Seagrove, NC, August 15, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- After 17 years as a traditional bronze casting foundry, Carolina Bronze, located in Seagrove, NC, has decided to expand and update their services to meet the needs of sculptors in the 21st century. In addition to adding state of the art technology, including 3D laser scanning, 3D imaging and large scale CNC machining, Carolina Bronze has added an additional 4500 sq. ft. of space to accommodate their new equipment.
With this new technology at its disposal, Carolina Bronze can now scan the sculptor’s original model using a Minolta laser scanner. Digital information that is so detailed, even the fingerprints of the sculptor show up, is then transmitted to the computer. This digital information is then fed into another program which changes it into a code that operates a computerized gantry router. The router can then carve an exact replica of the original image in foam in any size desired. The more traditional process of making molds, waxes and casting can then be completed.
Until now, sculptors had to go to California or Texas to take advantage of this technology. With the addition of these services, Carolina Bronze is now the finest full service bronze casting foundry on the East Coast.
Some of theirr most recent projects include the 10’ figure of General Nathanael Greene for the city of Greensboro’s 200th anniversary and the North Carolina Fire Fighter’s memorial in downtown Raleigh, NC which includes four life size figures.
