German automotive manufacturer needed a way to quickly and economically produce complex prototypes
Achieving Faster Castings with Lower Costs
Premier auto manufacturer saved over 50% in costs and gained flexibility for casting design changes.
Printed sand parts to form a complete package for creating castings.
ExOne Competitive Advantage
Additive manufacturing offers shorter lead times, accommodates changes in design rapidly and enables product design improvements at a reduced cost.
ExOne's digital printing process offered significant time and cost advantages over both conventional and other additive technologies for castings.
ExOne digital part materialization uses three-dimensional printing to create complex molds and cores directly from 3D CADdata 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.
