Dufêtre Michat, entreprise spécialisée dans la fonderie de précision sur Lyon et sa région

and Toolings

We are a company specialised in sand foundry prototypes.

We can build from scratch (2D or 3D drawings) all types of parts. Starting for the design of its die-cast tooling until its machining.

We work on different materials such as wood, resin, aluminium, steel, cast iron, Bronze...with our hand or CNC machines.

Thanks to our historical kown-how, the modelling for foundries, we have a control on the whole added-value chain: from the design to the building of the prototype part, through the making of the die-cats toolings.

In addition, we have developped since several decades, a kwow-how in the design of compression molds for composite parts. We can produce serial molds as well as prototypes molds for your laboratories

Finally, we have a 3D control metrology laboratory, which helps us control the full compliance of the products we deliver to our customers.

Our wish is to accompany you through your R&D projects for the design&production of your first prototypes and toolings.
