In today’s competitive market, there are multiple ways to reduce your costs and lead times. Additive Manufacturing is an awesome tool if you know when, where and how to apply this technology. This presentation will review projects that include castings that weigh less than 1 pound to more than 5,000 pounds. The foundry industry has been very successfully using 3D printed sand to produce their aluminum, iron and steel castings. Learn where they have been successful so that you are able to apply what they have done to your own business. Failures have the potential to be very expensive. We will review some options to help you reduce the chance of this happening at your facility. We have worked with many foundries in North America helping them adjust and adapt to using 3D printed sand. The projects shown will help users grab the low hanging fruit as they venture into using 3D printed sand.
