CAD/CAM Software plays vital role in research and mould making
Italy - An Italian plastic mould maker uses a portfolio of Visi CAD/CAM software modules to ensure it stays at the forefront of product development and research, working on European and regional projects with universities, research centres and companies.
Onni-Stamp, based in Villafranca d’Asti in the Province of Asti, is a classic example of an Italian family business but characterised by intense research and development activity, which, according to founder Giorgio Goria, sets it apart from other mould manufacturers.
Set up in 1980, the company combines the experience of expert craftsmanship with state-of-the-art technologies. Onni-Stamp incorporates fully integrated project management into its core business of creating moulds for plastic materials. The owner’s son, Alessio Goria, says the company works alongside the client from the very first stages of the project through co-creation and co-design activities, with the goal of producing products that are easier to manufacture, more cost-effective and of higher quality. Once product design is complete, Onni-Stamp uses Visi to assist in finding the most appropriate technical or economic production solutions according to quality requirements, size of production batches and economic investment.
“We’ve worked with Visi’s Italian reseller, Vero Solutions, for many years. Their technical and commercial support goes beyond the use of the software, extending to a genuine collaboration in solving particular problems, ranging from managing product deformation to managing the coding of mould components at CAD level,” he says.
