GIFA2023 digital casting innovation highlights: An award-winning research project of topology optimization enhancement with sand 3D printing from the teams at Maschinenfabrik Liezen und Gießerei, OGI, and ExOne. With sand 3D printing, the weight of these spring cups could be reduced by 21% with proven unchanged strength and identical function.
The freedom of design in 3D printing enables new complex shapes of the spring cup core packages - contributing to weight reduction. The lightweight construction not only saves on emissions associated with the ongoing operation, but also contributes to a reduction of CO2 emissions, raw materials, and the required energy in its entirety to 15% even during the manufacturing process.
