Great alternative to typical pattern making for sand castings.
Patternless molding is a process where the desired shape is machined directly into the sand mold. Patternless Molding is very flexible. This is because the shape is stored as an electronic image and converted to a machining language for actual production.
Minor changes can be made quickly and efficiently. Our patternless molding process within the electronic world has a high level of confidence that all resulting dimensions will be accurate. Changes can be made at any time up until the mold cavity is cut. Time to market for any size program, but especially low volume and prototype, is cut in half.
Why select Patternless Molding?
Turnaround time is much less than for new pattern development
No pattern storage, maintenance, or tracking
Cost-effective solution for R&D projects
Quick modifications for shrink factors related to different alloys being poured to the same design
No tooling wear or repair
The product is still manufactured using standard production processes
