The company has developed a specialist, and market leading, pattern-making process.
The process offers advantages over conventional methods. It enables the company to offer a very large number of very accurate standard and custom designed items. The process is fast and it reduces the cost.
Working with the Foundry
We work with a foundry to best configure mounting and gating systems for the pattern to ensure a quality casting. Every foundry has different requirements based on their particular equipment and experience. It’s often possible to hand-mold and cast several trial pieces before mounting and gating is applied. This can help to identify problem areas of the casting that may need risers or more complex gating.
We choose wood based on a variety of factors such as stability, durability, and life expectancy of the pattern. Most patterns are comprised mainly of wood.
We will also use plastic resins, epoxies, fiberglass and other composites for our foundry patterns – if necessary.
Metal will be used for a large number of castings or in a pressure cast match plate if a piece has an offset parting line. Metal will also be used where required for shell core boxes. Metal Pattern equipment can be supplied. It is suited to high volume applications including gravity dies and pressure dies for all industries.
- Cast Iron
- Cast Steel
- Cast Brass – Bronze
Traditional – Handmade
We are specialists in producing precision foundry patterns & core boxes from quality timbers. These patterns are hand made to exacting specifications and range from steam engine parts. We use to supply parts for:
- Traction Engine’s
- Steam Locomotives
- Vintage racing cars
- Canal System Gear
- Vintage Plant & Machinery
- Cad Drawing
Software – CAD Data Transfer
Success depends on how well business partners collaborate and react to changes in design and process, regardless of their geographical location.
Depending upon the severity level of the errors encountered, the only option available may be to re-create the data or the complete model.
Typical errors encountered:
Edges and faces having small gaps between them
Sliver faces having very thin aspect ratios; difficult to detect.
Duplicate vertices and edges etc etc.
Inadequately trained CAD Engineer can compound the problem. There is no substitution for investing in data exchange training.
In our company can be called upon for expert advice and assistance in pinpointing errors and problems, by drawing upon many years experience of working on issues of CAD Interoperability.
Industries across the globe are becoming more dependant on advanced computer technologies. In response to this our company actively develops software applications specifically targeted to at the foundry industry.
Solid Edge: Solid Edge, a core component of the Velocity SeriesT portfolio, is the most complete hybrid 2D/3D CAD system that uses synchronous technology for accelerated design, faster change, and improved imported reuse. With superior part and assembly modeling, drafting, transparent data management, and built-in finite element analysis, Solid Edge eases the growing complexity of product design.
EDGECAM Solid Machinist: EDGECAM Solid Machinist is a powerful and seamlessly integrated CAM system for generating milling and turning machining strategies and NC code from solid models.
Creo – formally Pro/ENGINEER
ZPrinterR 450: ZPrinters set the standard for speed, color, affordability and ease of use. 3D printer suit a wide variety of customer needs, from high school education through the most demanding commercial environments. In addition, it provides 3D printing materials to suit many applications.
