- Producing a traditional pattern
- Making a foam pattern for one- time use
- Or we could use 3D, additive or subtractive manufacturing technologies to design molds and cores to make the first casting
Limited Production Run
For example, it is expensive to build a high-quality pattern for a 1- or 2-piece casting project for these short runs. Alternatives include foam patterns or 3D print, both which offer cost effective solutions, particularly if the future of the casting need is unknown.
Additionally, Sivyer Steel offers onsite UT, MT, and X-Ray testing whereby we can complete all necessary inspections for the customer for a prototype casting. In short, we are interested in providing the service of prototyping along with the casting itself.
Some foundries won’t take the time to provide and develop all this with a customer, but we do. We have made castings with no orders to ever repeat. Although this is not ideal, we are here to serve you, our customers!
