More sustainable 3D printing of cores is now possible with binder jet printing of inorganic binder. The topic of sustainable manufacturing is increasingly the focus of governments, regulations and within industry itself. Now, binder jet sand 3D printing with inorganic binders opens new opportunities to produce sand cores in a resource-friendly way. Foundries and other companies, such as those in the automotive industry, can now pursue a more ecologically conscious approach, while tapping all the benefits of sand 3D printing for complex part production.
This masterclass is brought to you by the global leaders in intelligent energy management, GridBeyond. The VP of North America, Wayne Muncaster, will present to you the ways that metal manufacturing businesses, like yours, can use energy management as a gateway to enhanced revenues and savings. Within this presentation, you will learn:
• How to uncover flexibility in your energy use without impacting operations
• Where the opportunities lie for businesses like yours
• How the energy markets are changing and what that means for you
• What technology is available and how it works
• How much your business could both earn and save through the energy markets
Approximately 20,000 foundries worldwide produce cast iron. The exact chemical composition of the alloy being manufactured needs to be checked throughout the melt process to ensure the quality of the finished product meets specification. OES technology is primed to deliver accurate and reliable one-step quality control throughout the process. A Hitachi High-Tech Application representative explains how this can be achieved.
When people think of jobs in metalcasting they might think of pouring metal but there is much more to it than that. The industry has career paths in everything from engineering to sales to business management and offers well-paying jobs for post-college and post-high school graduates. It supports careers in metalcasting facilities as well as in companies that support the industry through the supply of equipment, raw materials and services.
