We will do a demonstration of melting alloy and pouring the molten alloy into 3D printed sand molds as per the sand casting process. This demo will be interactive with the audience and willing participants will be performing the metal pouring and subsequent sand mold breakout. The result will be that each participant will learn about the sand casting method and will walk away with a commemorative casting specifically designed or picked out for RAPID + TCT 2021 in which they performed the work. Representatives from Hoosier Pattern will be providing the necessary supplies for producing the castings and will be available to answer any questions during this demo.

Learning Objectives:

  • Realize benefits of printed sand
  • Understand flow path of molten metal
  • Understand shakeout process of castings from printed molds
