Hoosier Pattern's commitment to the Decatur/North Adams community is an on-going endeavor and we recently worked with staff and students of Bellmont High School's Manufacturing Program.HPI created 3-D sand molds which the students then poured aluminum casts of. They made of a video of the process which you can see here.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rrCHuvrqRdkH
Many thanks to Catherine Sondgerath and her students at Bellmont High School.
Hoosier Pattern was recognized on Foundrymag.com unvieling the purchase of their new S-Max™ 3-D sandprinter. The article gives great insight into the new world of 3-D printing. Though the Stock photo only shows one job box, Hoosier's double job box set up increases production and ensures customers recieve orders in shorter lead times. Hoosier has also opted for the larger print head decreasing print time making over night printing a viable option. HPI prides itself in being one of the first in the world to offer foundry grade printed sand with ExOne's process. Be sure to check out what the S-Max™ has to offer by clicking here.
We're very excited about the newest machine in our shop — an ExOne 3D sand printer! It allows us to rapidly prototype very complex parts, and deliver in a matter of days rather than months. Check out this video we made for more details!
We're excited about our new ExOne sand printer — so much so, in fact, we put it on our truck!
If you see this beauty out and about, be sure to wave hello to Eunice, our driver!
