Case study #1
Metal rapid protocasting with disposable mold for medical sector

From the 3D project of the customer is realized
a sand mold which is cast the aluminum alloy desired

Rapid protocasting with disposable mold for medical sector


This technique ensures fast implementation ranging from 7 to 14 days, depending on the complexity of the project.


It uses the same aluminum alloy melt in series


You can also do mechanical tooling on the prototype as well as leak testing and other pre-processing, verifying the quality of the project.

Protocasting Process

  • Analysis of 3D mathematical model (feasibility study, construction drafts casting systems and simulation)
  • Modeling of tool with parametric 3D CAD
  • Printing sampleswith 3D printing machine (high-speed complex shapes are obtained, even in the undercut, made in sand croning that can be employed in the foundry)
  • Casting, deburring and sandblasting
  • Any subsequent machining

Benefits for the research and development department

  • Quickly evaluate metal part design
  • Saving time and money
  • Produce metal prototypes in almost any metal material
  • Allow testing of the part in the actual production materials
  • Produce metal parts without expensive tooling
  • Reduce sampling time
  • Reduce lead time
