EXHIBITORHighlights Paramelt, Booth 212


Paramelt, founded in 1898, is the world’s largest manufacturer of waxes for the precision investment casting industry. Around the globe, customers use our advanced products and application expertise to ensure their continued success and growth in this very competitive sector. Our technical sales team has an unparalleled range of industry experience and has a proven track record in supporting all aspects of the investment casting process. We operate from three sites in the USA, one in the Netherlands, one in the UK and one in China, working together to consistently deliver quality products and effective technical support. Please stop by our booth during the 66th Annual


Technical Conference and Expo and take the opportunity to speak with one of our experts about the latest in product and process developments. Our R&D engineers continue to make significant advances in the fundamentals of filled and non-filled pattern wax technology, so be sure to hear firsthand how we can help you to improve your productivity and optimize process costs.


3D Systems Enables Tool-less, Digital Production of


Casting Patterns, Booth 239 3D Systems’ tool-less digital man- ufacturing solutions have changed the landscape of investment casting. Found- ries are now able to 3D print high quality wax and resin casting patterns in hours - allowing high complexity metal part production at significantly lower costs. Giving rise to the Digital Foundry, 3D Systems’ technology will yield compet- itive advantages for those adopting digi- tal processes, including improved time- to-market and creation of parts with more complex geometries than possible with traditional injection tooling. Creating casting patterns using 3D printing is a technique that was pio- neered by 3D Systems in the mid-1990s. The QuickCast® methodology enables rapid creation of patterns via Stereoli- thography (SLA). The lightweight, hol- low pattern build style with hexagonal internal supports can be produced with-

out the time and cost needed for tooling. SLA QuickCast patterns have been


recognized as the leading type of addi- tively manufactured patterns ever since. A number of factors are increasing in- terest in using printed patterns for low- to medium-volume production includ- ing increasing demand for fast turn on casting orders, and increasing interest in “un-moldable” geometries generated by topology optimization programs. Solutions


the Digital Found-


ry also include wax patterns, with 3D Systems’ ProJet® MJP 2500 IC that en- ables tool-less production of 3D printed casting patterns for customized metal components, bridge manufacturing and low volume production. MultiJet printed patterns meet tight tolerances and drop directly into the casting process which makes them ideal for complex precision metal component manufacturing.


3D Systems also offers wax and res- in casting patterns through its On De- mand services, with the power to 3D print casting patterns with online order- ing 24/7, supported by its team of ex- perts and application engineers. For more information or to receive a quote, visit www.3dsystems.com.
