First of all there is the master model: the base upon which the mould is built. Our masters are machined with computer controlled tools from high density resins, to have enough stiffness and temperature resistance to bear autoclave stresses. Every detail must be right from the design phase: the parts must be able to come out easily and the couplings between separate parts of a mould must be extremely precise, otherwise the coupling lines will be visible on the parts.

To get everything right we use surface modelers, CAD software especially conceived to work with complex surfaces. They allow virtual prototyping and they can be interfaced with the NC machining tools.

On the masters we build our carbon fiber autoclave moulds. From the outside they are similar to the common fiberglass moulds used by any boatyard, but they must be tough enough to tolerate the stresses o hundreds of high pressure cycles and they must not have micro bubbles of air below the surface, which could break them at high temperature.

Their surface finishing is mirror like, since we absolutely want to avoid sanding and painting on our parts.

Our moulds are built in prepreg carbon fiber. Very expensive but very precise and durable.
