The key benefits of 3D Printing, also known as additive manufacturing, can supplement or partially replace the casting method. Some castings are directly printed by metal powders, for example, titanium alloys, nickel alloys and steel parts. However, 3D Printing has found a unique position in other casting aspects, such as printing the wax pattern, ceramic shell, sand core, sand mould, etc. Also, 3D Printing is not just a manufacturing method, it will revolutionise the design of products, assemblies and parts, such as castings, patterns, cores, moulds and shells in casting production.
We are redesigning the future of castings and moulds into truss or spatially open and skeleton structures.3D Printing technology is having a significant impact on manufacturing, including casting production. Traditional casting methods are complicated and involve making a pattern manually or by machine, creating
a core and mould separately. Now everthing is done by the 3D Printing process.
3D Printers create prototypes to determine if the design meets the clients' concept and functionality expectations. Alternatively, the prototype is used to test parts for their forming method and their ability to function with other elements in the assembly. Using printing technology called Rapid Manufacturing, the technology can produce cast parts. This process is called Rapid Casting.
Many materials are used in 3D Printing; however, we use metal powder when 3D Printing for metal parts.The 3D direct making of metal parts, known as fast manufacturing, is completed without making patterns, dies, or moulds. 3D laser melting is used for superalloys, titanium alloys, steels, especially stainless steels and aluminium alloys.
