Sand casting is the process of metal casting using sand as the mold material. The resulting mold cavity is used to create finished metal parts. The production of sand molds and cast metal parts is relatively straightforward and suitable for automated methods. However, fabrication of the patterns used to produce the sand molds (typically CNC machining) is often difficult, time-consuming and expensive.
Prototyping and low-volume production of LSR parts are typically handled with manual casting methods, using molds made of metal, RTV or modeling board. However, these kinds of molds can be time and labor intensive to produce and pose limitations on the complexity of the mold.

The webinar will report on the most comprehensive research to date about hotel social media. Social media plays an ever-increasing role in a hotel’s business; therefore, it is necessary for hoteliers to understand its use and impact. The research study was conducted by Bjorn Hanson, clinical professor, Tisch Center for Hospitality and Tourism at New York University, and Donna Quadri-Felitti, director and associate professor, School of Hospitality Management at Penn State University. Their study findings were based on responses of U.S. Hoteliers, just like you, and include investment, staffing, objectives, room nights generated, and differences and trends by location, size of hotel, franchised/managed and other attributes.
Right-sizing your fleet is more complicated than just slashing fleet size and requiring remaining vehicles to do more. But getting it right is worth the effort. With fleet management expert Matt Mikkelson, you’ll learn how a fleet management solution can help you improve fleet efficiency and lower costs. Join Networkfleet’s live webinar, “Five smart ways to help boost fleet utilization,” on September 22, 2016.
Learn how to access the potential ROI of 3D printing and justify the cost of a machine with profit gains from 3D printing manufacturing aids. Increasing the number of manufacturing tools like jigs, fixtures, organizational aids, improves efficiency, capacity, unit cost and responsiveness. Using additive manufacturing (3D printing) to produce these tools makes them more accessible and quicker to implement.
Manufacturing relies on aids and tools, including jigs, fixtures, templates and gauges to maintain quality and production efficiency. By using FDM 3D Printing technology to produce jigs and fixtures, the traditional fabrication process is substantially simplified; tool-making becomes less expensive and time consuming. As a result, manufacturers realize immediate improvements in productivity, efficiency and quality.
