HOW HUMTOWN HELPED SOLVE A FOUNDRY’S LABOR SHORTAGE
HOW HUMTOWN’S TWO PROCESSES HELPED MEET PRODUCTION GOALS
HOW HUMTOWN’S EMERGENCY RESOURCING SAVED THE DAY
Manufacturing & 3D Sand Printing
Sometimes when time is of the essence, we can utilize conventional manufacturing and 3D sand printing in what we call the Dual Path. While tooling is being made, Humtown Additive can 3D print toolingless sand cores and molds, eliminating unwanted lead time. Once tooling is completed, Humtown Products can manufacture the sand cores and molds conventionally, saving money. This gives foundries and OEMs the best of both worlds.
