For over two decades, Hoosier Pattern has always been on the cutting edge of innovation. We’re consistently raising the bar in our industry while maintaining the highest quality for our customers. In 2013, Hoosier Pattern was the first service center to own and operate a 3D sand printer in the United States. As of 2020, we have four 3D sand printers in-house as well as over twenty-five machining centers.
Hoosier Pattern started in 1997 in a 3,500 square foot space with just a couple of machining centers. Today, we operate a 90,000 square foot facility with state-of-the-art technology, allowing us to take on jobs from various customers across multiple industries. Our technology includes:
- Over twenty-five machining centers including vertical and horizontal machining
- CNC lathes
- Five-axis mill
- Plate saws
- Four 3D sand printers for sand molds and cores
- 3D plastic printer
- Manual CMM
- Laser scanner
Hoosier Pattern delivers manufacturing capabilities to a wide variety of industrial and commercial pumps. Our customers can request centrifugal pumps, water, sewage pumps, turbine pumps, transfer pumps, fluid flow pumps, and the list doesn’t stop there! Our advanced technology allows for pinpoint accuracy and fast turn-around times.
Within two weeks of submitting a product order to Hoosier Pattern, a sand mold of a pump part is made and is ready to ship to the customer’s preferred foundry. Hoosier Pattern uses the latest technology from the start, so castings can be made quicker, and products can reach customers sooner.
In addition, Hoosier Pattern has a diverse list of industries we serve, such as consumer appliance, agriculture, and automotive industries.
There is no need to sacrifice design for manufacturability when working with Hoosier Pattern. Complex core designs are 3D printed as one piece, reducing or eliminating assembly errors and foundry casting defects. No internal fins or mismatches. 3D printed foundry molds do not need traditional parting lines and flask sizes. This process gives the foundry the freedom to gate, add risers, and feed the casting in the best possible way to produce the optimal casting.
Complex pump component castings produced quickly and at a known cost are why pump manufacturers turn to 3D printing as the solution to pump casting problems.
