Our core businesses :

  • Design / moulding / restoration: from a blueprint or a workpiece that you want us to reproduce; our job will be to create or model a useable pattern.
  • Production/ Casting: The mould-making method is determined by the complexity of the workpiece. The “drawback” technique, which is not widely practised today, is regularly used when the shape of the part reveals the undercut areas. Our methods are explained in detail here.
  • Casting: This takes place once a week. This is a pivotal moment where every gesture must be specific and delicate. Shortly thereafter, the shakeout reveals the raw casting.
  •  Completion: After heating, cooling and shaking out the casting is segmented, sandblasted, trimmed, ground, tooled, hammered, welded, assembled… and thus the material begins to take on the final form desired.
  • Finishing: To achieve the desired appearance, finishing is all about polishing and varnishing or applying a treatment to the surface (chromium-plating/ nickel-plating/ gilding) or a sheen to the product to achieve the final appearance.
