Rapid prototyping

Your ideas will be realised faster with Rapid Prototyping – because potential improvements can be identified as early as the development phase, providing security and reliability for the series production later.
As one of the cross-industry, leading Rapid Prototyping providers in the world, our highly-experienced team can draw on a wide range of cutting-edge technologies, from Metal- and Plastic 3D printing to PU vacuum casting.
We also are specialists in the construction of aluminium tools in the field of Rapid Prototyping, because our special speed system tooling concept offers you the option of making prototypes using injection moulding in the original working material – with the shortest possible lead times.
However, our range of services doesn’t simply end with the production of individual components. One of our outstanding strengths particularly appreciated by our customers is the manufacture and installation of entire assemblies
Regardless of your individual requirements, you can always be sure that Hofmann – Ihr Möglichmacher will give you the best solution for your Rapid Prototyping project.

The topic of 3D printing is on everyone’s lips – and rightly so too, because where traditional technologies reach their limits, the strengths of 3D printing come into their own, accelerating innovation processes. This is why we focus on continuous development in the areas of personnel, materials and technologies – and that makes us a pioneer in 3D printing and also one of the leading providers of production services.

We will realise your products, from prototypes to series production, with a whole host of advanced 3D printers. We also have different methods such as metal and plastic 3D printing available for you, not least because of our years of experience in the field of additive manufacturing. Our experts will support you with their extensive know-how, offering you everything from design and construction support to your finished product from a single source.
