Tool making at GEISS AG began when the company was founded in 1948 and draws on more than 70 years of model and tool making experience. By today’s standards, the early thermoforming tools would be seen as simple; inserts for cutlery trays which were created by hand, whereas todays deep draw tool has few limits in terms of complexity. At Geiss AG, such tools are designed, using leading 3D CAD systems and produced on state of the art 5 axis milling machines. The use of pore free aluminium enables even the highest surface finish requirements to be achieved. For extremely large tools we use aluminium castings with a defined wall thickness and with Geiss’ manufacturing capabilities, there are almost no size limits.
