Complex parts require ultimate precision and our machining tools can deliver accuracy and efficiency even with difficult angles. We use 3-axis, 4-axis and 5-axis machines which results in minimum handling and provide repeatable accuracy.
For over a decade, the Rapid Manufacturing Center has been providing rapid prototyping solutions as well as rapid manufacturing for small series.
For designers and engineers, a rapid manufacturing facility is beneficial in reducing lead times and is a cost-effective process where functionality and aesthetics of a product can be verified early in the product development process. We work closely with our clients from start of the design concept to the final small series production to provide support and innovative solutions throughout.
DESIGN & ENGINEERING
Structural & Rheological Analysis
GRANDESIGN was started in VANGEST more than 20 years ago. An award-winning product design company with knowledge of engineering combined with a keen eye for aesthetics, Grandesign offers solutions and technologies that will make your idea into a functional product for the real world. From trend research to design to engineering to prototyping, Grandesign works in collaboration with its clients from start to finish.
Our engineering department in DISTRIM is dedicated to providing specialized services (CAD) to the automotive and aerospace industries.
STRUCTURAL & RHEOLOGICAL ANALYSIS
CADFLOW provides advanced structural and rheological analysis (Moldflow) to our customers to optimize part and system performance and process parameters for the best quality part. With conducting these analyses we can predict the optimum temperature, stress, and pressure to have a clear picture of the composition and properties of plastic materials.
Part of VANGEST’s full service offering, EHTP provides production of high precision components specializing in thermoplastic injection.
An autonomous area was created, responsible for developing a semi-automated application for mould design. Today, this is an essential area for the group’s R&D strategy, establishing partnerships with numerous entities of the National Scientific and Technological System.
An ambitious process developed over the years based on the proven quality of the 3D solution, training of future users and on quality of post-sales support. This enables VANGEST’s Information Technology companies to distribute 3D Engineering Software Solutions (CAX – Design, Production or Analysis) and PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) solutions to various industries in Portugal.
