2

Prototyping &

Small Series

The use of sophisticated production processes allows the production of prototypes with a high level of functionality for confirmation, validation and test of a product in the first stages of its development. Using these technologies, the production of small series is vital to the launch of products oriented towards small niche markets.

3

Project &

Moulds Production

With three units of thermoplastic mould production, VANGEST offers technological solutions for different types off parts: Small dimension technical moulds (ATT), medium moulds (3DTECH) and big moulds (MPTOOL). These unites combine unique project abilities and co-development adapted to its dimension and specificity.

4

Quality Control

Checking Fixtures work as a measuring support simulating the setting of the part in the automobile without interfering with its integrity when removed. Digital Measuring Systems resources in Metrology Laboratories are able to detect any deviations in the measuring of the parts confirming the required tolerances both dimensional and positional.

5

Tests, Validation and Injection

In the Try-Out Center it is possible to confirm the quality and performance of the injection moulds through in-house tests. This unit, specialized in thermoplastic injection, works continuously to as demanding as food, medical, electronics and automotive areas.
