Scroll down to go through the different stages of our casting process.

Patternmaking

The first step in the casting process is making a pattern. A pattern is a re-usable tool used to create single-use moulds, which are destroyed each time a casting is poured. The pattern creates the exterior shape of the part to be cast, If the casting has internal hollows, a corebox is used to make a core that makes the hollow.
