See below for details on the various services we provide:
Pattern Design & Development
Our pattern shop has two pattern engineers with 30+ years experience building patterns, and capabilities for in-house patterns. We use SolidWorks and Solid Cast solidification software and 3D modeling for all jobs, and offer complete machining, fabrication and assembly via our sister company Advantage Precision Products. Sawbrook's monthly production of 400+ tons shows our capability to get any job done.
Sawbrook Steel offers solidification modeling if requested. Solidification Modeling aids in pattern building, improves customer confidence, reduces scrap and prevents mistakes before they happen.
Patterns are stored in two separate buildings. Both buildings are covered, have emergency sprinkler systems and are secured by 24 hour surveillance. Our computerized information system keeps track of pattern locations which allows for fast and easy locating of tooling.
