Reverse Engineer Compressor Pump Castings with 43 Week Reduction in Lead Time and 40% Cost Savings
OEM 的报价为 $29,562/个，研发时间为 51 周。
美国海军水下作战中心 – 基波特 (NUWC) 了解到俄亥俄级潜艇需要使用真空锥铸件。它们的供应系统中没有这类铸件。OEM 的报价为 $29,562/个，研发时间为 51 周。
The final castings were delivered to NUWC Keyport in 8 weeks for a cost of only $18,200 each. NUWC Keyport reverse engineered the castings in order to create 3D CAD files, which were used to print a sand mold package with the ExOne digital part materialization process.
ExOne’s Competitive Advantage
Additive manufacturing offers significantly shorter lead times and reduced component cost.
ExOne additive manufacturing technology uses threedimensional printing to create complex molds and cores directly from 3D CAD data for a variety of industries, with accuracies of ± 0.011 in. or ± 0.3mm. The ExOne process achieves geometric complexity and scale unmatched using conventional casting techniques. The process produces accurate, uniform cores and molds rapidly, significantly reducing lead times.
