Machining of a Main Frame Pattern used in a Iron Foundry for the Wind Power Generation Industry
Bren-Ko Patterns is well known for manufacturing first-class pattern equipment for the foundry industry. We work closely with our customers to develop the most cost effective tooling possible. We operate a large facility with both precision fabrication and heavy lifting equipment; this makes us the supplier of choice for large pattern fabrications.
We fabricated the main frame pattern pictured here for use in casting parts for a wind power generation application. Using both manual and CNC controlled equipment, our skilled journeyman pattern makers crafted this 101.61” x 134.77” x 133.99” pine work piece to exacting standards of construction. Having the right equipment to carefully maneuver this large, heavy piece enabled them to fabricate the counters, curves, and angles with the tight precision required for it to repeatedly provide a dimensionally true casting.
Both visual and dimensional inspections guaranteed that that this large work piece was precisely on target with the specifications. We delivered on time and on budget, ensuring our customer would meet their production demands. When large component casting is on your manufacturing agenda, contact us to learn more about how we can help.
