About Us

Absolute Patterns provide Pattern and Tooling primarily for the foundry industry as well as producing patterns for a variety of other uses for vacuum forming, GRP moulding, carbon fibre lay up etc…

Having been established over 4 years now in Derby in the Heart of the East Midlands with over 70 years combined experience in pattern and tool making.

Absolute Patterns have and always will try and stay at the forefront of technology to enable us to deliver the best possible service.


We have four CAD seats running the latest PowerShape software, we also have solid modelling capabilities suitable for method simulation requirements if needed, we have three seats of Delcam’s PowerMill software running six VMC machines, running round the clock 24/7.

We’re currently working towards being ISO 9001 registered which I have been promised will be complete by around the end of the year.


Our Inspectors have gathered experience from many industries from aerospace, automotive and domestic sectors.

We can provide one-off inspection of parts or multi batch inspection on our 1x1x1m Stiefelmayer controlled with Delcam’s CAD based PowerInspect software.

We can setup and use a bespoke template of your choosing if required or use our default template.

We know and use subcontract inspection companies that can produce first article inspection services if required.
