Rampf Tooling create their Two Millionth Board

25 October 2011

During October 2011, Rampf produced their two millionth board since they commenced in 1982.

"Two million produced boards is a large quantity" comments Heinz Horbanski, Managing Director of Rampf Tooling. This number comprises styling, modeling as well as working boards that are used in various applications in the automotive, aerospace, wind energy, marine, foundry and machine industry. Rampf explain that with the market penetration of the first "PUR-board" for modeling in 1982, the turnover of the now RAKU-TOOL branded boards has increased steadily. In 1987 the first styling board was produced and in 1994 the first working board for jigs was developed and manufactured in Grafenberg. 1998 marked another milestone: Rampf Tooling developed the first modeling board made from recycling polyol. 

"Early on, Rampf has recognised future market developments towards sustainability and set the course for research and development in this important area", explains Heinz Horbanski. Today, the product portfolio of boards comprises a total of 37 different products including some boards made from recycling polyol.
