All of our CAD Engineers are time-served and have extensive experience of tooling design and manufacture.
We run multiple CAD seats utilising three different CAD systems:
With these CAD systems we can:
At the CAD modelling stage we work closely with our customers to ensure that our tooling is always to the correct specification for the intended application.
We undertake reverse engineering with our Faro Edge arm, which has an integrated laser scanning system. The point cloud data generated from the scanning process is used to create fully surfaced 3D CAD models of the original, from which any number of exact duplicates or geometric variants can be produced.
Central Patternmaking, the largest supplier of tooling to the Castings PLC Group, continues to raise its game with the highest standards, attention to detail and ever decreasing lead times that we demand.
