Everything in the foundry has to start with a “pattern”. A pattern or tooling is a full-size model of the part you are trying to cast, patterns can be made from various materials such as mahogany, metal, plastic or styrofoam. It is very important to have suitable patterns, for the quality of the casting is influenced by the quality of the pattern.
Dews Foundry’s in-house pattern shop works closely with the foundry to ensure that the proper patterns are built and maintained in order to meet our customers requirements. Our patternmaker’s have both the skill and vision to take a part from a blueprint and turn it into a physical part. Whether you need a prototype or production tooling, Dews has the capabilties to meet those needs.
Dews Foundry maintains a very large on-site pattern storage with an automated sprinkler system to ensure that your patterns and tooling are protected while in storage at our facility.
