Our firefighting industry casting services include:

Assembly analysis/casting integration: We work closely with our firefighting industry clients to determine where possibilities exist to shave costs. For example, we saved one customer 60% in production costs by determining that two castings and one piece could be cast as a single piece. Thanks to us, the company could recoup its tooling costs in less than two years.

Reverse engineering: Using 3D scanning, we can provide design analysis to replicate a part that’s been produced elsewhere. We’re also able to analyze chemical and metallographic characteristics to identify materials and post-production processes used. Once this is determined, we consult with the customer to develop an effective course of action to move to production.

Prototypes: Computer modeling has its place, but nothing beats an actual physical prototype. Prototypes help evaluate a manufacturing process and give a preview of how a part will look, feel and handle. At Patriot, we often produce fully functional prototypes, as well as non-working ones that are useful to present to potential investors, stakeholders and test market panels.
