Case Study 3
To produce a large quantity of aluminium parts to be the main façade feature of a major City of London office building. The architect was very keen to ensure that all the components had sharp and well-defined features typical of CNC machining.
CNC machining of main façade casting
Using the clients 3D model data we CNC machined wooden patterns which were in turn used to make aluminium sand castings of the 8 different pieces. Each casting was then CNC machined all over to give the required finish. The round casting pictured was CNC turned with the flutes milled using the machines live tooling feature.
The square section components were machined on all faces using a 4th axis CNC indexer.
