Metal casting may be one of the oldest manufacturing methods used to create metal parts, but it is also yet another sector that can benefit from 3D printing. With the high costs involved in producing tooling aids like moulds, cores and patterns, 3D printing is already proving to be a worthwhile alternative to the conventional production of tooling for metal casting processes. Foundries are therefore increasingly adopting 3D printing into their workflows as a means of remaining competitive.    Overcoming existing limitations Foundries rely on several metal casting processes, with die casting, sand ...
