3D Printed Moulds and Cores

This technology enables complex cores that would normally require multiple core-boxes, to be made in one piece, through a process of printing layers.

Because there are no restrictions on undercuts, cores that would otherwise be impossible to make by traditional techniques can also be produced.

Regardless of size, moulds and cores can be made with an accuracy of ± 0.25mm, enabling sand castings to be made to dimensional standards equivalent to that of lost wax investment castings (ISO 8062 Casting Tolerance Grade CT4 to CT6).

Moulds and cores are delivered to the foundry in 48hrs from receipt of the 3D CAD model files. Sourcing these advanced moulds from Cti reduces the lead time to production, thus increasing a company’s overall competitiveness.
