Development and design
Tools are designed on the Autodesk Mechanical Desktop and Autodesk Inventor CAD systems and fabricated by our competent toolmakers, all of whom are highly specialised in the requirements of the respective tool.
We are able to process a number of file and export formats used by common 2D and 3D CAD systems, such as Catia and ProE, including
IGES, SAT v8.0, STEP, DWG, DXF, IPT, IDW, IAM, VDAFS, CATIA V4 and PARASLID v12.0.
As part of this process, we optimise component geometries using technical requirements profiles (media resistance of the material, load behaviour, etc.), taking into account production needs such as demoulding capabilities.
The designs that we then develop for rubber moulded parts and rubber/plastic and rubber/metal composites must be suitable for rubber-compatible production and be of reproducible quality.
