Aluminium Pattern Making
The use of computer modelling has revolutionised the design of castings and in more recent years, the manufacturing of the patterns required. Here at Foundry and Fabrication, we are able to take your designs and transform them into the finished article, whether by using your three dimensional models, or - if you have only 2D drawings or concepts – by drawing them up into 3D so you can visualise the finished part before manufacture is commenced. The use of models and CNC machining of the patterns in modelboards (hard plastic style materials) enables a more accurate part and better quality finish.
Whilst this is often the preferred way to operate, we are still able to make or refurbish patterns by the traditional hand-skilled patternmakers. The better the pattern, the better the finished part.
