Sand Casting Applications Using Rapid Prototyping Technology
Using PolyJet technology for sand casting applications can increase cost savings, reduce product development time and engender new design developments. The Stratasys line of 3D printers that use PolyJet technology brings high-resolution rapid prototyping solutions to casting environments. Sand casting is typically used for processing low-temperature metals, such as iron, copper, aluminum, magnesium and nickel alloys. It can also be used for high- temperature metals when other means would be impractical. The sand used in this process is bonded together using clays or chemical binders.
