Pattern Technology

Aerolloy has vast experience in the use of many different pattern technologies due to its parent company PTC Industries Ltd operating in a wide market.

The aerospace castings will be produced using both the traditional Lost Wax process from Metal Dies, but also a more modern technology of Printcast, whereby the patterns are printed on 3D printers straight from the CAD model. This has so far proven to be a highly repeatable and accurate process.

For our Defence and other industrial customers utilising this facility, Aerolloy can also produce patterns from our trademarked Rapidcast process, whereby patterns are manufactured on site and within one or two days for single use.
