Autosport Gearbox - Bearing Carrier Casting
This image shows production standard pattern equipment that has been CNC machined directly into a hardwearing epoxy tooling board. All core boxes were machined from high density board and the equipment is finished with steel strickle faces and double thickness boards and frames.
Midas designed all pattern methods within our CAD dept. before CNC machining all the pattern detail. The machined pieces were then finished off by our traditional patternmakers who also fitted all necessary foundry methods and running/gating systems. The very high standard of surface finish ensure the best quality mould and therefore the best quality casting surface.
Typical lead-times for this type of work are 3 - 4 weeks.
