Description

From the Rapid Castings: Rapid Prototypes for Metal Casting Processes program, this introduction highlights how rapid casting and its various techniques have become an indispensable part of modern manufacturers' ability to shorten design and production lead times. Case studies look into the evolution of rapid casting technology and evaluate its flexibility for producing complex, finely detailed castings that eliminate the need for hard tooling, which reduces production costs and time to market.
