Customer Story

A journey into 3D printed castings

How can 3D printing be integrated into a foundry? UK foundry Brafe Engineering uses both 3D sand and PMMA printing for sand and investment casting, and has been able to generate more than 20% of its sales from 3D printing in recent years. In particular, the company relies on specialty sands such as Cerabeads for core printing to combine with conventionally manufactured molds.

In this webinar, Adam Dalby, Managing Director at Brafe Engineering will showcase their journey into 3D printing, the growth in applications for 3D sand printing, and how the foundry has seen sales increasing from 3D printing despite Covid.
