Patterns & Prototypes

MHP have been producing patterns using traditional methods for over 40 years by employing skilled craftsmen. 

This base of traditional skill has been merged with modern technology using CAD CAM and 5 axis routing to achieve the best products for our customers.

Below are details of some tooling processes which have benefited from this fusion of technology, along with the traditional skill of time served pattern makers.

CAD Model designs
Proto Vacuum Forming Tool

Proto Vac Tools

Wood, Resin or model board vac tooling is used for design and development and proving
of any design and concept ideas.


Foundry Patterns

Produced on our 5 axis routers and finished by skilled craftsmen from wood metal or model board these are used in the production of Ferrous and Non-ferrous castings.

Patterns can be produced for one-off requirements to full production plated patterns and fully automated disematic production.


Jigs And Assembly Fixtures

Drill jigs, router fixtures, suitable for all CNC routing machines. These are produced in Model Board or Aluminium as required for the process or the longevity of the product.
