On April 22, 2015, Danko Arlington presented “The Use of Additive Manufacturing in the Sand Foundry” at the 2015 Additive Manufacturing Users Group held at the Hyatt Regency Riverfront Hotel in Jacksonville, FL.
The recent advances in 3-D metal printing were noticeable in this year’s conference. Soon manufacturers will be able to procure and afford additive metal objects in compliance with accepted commercial and military standards.
These new technologies may eventually replace the millennia-old art of metal casting. If Danko Arlington is to remain a valuable casting supplier in the next-generation marketplace, 3-D metal printing is the logical next step in our company’s future as well.
In the interim, Danko Arlington will continue to bridge the gap by educating today’s engineers about the century-proven sand casting process with the use of 3-D printed foundry tooling, molds, state-of-the-art CAD design, casting simulation, and reverse engineering.
