During the enquiry stage our development department closely coordinates and consults with external pattern makers. The objective is to ensure that the planning of the dies for all stages of the product cycle (prototypes, preseries, series) is closely matched to customers' needs. We are able to offer the rapid prototyping process with cooperation partners and based on this, to generate a design of the series dies for our production department.

Diverse pattern materials are used for patterns and core boxes, starting with wood to plastic through to aluminium (coated and uncoated) and highly wear-resistant steel, depending on the complexity and required number of second casts. We do not use blanket solutions for our planning, but instead produce a meaningful strategy for each product, coordinated closely with all departments involved and taking into account the customer specifications.
