Prototype and Models
Pinfold Patterns have the technology and traditional skills to produce highly realistic and detailed engineering models. By combining our understanding of customer needs with CNC machinery, traditional model making skills and vast engineering expertise we can supply the best model to suit both the purpose and your budget.
Materials such as composite tooling boards, low density foams, MDF, clear vacuum cast materials, hardwood and aluminium billet combined with a varied selection of paint finishes can all be used to produce the required result
Customers can quite often ask for prototype models, which can be quickly and easily produced. Giving you a product which replicates the final part for prototyping and development projects. Model making and rapid prototyping are the ideal methods to evaluate 3D CAD data before commencing tooling production. Models can be made from supplied Cad data and we can also use traditional model making as an alternative where no Cad data is present.
Models can be Master Models, Scale Models, Polystyrene Models and patterns, Ureol Tooling Board Models or layup models.
We can machine one-off or small batches of components. We have a fast turnaround and can produce simple 2D profiles through to full 3D CNC machining.
