Giant hands at the trade fair stand as a special kind of touch

AUDI presented its new convertible model in a particularly eye-catching way at the internationally important IAA motor show in Frankfurt 2019: the Audi A5 40 TDI quattro is highlighted by two giant white hands. This staging makes the trade fair stand a special eye-catcher, to which we were able to make our contribution.

On behalf of the company Metron eging GmbH we made the two hands, which are over 5m tall, from GRP. First, the oversized hands were milled out of polystyrene on a five-axis CNC machining center using the CAD files supplied. In order to obtain a hard surface, the polystyrene models were covered with a 3 mm thick GRP layer using the hand laminating process by hand laminating. To keep the oversized hands as light as possible, all the polystyrene was then removed from the inside. To create a smooth and even surface, the entire surface must be filled, sanded, filled, sanded and primed. This was followed by a white matt paint finish. The good cooperation with the customer ensured problem-free installation on the customer’s scaffolding.
