Making the Unmakeable

Combining Additive Manufacturing with Metal Casting Processes

The convergence of generative design, additive manufacturing, and metal casting has the possibility to rewrite the rules of lightweighting in dozens of applications in aerospace, automotive, medical devices and other industries. Generative design eliminates excess material in unexpected ways. Casting lets manufacturers use proven production techniques to manufacture higher volumes of parts. And additive manufacturing is the bridge between these two worlds, helping foundries cut costs in unexpected ways and produce high-performance parts out of a wide variety of materials.

These techniques are pushing AM beyond prototyping, making mass manufacturing a realistic goal for even the most complex geometries.
