The development of your polyester product starts on the basis of a design sketch or 3D CAD file. Holthausen Composites can assist you in this with our creative and technical knowledge. The construction of CAD files in `Solid Works` is also among our possibilities.
In order to meet any of our customer`s possible further design wishes Holthausen Composites have several partners.
The following steps will be taken in order to come to an excellent final polyester product:
- Design sketch or 3D file
- Feasibility / defining our choice of material and production technics, for example polyester or epoxy composite
- CAD / CAM milling of the model / manually creating the model
- Build molds in polyester, epoxy or metal
- Possible proto process
- Production in the Netherlands or in one of Holthausen Composites` branches abroad
You desire polyester products, specially customized to your wishes, then you have come to the right place at Holthausen Composites B.V.
At Holthausen Composites customers can design and produce their own imagined polyester products or polyester product parts in a personal collaboration. Your imagined and desired products will be designed in a design sketch or 3D CAD file that allows the customer to have a three dimensional image of the polyester products that will eventually be manufactured. At this stage, modifications can, of course still be applied.
On the basis of this 3D model and the applications that the final product will be used for, as well as the qualities that the product should meet, Holthausen Composites will collaborate with the customer, deciding on what material the product should be manufactured from. These are often polyester products, but also epoxy ands polyurethane products are possible, in combination with strength reinforcing materials e.g.
optical fibre, carbon and / or aramid (kevlar) fibres in order to ensure that the final product will be as strong as it could possibly be.
After this has been determined, Holthausen Composites will start manually creating a prototype. This will enable the customer to actually see whether the final products will meet all the expectations. When the model perfectly meets what is required, then the mold in which the product will be cast, can be created. Subsequently, your product can be manufactured in the desired quantity and then put into operation or be integrated in your final product.
