Blanking technology, originally used to make sponges, came with the drawback of increasing material deformation.
Although this defect was not fatal to the technology, it was evident that this problem could never be completely resolved.
Even more difficult was to maintain the dimensional consistency of pieces over time and guarantee tolerances of a few tenths.
In 2007, Vito Rimoldi SpA got in touch with other companies producing components for the furniture industry at a worldwide level. It quickly became clear that blanking was not the most suitable technology for the large production batches required by the market.
It was necessary to make use of a different technology.
