Adaptive Moulds Intro

The Adaptive Mould technology is a robotic reconfigurable mould that enables serial manufacture of uniquely curved surfaces in concrete, composites and thermo plastics for architecture, marine, automotive and aerospace.

Distinctive capabilities and advantages:
  • Less than 5 minutes from 3D file to ready mould surface
  • Up to 10x10 meter mould surface
  • Down to ± 1 mm/m tolerance
  • Up to 10x10x1 meter 3D mould area
  • Cost of time and mould materials reduced >70%
  • Carbon footprint reduced by >200 kg/m²

Single or Double Curved

Our moulds are broadly categorized into two types – the single-curved machines or the S-Series Moulds, and – the double-curved machines or the D-Series moulds. As the name suggests, the S-Series Moulds are used for the production of panels with a single curve, whereas the D-Series moulds are used for the fabrication of panels which are curved at multiple points.

The Adaptive Moulds comes in various sizes and can be customized based on the customer’s requirements.
