We’re Having An Open House!

HPI is having an open house and you are invited! We are opening our doors for the public to come inside and see what we do on a day to day basis. We are proud to be a part of a hardworking community and are excited to share what we do with them. 

There will be refreshments, facility tours and even some casting! We will have our 3D sand printers running in our newly renovated sand room. There will be a job box fresh out of a 3D printer where people can extract their own keychain molds from the sand, clean them and then pour molten metal into them! Once the keychains cool, employees will help remove the gating and rough edges so attendees can take home a small keepsake from HPI. 

Along with our 3D sand printers running, our CNC machines will be running, our plastic printer will be printing and our laser scanner will be fired up for visitors to see HPI work in real time. 

Mark your calendars and come see the great things we are doing every day at Hoosier Pattern!

HPI Celebrates 20 Years In Business!!

In November of 1997, Hoosier Pattern consisted of 3 employees in a 4600 sq. foot area with 4 machines: 1 vertical CNC machine, 1 manual bridg port, 1 manual lathe and 1 welder.

Over the last 20 years Hoosier Pattern has gained recognition as one of the region's premier pattern shops as well as a becoming a leader within the industry. In 2013, Hoosier purchased a 3D sand printer and at the time it was the largest 3D printer in the United States. With the addition of the 3D sand printer in HPI's toolbox, Hoosier was elevated to a new level of manufacturing. Not only could the HPI team build you a tool for high volume production, but they could also help out with low volume production or even prototypes. 

Present day, Hoosier currently employs 42 people in a 80,000 square foot facility. Hoosier houses over 20 machining centers including: vertical machining centers, horizontal machining centers, 2 CNC lathes, 2 EDM's a manual CMM, and a laser scanner. They also house 2 ExOne S-Max™ Sand Printers within their walls as well. Hoosier offers an apprentice program that is registered with the United States department of labor and offers internships and job shadowing for current students interested in the trade. Congratulations on everyone at Hoosier Pattern for celebrating this milestone anniversary!
