CNC in the Pattern Shop

  • Tooling for Bodine’s aluminum, sand and permanent mold castings is produced in-house in our large, fully equipped pattern shop run by eight pattern-makers. Our skilled craftsmen ensure that your design is re-created exactly as you want it.  We have complete facilities for wood, metal and plastic tooling including two FADAL vertical machining centers.  These machines are compatible with our Pro-Engineer CAD/CAM system.

  • We can take your CAD files and directly program them into our machines to produce fully-machined close tolerance patterns, core boxes and permanent molds.

  • A “Lemoine” digitizing and machining system allows us to utilize CAD along with replication of existing shapes or tools.  Scaling capabilities include male-female, mirror image and left right symmetry. S

  • hapes are produced from computer or conventional  models.
