Green Sand Formula – How to Make Molding Sand

You know about green sand, but how is it made? According to Instructables: Step 1: Digging Clay “Buy or dig some clay. I couldn’t find any clay (except fire clay) in the nearby shop and even in the big supermarket. Clay is a thing, which is not use during building, and redecoration works now. Of […]

Additive Outlook – What’s Ahead for 3D Printing in 2021 & 2025

What is in the future for 3D Printing? According to Industry Week: “It’s clear that 2020 was a pivotal year for additive manufacturing, in part because of the meaningful role it played helping bring manufacturers into the fray as healthcare providers scrambled for PPE. “As a continuation of the virtual roundtable with additive manufacturing industry […]

Key Additive Manufacturing Trends to Watch in 2021

What does 2021 hold for key additive manufacturing? Consider this. According to Plastics Technology: “In 2019, I asked several additive manufacturing providers for their predictions and trends in 2020. Well, no one could have foreseen what would take place that year. But one of the key predictions—additive goes mainstream—did come to play in a big […]

Casting

New to casting? Consider this. According to Britannica: “Casting consists of pouring molten metal into a mold, where it solidifies into the shape of the mold. The process was well established in the Bronze Age (beginning c. 3000 BC), when it was used to form most of the bronze pieces now found in museums. It […]
