Tooling is a necessary step in producing a part and here at CPM Industries, we offer
two different forms. CPM has the capabilities of producing Foundry Patterns, which
are patterns, or molds, of the part to be created. The foundry uses the pattern to
form the shape of the part in which the molten metal is poured. CPM also has the
capabilities to produce Vacuum Form Patterns for those customers who have chosen
to utilize vacuum forming. Vacuum patterns are generally only used for vacuum forming
plastics at a rather shallow depth.
