Limited Production Runs.

Traditional mould making and casting for clients has been a mainstream part of my work ever since I turned my varied creative hobbies into my profession. Principally I deal with vulcanising rubber moulds to centrifugally-cast small jewellery sized components and miniature figurines from low melt alloys such as pewter. However my workshop is equiped with various equipment to cover casting a wide range of materials. This includes a vacuum chamber for degassing RTV rubber moulds for resin casting through to a digital furnace, kiln, and wax injector needed to cover lost wax casting of non-ferrous and precious metals.

As a traditional artist I find automated "digital" manufacturing can be a bit sterile compared to more hand-crafted means. However where technology aids the creative process I am happy to use rapid prototyping equipment. To that end I run a small laser cutter/engraver, I designed and built my own high-res DLP 3D printer and have scanning equipment for reverse engineering 3D data files from small hand made objects. I've also built myself a basic set-up for simple photo-etching (chemical milling) of very thin sheet metals. Primarily all of the above has been aimed at expanding my capabilities for taking on one-of-a-kind bespoke miniature creative projects. However these techniques and equipment have all found use for clients wanting limited production runs of identical objects; be that corporate clients wanting modest quantities of identical presentation pieces, cottage industry retailers looking for short production runs, or even artists and amateur model makers just needing a few bits'n'piecs for their own projects. I will stress I am not a factory capable of cheaply mass-producing tens of thousands of identical goods per day, but for those looking for more of a "boutique service" capable of manufacturing modest quantities, then feel free to contact me, to chat about your requirements.
