How Hetitec became scandinavians fastest foundry

To produce machined castings within a matter of days sounds like fiction to you? Hetitec Oy, a foundry based in Finnland found a way to accomplish this by building a foundry around a 3D printed. The company started as a service bureau for 3D printed sand molds and cores. In 2021 Hetitec decided to invest into a VX2000 and state of the art foundry equipment.

Today, Hetitec is able to produce cast parts of up to 600kg within a matter of days. In this webinar, Hetitecs CEO Ville Moilanen will walk you through the story, how his company became one of Scandinavias fastest foundries.

Our Speaker

Ville Moilanen, CEO, Hetitec

In 2008, Ville Moilanen joined what was then voxeljet technology GmbH in Augsburg as a mechanical engineer ans sales manager for. In 2012 he decided to move back to Finland to start his own business with Hetitec Oy. Equipped with a VX1000 from voxeljet he printed furan molds for customers on demand. For several years, Hetitec pursued this business model until 2018, when Hetitec decided to scale up, expand and transform the business model into a highly specialized foundry. To increase productivity, Hetitec added a VX2000 into its production with the unique idea: let’s build a foundry around the 3D printer and not just include a 3D printer in a foundry.  All with a clear focus: to become one of the fastest foundries in Europe.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • how 3D printing can save you up to 75% in costs, lead time and assembly times
  • why hetitec decided to build a foundry around a 3D printer and not the other way round
  • how modern tools like casting simulation and 3D-modeling can speed up your workflows
  • what geometric advantages 3D printing offers for highly complex elements
  • all about the multimaterial casting options at Hetitec Oy and it's applications
