3D adaptive mould technology

The adaptive mould is a robotic technology that leverages lean manufacturing principles to produce curved panels.

It can be used to create uniquely shaped single-curved or double-curved panels. This is a far superior technology compared to traditional moulding techniques, and offer rapid production cycle times, reduced cost and manual labor and improves the working environment while waste is brought to a minimum.

The mould can be used to form non-repetitive panels, or it can be used to create moulding casts for semi-repetitive requirements.

Surface shape is created directly from the 3D design drawings from where the mould automatically takes the desired shape within minutes.
