Custom Casting

Custom Casting
A pattern or model is required to make the sand molds Robinson Iron uses for casting. Robinson patternmakers are apprenticed just as they were in the nineteenth century to masters who teach them their craft. A variety of materials are used to sculpt in clay or wood and often a CNC Multi-Axis Router operating on a computer program is used to generate a three dimensional composite pattern. Shrinkage of the cooling metal must be accounted for and every detail must be drafted properly for the component to be cast properly. Robinson patternmakers are knowledgeable about current foundry operations and technical requirements.
