The ability to accurately reverse engineer existing castings is essential to any modern foundry. Reverse engineering could be required for a variety of reasons ranging from replication of an old casting where original patterns have been lost to improving mechanical performance or learning from an existing design to replicate or improve it. Whatever the reason, … 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.
