Knaus Tabbert is one of the leading manufacturers of RVs in Germany and Europe and offers its customers a broad array of recreational vehicles (RVs), caravans, and caravanning utility vehicles (CUV). For the new, fully integrated ‘KNAUS L!VE I’ RV, Westiform produces the radiator grille and chrome trim panels for the front of the vehicle.
ABS with an electroplated finish is used for the technical plastic parts. The challenge in production is to provide perfectly fitting shapes and perfect surfaces. The technical plastic parts are installed in the customer’s direct field of vision and thus significantly contribute to the appearance of the ‘KNAUS L!VE I’ RV.
The technical components are produced by Westiform by means of vacuum moulding at its own production sites. Thanks to state-of-the-art machinery, including a deep-drawing machine, 5-axis CNC milling machines, various laser-processing centres, and its own oversized 3D printer, Westiform custom-produces a broad variety of materials, shapes, and finishes – even starting from small batch sizes.
From technical consulting to design, development, manufacturing, and logistics, Westiform supports you with full service as a general contractor.
