Computer Aided Design
At AKB, we have the facilities and qualified staff to generate both 2D & 3D Computer Aided Designs.
In the nature of our work, our clients send us requests for a specific mould they require. We work in conjunction with each other to develop a CAD drawing which suits the clients requirements. These would include;
Drawings or sketches of the required complete stone; the actual size & dimensions of the stone; along with any fitted or removable features.
After this stage, we as a company plan along with our production staff, to build a mould to suit the size, shape and required dimensions of the client.
On the right, we have a hydraulic culvert design. Opposite corners of the core collapse so that the stone can be removed more easily.
From planning > design > finished mould. This culvert was used for Manchester Metro
