Obsolete Replacement Part Delivered in Two Weeks with Digital Casting

Speed 3D Mold uses ExOne binder jetting to provide a replacement casting

Binder jet 3D printing enables to production of a legacy diesel engine cylinder head replacement casting without tooling

Speed 3D Mold was hired by a local shipyard company to cast a replacement cylinder head from the engine of one of its cargo boats. Over a decade old, the part was no longer offered by the OEM and traditional tooling came with a 10-month lead time. With the ExOne S-Max 3D printer, Speed 3D mold delivered a replacement casting without tooling within weeks.

The nearly 100 kg replacement cylinder head was cast in gray iron and delivered in just two weeks.In this case study, you'll learn how Speed 3D Mold used sand binder jetting for:

  • Reverse engineering services to create replacement castings of obsoleted components from digital scans and sand 3D printing
  • Direct production of molds and cores from CAD files without tooling 
  • Cost savings of up to 40% compared to traditional tooling capital investments
