3D printing in molding
The use of 3D printing in your company:
The basic element used in the molding is the model. It is surrounded by sand molding, silicone or ceramics, and on this basis a form is produced that will be used later in the process. The preparation of tooling for casting molds using traditional CNC machine tools is a series of complex activities, including the design of the machining process, the preparation of machine tooling and tools. It is time-consuming and requires a lot of labour, and often the model needs to be altered.
3D printing technology allows you to significantly reduce the cost and time spent on a project, while maintaining the precision of the final form. 3D printing also excludes imperfections resulting from improper molding, thereby providing flexibility and shortening of the process time.
Thanks to models made on a 3D printer, it is possible to produce personalised elements or short series. Trace casting allows an accurate metal copy of the printed item to be produced.
Clients about us
Parts printed in 3D on Factory 2.0 Production System meet all our requirements – both in terms of strength, dimensional accuracy, turnaround time and weight loss. Many elements are installed in cars as final products.
Łukasz Tomkiewicz, Managing Director, Arrinera Automotive S.A.
Creating a functional prototype has never been so cheap, fast and easy.
Miki Thurzo, Senior Engineer, METRIS 3D
3D printing cuts the design time, and as a result speeds up the creation of the final product.
Factory 2.0 Production System allows large format printing. Thanks to OMNI3D’s solution, we can analyse the ergonomics of models that were printed in full scale. This is very important in our sector.
Using plastic gears printed on the Factory 2.0 3D printer significantly reduces the costs of repair of the production line and its downtime.
