Model and mold construction for the automotive and aviation industries
At SCHÄFER, experts in model construction implement design decisions developed together with the customer. This is done at seven modern specialist model construction studios in Osnabrück (Lower Saxony). Schäfer has sophisticated CAD/CAM and measuring technology, high-tech milling machinery, rapid prototyping, and its own painting department. With this equipment the company can manufacture function and verification cubes, and data control and leather trimming models. The SCHÄFER location in Mühlhausen, Thuringia, is responsible for manufacturing testing gauges for almost all of the components. The subsidiary DMS in Munich is responsible for concept development, design, CAS, and modeling. This is where development, visualization, and implementation take place, in close cooperation with customers. Experienced employees create vivid clay and solid models, experience models, and fascinating show cars. Customers include many renowned automotive and utility vehicle manufacturers as well as aviation and appliance manufacturers.
