Curved Panels & Assemblies No tooling No waste UNIQUE PANELS FROM ONE RECONFIGURABLE MOULD We make use of a reconfigurable mould which is based on pin-bed technology. The mould is equipped with a membrane that conforms to the curved shape required. This means we can manufacture unique panels off of a single mould. Quick turnaround times and lower costs are achieved compared to conventional manufacture.
