Robert Hofmann GmbH Rapid Prototyping: Where visions become reality

With rapid prototyping, not only does your vision become reality, but it also accelerates your innovative power.

In the crucial development phase, we use our advanced rapid prototyping approach to identify potential for improvement and insights at an early stage. These findings are not only crucial for the quality of the prototypes, but also form the foundation for later series production.

We understand that every project is unique.

We offer tailor-made solutions that are tailored precisely to your individual requirements. No matter how complex your ideas are – we adapt and make the impossible possible.

Trust in our expertise to implement your ideas efficiently, precisely and promptly. Our employees are not only experts in their field, but also partners who use their skills to make your visions come true in all aspects - be it in terms of functionality or attractive design.

For us, rapid prototyping goes beyond the traditional framework.

We don’t just manufacture individual components.

Our offer also extends to the construction of aluminum tools through our special speed system tooling concept. This makes it possible to produce prototypes using injection molding in the original material – and with the shortest lead times. In addition, the production and assembly of entire assemblies are one of our strengths, which our customers particularly value.

Our service does not end with the delivery of the prototypes.

We offer a comprehensive after-sales service to ensure that you are completely satisfied with the products delivered. Our dedicated team is available to answer any questions you may have, provide support and ensure your needs are met post-purchase.

The Airbus 380 First Class Mock-Up - realized by the outstanding expertise of Robert Hofmann GmbH.

A proud 98% of the parts for this visionary project were manufactured by us. But that's just the beginning. 
In just 12 months, from design to delivery, we set standards and pushed boundaries.

Thanks to innovative 3D printing technology using the SLS process, we were able to produce parts directly for use, 
while STL parts were perfected for the silicon and vacuum casting PU process. The result is a 
combination of precision and versatility that leaves our competitors far behind.
Our mock-up now shines in the Airbus customer center in Toulouse, France. Proof that 
that our work not only makes dreams come true, but also shapes the future of the aviation industry.

High-end mock-up of the Business Class seats for the Airbus 380

In a period of only 12 months, we realized a challenging project together with our renowned customer Airbus in Toulouse, France. Our mission was to design 28 individual flight seats, eight of which were to be fully functional, including pneumatic seat cushions.

What makes this project particularly impressive is the fact that we produced around 30 individual parts for each seat using 3D printing. This innovative approach allowed us to work precisely and efficiently while meeting the highest quality standards.
Join us on this exciting journey and discover how we are pushing the boundaries of what is possible in the aerospace sector through rapid prototyping and advanced technologies.
