Why Choose 3-D Sand Printing to Make Your Next Pump Component
1. Time Saved
Within two weeks of submitting a product order to Hoosier Pattern a sand mold of a pump part has been made and ready to ship to the customer’s preferred foundry. No time will be wasted waiting on foundries to make changes to account for changes. Hoosier Pattern uses the latest technology from the start so castings can be made quicker and products can reach customers sooner.
Have a complex pump? Hoosier Pattern makes the promise to its customers that there will be no extra charge for complex pump geometries. Extra costs take place when customers want next day service. We have the resources to make that happen for our customers but it will result in a slight upcharge.
3. Detailed Designs
There is no need to sacrifice design for manufacturability when working with Hoosier Pattern. Complex core designs are 3D printed as one piece, thus reducing or eliminating assembly errors and foundry casting defects. No internal fins or mismatches. Foundry molds 3D printed do not need traditional parting lines and flask sizes. This gives the foundry the freedom to the gate, add risers and feed the casting in the best possible way to produce the optimal casting. The freedom of pump design combined with the freedom allows the foundry to manufacture a pump component casting and it is a huge advancement for the pump industry. Complex pump component castings produced quickly and at a known cost is why pump manufacturers are turning to 3D printing as the solution to pump casting problems.
Most lead times are 10 business days but can be expedited for an additional fee.
If we do not have to clean the core and can print the part in a printed box and you can extract the part, the cost is $0.11/cubic inch with a normal lead time of 1 week. Hoosier Pattern does have a minimum printing charge of $450 and packaging material and shipping is an additional charge.
