Custom Molding Reproduction
San Francisco Victoriana's millwork plant is capable of manufacturing any custom molding you may require for your project. We can duplicate from a sample or drawing and run your custom order from 1/4" through 12" in width and from 6 feet through 30,000 plus feet. We will scan your drawings or samples into our computer design system to generate an exact template on our 3 axial computer controlled template maker. We can generate drawings for your approval and can store your designs for future use. Please contact us with your specifications for a quote.
The Custom Molding Reproduction Process
We work with your scale drawing or sample.
We require a sample at least 1" in size, stripped or painted.
We scan your sample or detail drawing into our computer CAD system. The design information is sent to a computer controlled 3 axis router which cuts an exact template for the profile-tooling grinder.
Blank tooling is cut, balanced and mounted in circular molder heads.
Complex wood moldings may require up to 6 cutterheads to duplicate.
The cutterheads are mounted in the profile-tooling grinder and manipulated against the profile template. This produces a perfectly balanced 2-knife cutterhead that exactly matches your sample or drawing.
Completed tooling, ground and sharpened, ready for the molder.
The necessary cutterheads are mounted in our molding machines. Your materials are selected, planed for uniformity and ripped to width. The molder heads are mounted and the machine is adjusted. A test run is completed to verify proper dimensions.
Finally the materials selected for your profile are run to complete your order.
