Hoosier Pattern Inc.’s two in-house sand 3D printers are suited for helping foundries produce castings, as well as low-volume production and prototyping in a range of industries. 3D-printed sand can shorten lead times and save customers time and money. The sand is printed from a CAD file, enabling design freedom. The company says it can design and print geometrically complex parts, bypassing fabrication to create the cores or molds typical of conventional casting methods. Design freedom and the ability to scale production volumes enable fast delivery, according to the company.
