LEADERS IN CAST METAL RAPID PROTOTYPE PRODUCTION
P. I. Castings is a leader in the production of cast metal Rapid Prototypes having been involved for 30 years since the first stereolithography machine arrived in Europe. Only a couple of independent investment casting companies in the UK have their own Rapid Prototyping equipment and we are one of them!
P. I. Castings can take your CAD designs and turn them directly into a model, which can be used to produce investment castings in our usual range of metals including Aluminium, Steel, Stainless Steel, Brass, Bronze and Zinc.
Apart from using patterns produced by our own 3D Printer, we have made thousands of castings with most other Rapid Prototyping techniques, including Stereolithography, Quickcast, Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) and rubber mould methods.
There is no single technique which is suitable for all investment casting applications and we will advise you on the most suitable to produce your component.
