Wooden Aluminium & Thermocol Pattern Making
Patterns are used to create the shape in the sand, into which molten metal will be poured to become the casting. Patterns can be made from metal, wood or plastic. Most patterns are made from aluminum, called match plates and have a long life before wearing out. Wooden patterns can be used provided the quantities are low and the wall thickness fairly substantial. Pattern Makers also manufacture the core boxes required (see under Core Making). Shell core boxes can be made in cast iron, steel or aluminum. CO2 core boxes are made in aluminum or wood.
We have heavy-duty woodworking equipment and highly experienced patternmakers to make any type of wood pattern, core box, or model that can be designed. We can make pattern by using seasoned Teak Wood and various grade Aluminum.
We undertake pattern/core box design and construction, gating and risers, alterations to existing tooling, and cast ability enhancements. Foundry tooling consists of patterns, core boxes, models and all the rigging that makes a complete job ready to run in a foundry.
