Pattern Making

Pattern Making
We manufacture patterns in Wood, Resin, Tooling board, Grp and metal for high and low volume production of castings and for a rapid turnaround polystyrene patterns can be produced. Prototypes for any industry can be produced in full or scaled models.

Our skilled staff have the capability to reverse engineer original / sample castings to produce new pattern equipment to your requirements. Our co-ordinate measuring machine ‘Stiefelmayer’ can obtain critical dimensions for the reverse engineering process as well as checking the accuracy of pattern equipment and castings.
Our CNC machines enable us to keep up to speed with the demands of the modern high precision and manufacturing industry, and our CAD/CAM software enables us to produce high specification pattern equipment and component parts.

Automotive
Motor sports and historic vehicles are part of our usual work portfolio. We have a very wide range of experience within the automotive industry. From producing patterns for historic engines via reverse engineering, pattern equipment for wheels to sports seats for race cars. We work very closely with designers to ensure that designs will translate to the casting stage and that we achieve the successful production of high performance parts and bodywork.

Composites

We have experience working with and machining different composite materials such as foams, fibre reinforced polymers, Epoxy tooling board and sandwich structured composites and have produced composite items for many different industries, to achieve the desired effect of high performance products that are lightweight yet very strong. We have also produced pattern equipment for the main tooling for composite production such as radomes, propellers, wings and simulator parts.
