FASTER

  • Bidirectional single pass building

  • Faster build speeds

  • Streamlined prototyping and lead-times

  • Low volume / Small batch production

  • Easier build cleanout

AFFORDABLE & ECONOMICAL

  • Lower capital investment

  • Lower operating costs

    • Sand

      • Raw/Untreated/Uncoated

      • Reclaimed Sand

      • Thermally reclaimable at low temperature

    • Lower cost binder provides physical strengths as good or better than other binder systems

    • Easy de-sanding & shakeout

      No post-processing required (Ovens, Microwaves, etc.)

    • Extremely good shakeout and casting finish with all alloys

    • No flasks required

  • No expensive hard tooling to procure, maintain and keep in storage

  • Greater design freedom for lightweight, integral, near net shape castings

GREENER

  • Use any Sand: Silica, Fused Silica, Olivine, Chromite, Zircon, man-made Alumino Silicates, and Reclaimed Sands

  • The Sand is used in a raw, untreated, and uncoated state

  • Thermally reclaimable at low temperature after building/casting

  • Our patent applied for Binder is quite unique

  • Water soluble, Organic, Plant-based, Sustainable, Non-Toxic, Unregulated

  • Zero VOCs, Zero HAPs, no unpleasant/hazardous odor (smells like a bakery)

LEANER & LIGHTER

  • Cloud/Flash Drive Warehouse – No inventory of expensive patterns and core boxes… a breakthrough for replacement/maintenance castings

  • Advanced design geometries, degrees of freedom for lightweight casting designs

    • No draft

    • Undercuts

    • Integral cores

    • Nearer net shape to minimize post-processing
