Mikromat takes over prototype manufacturer Direkt Form

With the takeover of the prototype manufacturer Direkt Form, prototypes, series preparation and realization will be completely implemented at Mikromat in the future.

Since 2001, Direkt Form has developed a casting technology based on sand mold milling of medium and large casting and led in prototyping to worldwide unique position. The result is only castings that can be produced using this technology:

-Constructive design without restrictions
-Lower cast weight (no model removal)
-Lower machining costs (very accurate, allowance smaller than 1 mm is possible)
-lightweight
-Better material properties compared to full cast

This should result in the following advantages:

- Time advantage (obtaining the prototype while simultaneously developing the technology)
- Cost advantage (considering total costs, especially for small batches)
- Improvement of product acceptance through geometry and / or material optimization
