Gamma Foundries’ Rapid Prototyping Brings Ideas to Life

Gamma Foundries’ rapid prototype casting services enable our professionals to help clients take their part and product ideas off the drawing board and bring them into reality. Our rapid developers work with the latest technology, including laser scanning, modeling, simulation and 3D printing to create prototypes that meet customer specifications even for the most complex geometries. Offering a faster lead time and lower price point, these prototypes are well-suited for testing and can be modified, if necessary, without the costs associated with changing a pattern. Rapid prototype casting is also a cost-effective, more expedient way to produce low volume orders and complicated geometries.

Gamma Foundries has been dedicated to delivering excellence in sand casting since the 1950s. From our 80,000-square-foot foundry in Richmond Hill, we are able to fulfill orders of any size. From one-offs to production runs in the thousands, our highly skilled team is experienced in working with a diversity of alloys and is dedicated to delivering exceptional results. Rapid prototyping is just one of the many services we provide to help customers realize their production goals and bring ideas to life.

GAMMA FOUNDRIES

We are leading in new technology Laser Scanning, Modeling, Simulation, 3D sand printed molds.

LASER SCAN

  • Allows us to replicate a part as a 3D model.
  • Castings, tooling or any object we choose

BENEFITS OF SCAN

  • Reverse engineering from a worn out part without measuring and drawing the part manually
  • Provide a solid model that pattern makers can load into their CNC machine to cut the pattern
  • Provide solid models that Gamma can add their gating system to and run simulations of filling and solidification
  • Allows the cost effective for low volume and complicated geometries
  • Quick turnaround up to 2 weeks for finished product

FILLING & SOLIDIFICATION SIMULATION

PRINTED MOLDS AND CORES

  • The model created by scanning can be used to produce a 3D printed sand mold or cores
  • Porotypes and short runs can be produced without the expense of long lead time and making a pattern.
  • The design can be quickly changed if required, no need for costly pattern modifications
