Hoosier pattern is a valued vendor.  The printed sand cores and molds are shipped quick, accurate and of great quality. 

The service and quality we receive from Hoosier allows us to improve casting quality with CAD perfect cores, and to support trials and sample castings with patternless molds and cores.

The team at Hoosier is great to work with and they provide valued advice and feedback on our printed sand projects.

I love working with Hoosier Pattern because of the amount of technology that they implement on every job from 3D sand printing to scanners to the best CNC’s on the market. They also have some of the best personal in the foundry and tooling field working there. Between the staff and technology, Hoosier Pattern is at the top of their field. Hoosier’s one-on-one relationship with their customers is outstanding, you can call anytime to ask a simple or complex question and if they don’t know the answer they will use there massive amount of resources to help you solve your problem. One of our most recent projects was taking old closed impeller core boxes, scanning them to create a model and then reverse engineered it to produce 3D printed cores. In doing so Plymouth Foundry has gone from 85% in-house scrap due to the old core boxes on the closed impellers to < 1% scrap.

Thank you for your help with our first venture into 3D printed molds and cores and making this process go as smooth as possible. Now that we have a bit of experience and knowledge thanks to Hoosier Pattern, we will feel much more comfortable with future projects.  We could not have chosen a better company to partner with.

Working with Hoosier was such a pleasure and they were so accommodating that we already knew before the prototypes were done that we would want to work with them to create the production tooling for the project. It didn't hurt to tour the facilities and witness first hand the operation. Their facility is full of state of the art machining stations, high quality tooling and talented people.

Hoosier Pattern is very easy to work with.  Their design people are extremely knowledgeable and they work hand in hand with us to make sure all data is complete, precise,  and understood.  As an Engineering Manager, I appreciate every tool they build for us and the knowledge that it will be correct.

Since Hoosier Pattern’s inception 13 years ago, they have been servicing Metal Technologies.  Initially Hoosier produced a small portion of Metal Technologies tooling requirements.  Through the years, Hoosier continued to grow their volume of business with MTI to become our leading supplier of tooling.  Hoosier’ growth can be attributed to their staff’s expertise, their exceptional quality level, competitive pricing, on time delivery, and service.  Through these years, Hoosier has continued to add capabilities that provide their Customers the services they require.  This includes laser scanning, laser printing technology, installations to allow manufacture of pattern plates, heat treat, computer hardware and software, additional machining centers, and building expansion.  Having worked with numerous pattern shops during my career, I would rate Hoosier at the top.  While many of these shops have provided good service and quality, there were few that match the quality, service, and support which Hoosier Pattern has provided.
