Binder jet 3D printing is revolutionizing sandcasting & enabling complex cores that can’t be produced any other way and organic rigging designs that help significantly decrease scrap rates. Foundries embracing the digital workflow are expanding business by offering rapid prototyping with easy design iterations, fast turnarounds without tooling lead times, and decreased scrap rates. When evaluating the additive manufacturing process, foundries must look at its upstream and downstream effects. How quickly can you start pouring pieces? How can you get parts moving into the supply chain faster? How can you improve rigging to ensure successful pours? How can you improve quality and reduce downstream operations? We’ll explore the economics of integrating a digital workflow with 3D printing through case studies of successful applications that got product to market faster, made locally, and with fewer labor requirements.
