Styling Solutions

Styling Solutions

Wenzel produces a range of clay milling and styling studio equipment which make up a unique set of Styling Solutions for clay modelers. The clay milling machines are normally fitted to flush floor cast iron plates. These clay milling bases can be made any length to suit the needs of the studio and can be equipped with as many clay mills as needed. Fixed or 2 axis milling heads can be supplied as well as a 3D laser scanner to perform reverse engineering tasks on the clay model.

The software, DesCAD, which handles the milling, the milling programming, laser scanning and data handling, is produced by Wenzel. All required operations for the above can be handled by the modeler on the studio floor.

In addition to these Styling Solutions, Wenzel also supplies a range of milling cutters, scribing tools and other accessories for the studio.

The Styling Solutions portfolio sits alongside Wenzel’s wide range of equipment, which includes one of the largest ranges of CMM machines in the world, a 3d laser scanner, Shapetracer, a white light scanning head, Phoenix, an industrial CT Scanner range, exaCT, a full line of gear Inspection systems and a high-speed optical CMM range, CORE.
