Foundry tooling consists of pattern impressions made from plastic, aluminum or wood and the corresponding gating & risers mounted on aluminum plates. As of 2011 Pier Foundry has the capability to cut 16 x 20 and 20 x 24 fully machined aluminum plates in house on its Haas Vertical CNC Machine. All of the tooling used at Pier Foundry is created from 3D CAD models and CNC cut to ensure the utmost accuracy. A pre & post production inspection takes place on all patterns & core boxes. Pier prides itself on fast turnaround on new pattern tooling. We have the capabilities to produce patterns and core boxes in 2 weeks!
