We will discuss what 3D printing methods are being used in the foundry tooling industry. How Pattern Makers, the foundry tooling providers, are using additive manufacturing to help facilitate foundries in producing metal castings. 3D printing used in the foundry is helping to produce metal castings that are made faster, with more accuracy and with more consistency. Additive Manufacturing is not a threat to the foundry but another valuable tool to be used when it is advantageous. We will explain the markers to notice when it is the right time to consider using this technology to help make your casting.
