In the early 1900’s, British car manufacturers were at the forefront of motor vehicle development. The Vulcan Motor company, based in Southport, England, was one such innovator that produced cars from 1902 until the late 1920s. Today, early examples of Vulcan cars are extremely rare collectors’ items. NovaCast was approached by a specialist engineering company … Read more
Patternmaking and toolmaking lie at the heart of the foundry process. Although technology has changed over the years with the introduction of 3D printing, the need for exceptionally high quality hasn’t. Whether we are sourcing a 3D printed pattern for rapid prototyping or a CNC machined die for high quality investment-cast production runs, the quality of the tooling is reflected in the quality of the finished casting, so we never compromise.
Our design engineering team and foundry engineers work closely with our customers to ensure that the tooling we provide is appropriate for each project and tailored to the customer’s needs. Taking account of component specifications, production processes, casting alloys and production runs, we ensure that the tooling we provide delivers quality castings throughout the service life required.
