Cordek can create digitally machined patterns and moulds for a wide range of precast products in a variety of materials. Whether the mould material has already been defined or if you’re looking for advice, our Project Design Team can assist you in choosing the most appropriate solution, which considers the required finish, quantity, budget and timescale.

A ‘pattern’ is the name given to the first tooling stage of a product. Sometimes called ‘plug’ or a ‘master’, it is a high-quality representation of the required shape and is often produced in a strong material and paint finished to ensure the best possible surface finish. A ‘mould’ is any shape that is used to create multiple finished products. It is the negative of the finished product and can be created directly, or by moulding from a pattern. A mould must be sufficiently strong to produce the required number of products and must contain no undercuts, or it will not be possible to remove the products.

Moulds are normally treated with a form of release wax or oil so the products don’t stick to them. If made in a strong material like GRP, a well-maintained mould is capable of producing dozens, or perhaps even hundreds of identical products. The ‘product’ is the finished shape. All products from the same mould will be identical.

The Process

Developing Your Concept

A member of our Project Design Team will work with you to develop your concept.
