Break the mold. Eliminate the limitations of traditional metal casting methods.
Traditional casting methods require the production of a pattern used to create the mold. The creation of the pattern adds time and cost to the casting process, making it difficult for engineers to obtain fast-turnaround metal prototypes.
Z Solution 3D Printers are capable of directly printing mold cavities and inserts using ZCast powder, a plaster-ceramic composite appropriate for metal casting. The molds are used in the casting of non-ferrous metals.
Zcast technology provides:
- The ability to quickly prototype metal parts by directly printing molds and mold inserts.
- The elimination of costly pattern and tool production for prototype casting.
- A dramatic time and cost savings in the production of near-net shape castings.
- A fast and inexpensive alternative for sand casting, die casting, and investment casting.
