Patterns, Prototypes & Models
MHP have been producing patterns using traditional methods for over 40 years by employing skilled craftsmen.
This base of traditional skill has been merged with modern technology using CAD CAM and 5 axis routing to achieve the best products for our customers.
Below are details of some tooling processes which have benefited from this fusion using 5 axis routing, along with the traditional skill of time served pattern makers.
Produced from wood metal or model board these are used for the production of Ferrous and Non-ferrous castings. Patterns can be produced for one-off requirements to full production plated patterns and fully automated disematic production.
From wood, metal or plastic from one off to production plated patterns and disematics
