We at Wenzel agree with Mr. Jobs, I guess.
In our other two blog postings this month we discuss the need for a clay model as part of the vehicle design process (here) and some of the equipment needed to bring the development of these clay models to completion (here).
We accept that maybe not as many full-size clay models of vehicles are made today, per project, as less ‘stylish’ prototypes can be eliminated from consideration in the digital world. However, the public demands new models and facelifts more often, so there are more projects than in the past. We still see a very high demand for clay model production. Assuming we are right about the continued need to build full-size models before final management sign off of new designs and facelifts, then we are also right to continue to develop our solutions for modelers and when in front of them, convince that the Wenzel ideology will make the most impact in their process in terms of start to finish speed and in terms of the quality of the finished model.
So what is different about the Wenzel solution?
There are two different approaches to clay milling and the iterative process of modifying a clay model.
Wenzel Design Studio Solutions follow the second path. There are some competitors in this area too, but the key difference for the Wenzel solution is that we provide everything - the CMM Mill machines, different milling heads, cubes, measuring heads, laser scanners, scribing tools, controllers mounted on the arms, wireless joysticks, simple touch panel interfaces and sophisticated software to cover all tasks in the styling studio.
All of this from Wenzel and supported by Wenzel.
Another Wenzel differentiator is our flexibility. So if you need a plate 200” or 2,000” long, you can have it. If you want one arm per side or 10 arms per side, you can have it.
We look forward to showing you how our design solutions really work. In the meantime, take a look at the beautiful design of our new generation of CMM based milling machines.
We like the look and feel and the way they work. We hope Steve would have liked them too.
