Three-dimensional printing technology continues to develop new materials, processes and equipment for emerging markets, novel applications and as a means to decrease costs and timing compared to conventional manufacturing techniques. Adding to its capability to manufacture metal parts and tooling via 3-D printing, the ProMetal Division of Extrude Hone Corp. has recently introduced rapid casting technology (RCT). RCT is a systems approach to manufacture sand molds and cores without the requirement to manufacture a pattern or series of patterns. This paper discusses RCT from a systems perspective, the available equipment and underlying processes and materials, and concludes by highlighting various applications. Author: Daniel Maas, PrMetal Division, Extrude Hone Corporation, Irwin, PA.
