PATTERN MAKING, FOUNDRY TOOLING
As well as tool making we offer a full patternshop facility.With a vast array of experience from differing areas, we can supply patterns and castings for varying processes We can create fully machined patterns or hand crafted patterns if required
If you don’t have a drawing we can recreate an existing component using cad or state of the art laser scanning or by measuring and hand crafting
We use a wide range of materials including wood, resin, composite boards and metal (aluminium, Steel, Cast Iron Etc)
We produce pattern plates for foundries or patterns for foam tools and vacuum forming tools We can also create poly patterns to suit your specific requirements
No matter what route you require for your tooling we have the ability to work with you and produce the tooling you require
The majority of patterns are produced on our C.N.C machines from customer supplied 3D data or 2D data converted by ourselves, ensuring dimensional accuracy and a fine and consistent finish.
Only skilled pattern makers are employed in all operations of manufacture from computer programming, machine setting to finishing and applying foundry method to the completed job.
Renovation of traditional patterns can also be undertaken by use of the latest materials either by hand or a combination of hand and machine. Core boxes for use on core blowing machines are constructed from a high density material to prevent premature wear and can be vented to the foundry's specification.
