FOUNDRY TOOLING • PROTOTYPES • CASTINGS
Traditionally, patternmaking is a creative process that is both an art and a craft. Our service is creating a wooden master pattern for industrial production. We are skilled in using: hand sketches, existing parts, blueprints, or CAD files/drawings, to produce a wood model. The tools utilized to create this model, date from the 19th Century to the most contemporary technologies available today. Then using this model, a sand mold is produced. Molten metal is poured in the mold to form a casting. This pattern equipment can be created to produce single or multiple cast parts. Ragusa Pattern is known for making a wide variety of products ranging from high-end racing components, movie filming equipment, architectural furnishings for hotels and business applications, classified military apparatus, nautical parts, telescope observatory components, and much more.
