At 1zu1 we use mechanical manufacturing for prototype production in original materials, milled master models, finishing of vacuum-cast plastic and metal models and for our Rapid Tooling business unit.

In conjunction with the latest generation of robot systems, our turning/milling machines and state-of-the-art 5-axis machining centers increase our capacities and ensure smooth automation.

Metal parts can be produced and processed around the clock, seven days a week. 1zu1 is equipped to produce both series and individual parts.

Prototypes in original materials

With our turning, milling and lathe-milling machines we can produce complex models and components in original materials (e.g., PA6 GF 30, Grivory, etc.) within the usual RP time frames, which range from a few days to several weeks.

With these systems we can also manufacture components that would not be adequate for functional tests if made using other processes. Transparent parts made of PC and PMMA (e.g., for lenses) can also be manufactured and polished. 

Finishing of cast-metal and vacuum-cast parts

To a large extent, these technologies are also used to mechanically finish plastic and metal castings. The previously calculated oversizes are equalized and processed in accordance with the data and drawings.

Interfaces for turning, milling and lathe-milling: PARASOLID, IGES, DXF, and STEP.

We oversee all phases of your project – from design to finished product. Many years of experience, short communication paths, a flexible approach as well as sound technical knowledge ensure optimum results for mechanical production of your workpieces or assemblies.
