Answers to your questions

Development

Are you able to produce prototypes?

Based on our many years of experience in prototype construction, we are happy to produce models from solid wood. In our development workshop we are able to realise your ideas very quickly by using our seat simulator. Ten qualified experts process samples, build prototypes and fixtures.

Why should we be involved in development at an early stage?

Experience has shown that the costs of the end product are significantly influenced, especially at the beginning of the development process. With our longstanding expertise, we can set the course for an optimised price-performance ratio.

Which file formats can you use?

Our designers are specialised in Rhino 6, AutoCAD 2020 and Creo 6.0. However, many of the common file formats can also be used.

Material

Which types of wood can you process?

The most popular type of wood at the moment is oak. American walnut is also in great demand. Furthermore, we produce solid wood mouldings from maple, beech and ash.

What applications are there for solid wood?

The many advantages of solid wood are best used in furniture construction. Solid wood is particularly suitable for chair frame construction, but also for beds and tables.

How much do the types of wood weigh per cubic metre?

The following weights refer to air-dried wood with 12-15% humidity: oak 770 kg/m³, beech 720 kg/m³, American walnut 580-800 kg/m³, maple 600-700 kg/m³ and ash 650-800 kg/m³.

Where does the raw wood come from?

Our purchasing regions are right on our doorstep in Romania. We obtain all European types of wood from there. American walnut, as the name suggests, comes from North America.

How long will the timber stocks actually last?

Beech, oak, maple and ash come from sustainable Romanian forestry. Sustainability means that the amount of wood that is harvested is limited to the quantity of wood that can grow back at the same time. The Romanian forests are certified according to the requirements of the FSC ("Forest Stewardship Council") seal of quality. In Romania, 42% of the forest area (2.8 million hectares) is already certified.
