As a result of improvements in data storage capabilities in recent years, digital scanning, reproduction, and forming has also become practicable for complex artistic requirements. These technologies have been followed and employed since the beginnings of the Kunstgiesserei.
When casting large-format sculptures, complex automated processes can accomplish a large part of model building. To enlarge smaller models true to scale, we use a simultaneous 5-axis machining program. The Kunstgiesserei has its own high-speed milling center for sculptures and an ABB milling robot. In close cooperation with highly specialized partners—such as irpd St.Gallen, Metris in Au/St.Gallen or robotmech in Voralberg—we use the most modern technologies in the fields of optical scanning, rapid prototyping and stereo-lithography.
