A blog post about making curved seating.
"Making the moulds themselves was going to be a fairly complicated task, but luckily we came across some wonderful stuff called Curvomatic which was designed with just this in mind"

I’ve attached a couple of photo’s showing curved panels we made for some vanity units using the Curvomatic. I thought I’d send them before they are decorated as it shows the material better. It really is a great piece of kit and has quickly become essential in our workshop. I have passed your on details to other cabinet makers I know who are equally impressed.
Design and Manufacturing
We really love this exhibition and were so glad we attended again this year. It was great to meet and talk with so many people about Curvomatic.
We took at few photos of our stand with some of our latest developments. Take a look below!
"We met Ciff Petit, inventor of the Space Plug who was also exhibiting at W14.

Curvomatic is now being sold by our French dealership under the name of RAPID FORM.
They are the main French distributor for V-korr acrylic solid surface as well as retailers of solid surface tooling and machinery.

We had produced 6 pillars with 2.8 m height and a 1m diameter from thin layers of MDF and bendable multiplex with a thickness of 40 mm. We had covered with High Gloss HPL in the same stage with D3 adhesive. As you can see from the pictures the pieces has fit perfectly and the results was great. The most important thing was that the finish of HPL was perfect because the thin layer of adhesives. I cannot imagine how could be possible to do this job with normal MDF molds, because of the weight of the molds. Anyway, the Curvomatic in this dimension was pretty heavy, so we had built an electric lifting solution for better placing the second layer of Curvomatic. The production time was about 4 days with 2 people, from routing the material till the finish product.

Here are a couple of photos of the latest mould we have built. It�s a 588 rad with a 100mm flat section. The other couple are some 300 rad columns that we cut for a customer. I have been really impressed with the system. I wish had begun using it a couple of years ago when I first saw it , still better late than never !
Core 77 Review
Thanks to hipstomp / Rain Noe from Core 77 for the write up!
British company Curvomatic seeks to make bentwood creation easier with its titular product. A series of identical metal extrusions are fitting together into a sort of snakelike fence, in most cases taking the place of the topmost form. The idea behind the multi-pronged solution is to provide even pressure, simplify clamping—in some cases band clamps can be used rather than bar clamps—and save material, for applications where the Curvomatic can supplant the second, concave form."

12 different molds, 18 mm thickness, covered with HPL in the same pressing time. The production time was about 5 days with 2 persons, from routing till the finish products. Excellent result as well.
Reception Desk made from 18 mm curved MDF (7 layers of 2.5 mm). 2 elements, one of 1.5 m height, the other one of 2.5 m height. We had painted the MDF in High Gloss water based paint. Excellent results.
And 2 finish furniture made with Hanex Solid Surface.

"Good system!! Love it! Saves a lot of time! Once you have drilled the holes and assembled it, which takes some time!!! But once done it's done forever! From then on you simply make two curves out of plywood or mdf, job done for just a simple curve.
If you are doing an S shape like I have done then you need to make four curved formers to make two female sides.
What I used to do was make up a box frame work which takes longer, isn't as good, it's bigger and wastes money on 2x2 and lots of screws.
Curvomatic is quicker, saves on materials and also storage because you can keep two 18mm pieces of ply for later and a large curved box takes up more room.
