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.
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
