Pattern Development and Production
One of Talladega Foundry and Machine Co., Inc. main assets is its pattern making capabilities. The Foundry employs some of the most skilled craftsmen in the industry in its pattern making facility. The patterns are crafted using the latest technology in wood, plastic, and aluminum. The development of patterns for the casting process begins with the drawings and specifications provided by the customer or from our in house engineering department and is then hand crafted in detail.
Quality patterns are the key to quality castings and over the years Talladega Foundry has a proven record of producing both.
