3D Printing Helps Melron Meet Tight Sand Casting DeadlinesBy Robolab Technologies In 3D printers
Melron Corporation makes architectural hardware using the sand casting process. The challenge with this approach is that it relies on the use of metal patterns that are costly and time consuming to make, particularly under tight deadlines, making design changes impractical.
Watch the video to see how Melron thwarts these challenges using 3D printing to create the mold patterns. 3D printed patterns can be created faster, for less cost, and allows Melron to validate designs before investing in metal tooling.
