[Athen] Fusers or Tactile Graphic Machines

We had a similar situation. Our PIAF machine broke. We went to Enablmart.com to purchase our new one, only to find that they discontinued. Humanware still sells the PIAF brand though.

We ended up purchasing a ZYFuse swell-form graphic II machine from ZYChem. It is working just like the old PIAF with the Swell paper. I noticed about the same quality. The price of the two machines are similar.

Hope this helps.

We have been using a PIAF for the past 9 years to create the majority of our tactile graphics. I have seen much sharper swell paper graphics than we have been able to produce with our PIAF. Our machine is not doing as well as it used to and we are looking for a replacement for PIAF and was wondering if we should stick with the PIAF or go with another unit like the Swell-Form Graphics II.
Everyone that I know that does this uses the PIAF. I haven't found many helpful reviews online and in the archive of this list the only device that is ever talked about is the PIAF. Any feedback on either the newer PIAF machines or other fusers would be helpful thank you, Jeff _______________________________________________
