Moulding ideas: Prototyping and tool making

Every VAUTH moulding is unique. Each component is volume-manufactured solely on the basis of individual customer specifications. Meticulous care is taken in performing the planning, design and preparatory work involved.

Sample moulds are measured manually, edge roundings determined, digitalised and prepared for designing the model moulds using modern CAD software. First, a CNC cutting machine is used to create the rough shapes from VAUTH foam, edge roundings and fine details are modelled by hand. This makes it easier to optimise moulds later and enhances the sensitivity with which this is done.

The tool is produced from the basic shape in conjunction with the CAD data. Tools are stored, serviced and optimised as necessary in the company’s own metalworking shop.
