Manufacturers across North America can now tap the benefits of 3D printed molds and cores through ExOne’s new Sand 3D Printing Network, ensure a stable supply of metal casted products even during the COVID-19 crisis.

ExOne’s Sand 3D Printing Network is targeted at aerospace, automotive, agricultural and other manufacturers that can use it to tap the benefits of 3D printed sand molds and cores for high-value metal casting projects without significant CapEx investments on hardware.

By visiting the dedicated online portal, manufacturers can locate the X1 printers available for metal casting molds and cores. The newly formed network is powered by more than 40 proven binder jet 3D printers throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico. Largely owned by premium pattern shops and foundries, this fleet of S-Max and S-Print systems can provide quick turnaround on high-quality 3D sand molds and cores, usually within 3-5 days.

Sand 3D Printing Network

“The new ExOne Sand 3D Printing network can help manufacturers easily locate an ExOne sand 3D printer that best meets their needs,” said John Hartner, ExOne CEO. “What’s more, our network can help ensure a steady supply of sand molds and cores for metal castings, especially during a crisis, as well as enable reshoring of key parts that may be difficult to ship during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.”

Aside from speed, ExOne’s sand 3D printing network offers manufacturers a number of other benefits. for example, sand cores can often be 3D printed as a monolithic unit – eliminating the labor, error and scrap that comes with assembling separate cores into a single piece prior to casting. In addition, 3D printing enables manufacturers to overcome traditional design restraints and easily iterate breakthrough new designs with ease.
New 3D enabled rigging, riser and gating designs can ensure a high-quality casting that can be simulated and often completed in a single pour. Furthermore, 3D printed molds and cores are a digital manufacturing process and do not require the expensive creation, storage or repair of patterns or molds for later reuse

The ExOne Sand 3D Printing Network can support a wide range of foundry materials, including aluminum, bronze, copper, nickel-based alloys, iron, magnesium, steels, titanium and zinc. ExOne’s premium OneCast support service can also provide design assistance for sand molds and cores, as well as additional simulation services to help ensure a done-in-one casting.
