Perfect moulds for the aircraft industry
From CAD data to the complete tool
The aircraft industry has very special requirements. Above all, these include large parts with high precision surfaces. GALVANOFORM has successfully met these challenges in several major projects and proven: Our moulds lend wings to the aircraft industry.
Starting with our customer’s data for the parts, we manufacture tools, amongst others for the autoclaving process. GALVANOFORM employs the latest CAD programmes for the CAD construction of bath model and tool.
Construction is followed by the various production steps, ranging from the manufacture of a bath model (in general a cast tooling model) up to the final tool.
The nickel tools, with a thickness of 2.5 - 6 mm, are completed by a backing made according to the requirements of our customers. The nickel tools have a surface quality of Ra = 0.4 - 0.8.
After fitting the vacuum tubing and producing and positioning any required separate parts, the nickel tool is measured with measuring equipment. Tool tolerance is ± 0.2 - 0.3 mm for a tool surface of up to 18 m².
Prior to delivery of the layup tool an inspection report is made, as agreed beforehand with the customer.
