is dedicated to

We chose to dedicate our startup to Adi, as we believe that in this war, women are the real heroes. We believe that the bravery of our women should be remembered and cherished. But it is not only for how Adi was killed but more than this, for how she led her life and the values she believed in.

Adi Vital-Kaploun





Kibbutz Holit

Circumstances of death:

After saving her children, husband and father, Adi was murdered in Kibbutz Holit.

Adi Vital-Kaploun, was a devoted mother of two young children, with a successful career in cybersecurity when she was murdered at her home by Hamas terrorists on Kibbutz Holit on Oct. 7.

Adi brought love, laughter, and a sense of purpose to her parents and siblings, the one always leading the way in a very close family. Her children are miraculously home safe, but she is not. She was murdered by terrorists in her home, just for being Jewish.

Adi had so many talents. She expressed herself through her dance, playing saxophone, and was an amazing basketball player. Adi was driven from a young age on a path to success in everything she set her mind to, having recently completed her master’s after completing a degree in chemical engineering.

When attacked by the terrorists at her home, Adi and the boys crouched inside, taking shelter as best they could in a closet. At 12:30, about six hours after the attack began, she texted her husband to warn him to stay away. She told him not to come out, and join her. By doing so, she saved his life. How she managed to persuade the gunmen to spare her sons isn’t clear. After having killed Adi' the children were brought to their neighbor who was then kidnapped with the kids to Gaza, but managed to get back.

A friend described Adi as an amazing woman, an amazing mother, and the kindest person he knew. Adi and her husband had chosen kibbutz life – planting trees and growing mangoes in the desert – because she deliberately chose the uncomfortable. She did what was right, not what was comfortable.

Polyfos 3D

Polyfos envisions distributed, and sustainable mass manufacturing being done at local micro-factories, digitalizing production, transportation, and inventory. Our vision is to convert traditional manufacturing into Additive Manufacturing (AM), through the development of industrial-grade AM materials and workflows to eliminate manual post-processing.

Global markets face climate change, wars, and pandemic challenges. Traditional offshore mass manufacturing is unsustainable, expensive and creates supply chain congestion. AM enables distributed production, at local, or near-shore micro-factories. Vat Photo Polymerization AM (VPP) is one of the most common methods for the production of plastic parts using AM. In the VPP technology, the resin is solidified by light projection. It provides all the necessary benefits: speed, scale, and variable mechanical properties. VPP has been around for over 40 years but hasn’t yet become a mainstream manufacturing method. A main VPP disadvantage is unavoidable manual support structures removal that results in labor dependent production process. This, in addition to a worldwide labor shortage, especially in developed countries, prohibits the economic feasibility of mass production using VPP.

Polyfos automates the supports' removal, enabling wide AM adoption for mainstream mass manufacturing.
Polyfos enables two materials printing: durable material for the parts, and a water-absorbing material for washable supports. Hence, Polyfos makes AM a viable mass production method.
