Moulding and Tool making services serve as a basic element of Thermoforming and CNC Post Processing. Tooling made at GEISS AG can support you in a variety of ways.
Building on our years of know-how in model and tool making. Take advantage of: ‘Everything from a single source’.
Tools and trimming jigs, of varying sizes and formats, are produced on modern 5 axis milling machines. These are then tested in-house on request, allowing for production to start immediately after delivery.
Tool making at GEISS AG began when the company was founded in 1948 and draws on more than 70 years of model and tool making experience.
From today’s point of the view the early days may have been for more simple thermoforming tools, i.e. inserts for cutlery trays which were created by hand, todays deep draw tool has few limits in terms of complexity.
In-house at Geiss such Tools are designed, using leading 3D CAD systems and produced on state of the art 5 axis milling machines.
The use of pore free aluminium enables even the highest surface finish requirements to be achieved.
For extremely large tools we use aluminium castings with a defined wall thickness.
Through our manufacturing capabilities there are almost no size limits.
- Refrigerator Doors, Liners and Trays
- Sanitaryware (i.e. Bath Tubs, Shower Trays)
- Roof Boxes
- Technical Parts (Pallets, Airducts, Automotive Interior Panels, other Panels
- … and many more
Following the thermoforming process each part needs to be finished into its final form. Most often this is completed by trimming.
Again, our tool making lends itself to offer you a wide range of support.
Trimming fixtures made from aluminium or Ureol, as well as complex weld constructions with a wide variety of clamping systems, can be the solution to your problem.
Since we have a wealth of experience in deep draw forming and know the associated difficulties, we can identify and minimise problems in advance.
The fact that GEISS supply from a single source is certainly of benefit.
Parts formed on Geiss deep draw machines can also be finished on Geiss Trimming Machines.
Parts in post processing require an adequate trimming program.
We can also offer sound support in this area.
Trimming programs for GEISS Trimming Machines are created by us in collaboration with Tebis, using the ‘Virtual Machine’ option so they are supplied completely crash tested.
We also offer NC programs for laser trimming and cold knife cutting (6 axis program).
It often appears that when creating a deep draw tool, post processing should also be considered.
A clever design can detect and avoid a collision with following operations on the trimming machine.
This saves time and money.
It highlights the advantage of creating everything under one roof!
