About us

Mission

”Automobiles are more than just means of transportation. They are pure emotion. It´s about design. Lines, curves, volumes - the perfect implementation of an idea. Wenzel DesignTec® offers solutions which support designers and modellers to make their ideas reality. Solutions that are uncompromised in performance and easy in handling.“

Frank Wenzel, CEO Wenzel DesignTec® GmbH

Since more than 50 years we deliver solutions for the automotive industry - always striving for highest precision and relyability. In the early years our machines were mainly used for measuring and quality control. Since more than 30 years our column-type machines equipped with milling heads can be found in design studios. Here they are used as efficient mills for clay and hoardboard, but also for layouting, scribing and scanning.

Since 2016 Wenzel DesignTec® has focused wholeheartedly to design studio applications and broadend the portfolio accordingly: we deliver now solutions for all performance categories.

Precision, speed and relyability for your design process - these attributes describe the performance made by Wenzel DesignTec®. Our software and hardware also allow to digitize your manually modelled results and integrate them into your digital workflow. Form and function - design aspiration and efficiency as factors of success - automotive companies all around the globe appreciate these qualities.

What is clay modelling?

Modelling with clay (aka industrial plasticine) is a standard process for formfinding used by car producers all over the world. Nowadays those models are in a first step usually created with CAD software (e.g. our DesCAD software). Our machines RA Mill, DT Robot and DT Mill use this computer generated data to mill out those cars from clay or foam. Those physical models are used for evaluation and are manually perfectioned by clay modelers. Also during this step our machines and software are used: to measure characteristic points, draw lines on the surface (scribing) or to scan the manual modelling result and bring it back into the digital process.
