Additive Technologies Ltd. develops and produces 3D printing systems for layer-by-layer building of three-dimensional products from powder materials such as quartz casting sand, silicate casting sand, ceramic powder, powdered polyamide and is an expert in 3D printing.
Our additive systems allow to obtain products of high complexity and any configuration for industrial applications in such inductries as: aerospace, automotive, engineering etc.
Additive Technologies Ltd. provides services in 3D modeling, reverse engineering, mold design and 3D printing.
Sand-polymer 3D printing systems
Printing systems are especially designed for moulds production by "layer-by-layer" printing method. Compared with the traditional technology, the printing of a mold on a three-dimensional printer allows you to reduce the time and cost of the process in many times and opens up the possibility of producing parts of any complexity.
Customers using our printing systems benefit from a higher performance and better product properties at lower cost (several times less than analogues). Developed by our team uniqe sand-polymer mixture manufacturing technology, head and mechanical control unit designed in our laboratories and own software provide this cost advantage. The printing system consists 90% from domestic components that allow us to dramaticaly reduce production costs.
The molds produced on our equipment meet all required standards. Using domestic sands and chemistry we are able to achieve the lowest moulds production cost that one can ever get. The cost of the forms produced on our equipment is several times less than that one can get on analogue equipment.
Advantages of 3D printing
The existing methods of complex casting molds production (curved configuration, internal cavities, a large number of unique cross-sections in different planes) are expensive and take a lot of time. This problem becomes especially urgent when a large number of iterations associated with casting are required.
3D printing technology makes it possible to produce forms of unlimited complexity for the building of products from aluminium and magnesium alloys, steels and cast irons, copper and bronze, as well as internal rods for use in chill rigs. At the same time, due to the fact that the technology is based on the traditional HTS process, the integration of technology into the production process is not difficult.
The moulds production by using a 3D printing system allows to reduce the technological chain by refusing the following operations: making a master model from metal or composite materials, manufacturing a gating system, molding the mold parts (installing the master model and gating system into the casting box and backfilling with a mixture). This dramatically reduces the production time and cost.
