CUSTOM DESIGNS & PROTOTYPING
Model and pattern making form a key element of contract manufacturing, necessitating new and unique designs for every project at hand.
Up to a few years ago, such task was exclusively based on manual skilled craftsmanship. Traditional craftsmanship has now become increasingly difficult to source, and therefore the company started to invest in more modern machinery and state of the art technologies, also due to the fact that custom work and prototyping has become more complex and demanding.
We invested in 2 complimentary assets, Qualified Manpower and New Equipment, including employment of engineers, digital technicians, a brand new 5-Axis CNC machine capable of a working volume of 24 cubic meters at a time, and a modelling paste machine to create high finish modelling and plugs.
To further maximise use of such investment, the company has also opened its doors to third party professionals that would like to make use of such facilities.

Other custom projects
We love to work with people who push the boundaries of designs and take advantage of the versatility of the core material to create one off pieces. We are always interested in getting involved in such projects. The following gallery is a testament to our support to designers that have chosen our services to support their vision.
