Making design experienceable,
create emotions

Schäfer has been known for the realization of complex models and gauges for over 100 years.  The very high vertical range of manufacture and the modern machinery enable high-precision products in the shortest possible time. The 200 employees at four locations are characterized by flexibility, know-how and commitment. SCHÄFER is equipped with sophisticated CAD/CAM and measuring techniques, has a high-tech milling machine park and rapid prototyping, 3D printing in metal and plastic as well as its own paint department. With its help, functional and test cubes, data control and leathering models are manufactured. The production of test gauges for almost all components is handled by the SCHÄFER site in Mühlhausen/Thuringia. The subsidiary DMS in Munich is responsible for conception, design, CAS and modeling. Development, visualization and realization are carried out here in close cooperation with the customers. New since 2021 is the brand Manufaktur MOS. Individual designs and unique manufacturing competence result in emotional products. With the new brand, Schäfer now also offers its expertise in the consumer market sector in addition to the automotive and aviation industries.
