fabrication technologies.
Making industry tech accessible in classrooms
Just like 3D printing, pressure forming has mostly been limited to large companies for many years, limiting widespread understanding and usage. Mayku has worked hard to change that. We’ve scaled down this industry-grade technology to fit on a workbench with the Mayku Multiplier, a compact yet powerful pressure forming machine.
Teamwork across disciplines: Boosting education through pressure forming
Today, it is essential for product development stages, such as ideation, research, and manufacturing, to work hand-in-hand. Pressure forming plays a crucial role in making this process seamless and enabling the integration of different disciplines.
Get started with pressure forming in education
Pressure forming is undeniably impactful, with its benefits already evident across industries. Educators who integrate pressure forming into their curriculum equip students with knowledge of a transformative technology that is shaping their world.
