Investment Casting Printers

Wax 3D Printing enable foundries to build production-grade investment casting patterns quickly and cost-effectively. Making the transition from an "analog" to "digital" workflow 3D patterns printing is very easy today with the advance materials and methodologies for scalable printing of 100% wax investment casting patterns. 3D Wax Printing solutions offer a profitable way for foundries to achieve production-grade casted parts faster and more affordably than ever before, with zero tooling. Eliminating the need for tooling brings a new agility and cost-effectiveness to investment casting pattern production and enable higher performing, more complex parts for casting in production volumes.

Benefits of Wax 3D Printing - "Digital" Foundries

  • Complex, performance-optimized casting patterns seamlessly integrate into existing workflow

  • Flexibility to modify or change pattern design at any time without lost time or tooling investment

  • Plug-and-play printer operability—no technical expertise required

  • Scalable to mid-volume production with the ability to increase productivity using additional printers

  • Dramatically Reduce Lead Times and Gain Design Flexibility

  • 3D printed investment casting patterns offer an affordable way to create complex cast parts in production volumes.

Shifting from tooling to a digital 3D printing solutions help foundries to:

  • Eliminate tooling storage and maintenance costs

  • Improve customer response times

  • Optimise cast part designs and performance

  • Deliver premium, accelerated service

Developed for the investment casting professional, the ProJet MJP 2500 IC wax 3D printer produces hundreds of wax patterns at a significantly lower cost and in less time than traditional pattern production for low to medium-volume jobs.

Delivering quality, accuracy and repeatability, it generates wax patterns that fit in existing investment casting processes, making it ideal for customised metal components, bridge manufacturing and low volume production.
