The casting industry is in a state of upheaval. The ability to produce ever more complex shapes, volatile quantities and short delivery times are becoming increasingly important factors for success in competition. Even in the age of digitalization, the world is not binary. voxeljet is focusing here on the intelligent fusion of classic foundry technologies with flexible additive production processes. For sustained optimization and increased efficiency across the entire value-added chain in production. With Universal Binder Jetting 3D printing technology and the tool-free production of sand molds and cores for classic metal casting processes, we are opening up new horizons for the foundry industry. Without restrictions in terms of individualization, lightweight construction and demanding or complex geometries. And not to forget with a great potential for cost optimization in the manufacturing process.
