WOBURN, Mass., Aug. 8, 2016 ‐ Viridis3D, a supplier of additive manufacturing technology for making sand molds and cores for foundry applications, has teamed up with Palmer Manufacturing and Trident Alloys to provide live demonstrations of its new robotic 3D printing technology. Customers from the United States, Canada and Mexico attended the first demonstration events held in June and August, and were shown the speed and flexibility that the RAM123 printers bring to the foundry industry.

Three more events will be held on Sept. 14, Oct. 6, and Nov. 9. Each session will run from 9a.m. to 1 p.m. Attendees will receive an hour‐long live machine demonstration, a foundry tour,and an offsite Q&A at a nearby conference center.

Trident Alloys, a jobbing foundry in Springfield, Mass., purchased a Viridis3D RAM123 printer in 2015, and has added 3D printed sand molds as a quick turn service for making production sand castings. The company has produced castings for existing customers, ranging from prototype, production, and legacy spare parts. Jim Galaska, owner of Trident Alloys, said he was "surprised at the new business that we are getting through word of mouth, before we even started advertising."

Will Shambley, Co‐founder of Viridis3D, and Jack Palmer, President of Palmer Manufacturing & Supply, will lead the live demonstrations showing how the company makes cores and molds with the robotic 3D printing technology and discuss how Trident Alloys is using the technology in everyday production.

"These demonstrations show just how revolutionary and disruptive 3D printing technology is for the foundry industry," Shambley said. "We have a great product that is already making production sand castings."

Palmer added, "The Viridis3D technology is amazingly simple, rugged, and affordable. Its ability to achieve excellent surface finish with accurate tolerances sets itself apart from anything else on the market today."

Space is limited in each session. For more details and to register, visit www.palmermfg.com/reservation.html.

New Universal Molding Machine Uses Existing Tooling For Faster & Flexible Production

Palmer Manufacturing & Supply, Inc., introduced at CastExpo 2016 a Universal Molding Machine (UMM) – a revolutionary molding concept that uses either existing green sand or No-Bake tooling.

The UMM was developed in response to the typical jobbing foundry environment where production is variable and quantities can range from a few pieces to thousands. And, tooling is often a combination of new, old, cope/drag, matchplate, green sand, No-Bake, shell, metal, wood, or plastic.

The Palmer UMM was designed to be a high production molding system that could make No-Bake molds using any tooling with minimal set-up, minimal tooling modifications, and unskilled laborers.

“The ability to accept either green sand or No-Bake tooling is an innovation that allows any modern jobbing metalcasting foundry to be flexible with their production and more efficient,” said Jack Palmer, president of Palmer Manufacturing & Supply.

How it Works
The UMM tooling frames were designed to accept cope / drag No-Bake boxes where they are mounted back to back and run matchplate style, as well as any type or size of green sand tooling. Green sand matchplates only need a simple 2x wooden box mounted to both sides and then fastened to the tooling frame, and No-Bake cope and drag boxes are simply mounted to the tooling frame as is.

High Production Rates – NO ROLLOVER NEEDED!
Production rates up to 20 molds per hour with the 2-station UMM are easily achieved with one operator. Up to 65 molds per hour with the 6-station UMM are achieved with 2–3 operators – all without a rollover. Because the pattern is inverted automatically and drawn onto a precision scissors lift, a rollover isn't necessary and any amount of daylight is available at no additional expense.

Capacities
UMM 1, 2, 4, and 6-stations with capacities from 12x12 4/4 to 60x60 36/36 are available.

Palmer Installs Viridis3D RAM10™ 3D Printer Test Stand for Materials Development

Palmer recently installed the new Viridis3D RAM10™ 3D Printer Materials Development Test Stand for binder research. "It was extremely easy and fast to get the RAM10™ up and running.  With a little guidance from Viridis3D, we had a new ink working in just a few days," said Strausbaugh.

The new RAM10™ Materials Development Kit is very simple in construction and has very fast test cycle times with a small build volume and includes: fluids manifold, electronics, and spreader bars. The RAM10™ uses ViriPrint™, which is the same software as the production printers.

According to Viridis3D CTO, Jim Bredt, "Viridis3D has taken a very different tactic from the older large format printer manufacturers. The RAM10™ 3D Printer Development Kit allows users to change powder, binder, firing parameters, tubing, and powder deposition subsystems — enabling distributed development of new materials sets. The similarities allow scale-up to the larger systems to be as seamless as possible.”

"We're very eager to see the products that come out of the academic and industrial sectors as they start to use this materials development system," said Will Shambley, President of Viridis3D. We're hoping that by making this easy-to-use development kit, that we will be able to create a thriving development community around the bigger production RAM printers."

Palmer Manufacturing & Viridis3D Announce Partnership for Robotic 3D Printing System for Metalcasting

SPRINGFIELD, OH, and WOBURN, MA – Palmer Manufacturing & Supply, Inc., and Viridis3D, LLC, announced a partnership to distribute and manufacture a complete Robotic 3D Printer System for all foundries in North and South America.

Viridis3D has developed a Robotic 3D Printer that uses less material and is substantially less expensive that other 3D printers on the market today. "This printer currently has "patents pending" and is a game-changer in terms of producing only what you need – only when you need it," according to William Shambley, President of Viridis3D. "We are proud to have developed the first robotic sand based system to take a CAD file to print a mold and core and have a casting in literally a few hours," added Shambley.

Foundries will appreciate both the speed with which the system prints molds and cores and how fast their operation can be up and running. Our software is so easy to use – you simply "press print." We have partnered with Palmer due to their expertise in providing heavy-duty peripherals to complete the system. Additionally, ABB, a world leader with international sales/service, is our robot partner.

"Robotic 3D Printing truly defines lean manufacturing," said Jack Palmer, President of Palmer Manufacturing & Supply.  This technology brings a new way of production – instead of shipping castings around the world; raw materials are shipped and files are simply transmitted to 3D printers in strategic locations. The result is castings are poured the same day, only where you need them.

"This is a flexible and efficient production system unlike anything we have ever seen before – it is truly revolutionary. Palmer is pleased to bring the heavy-duty mixers, powder feeders, system controls, and other peripherals to this system," he added.

Viridis3D & Palmer are accepting a limited number of foundries for beta sites. To be considered, please go to the application form.

  • Both versions of the Palmer CM-Series CoreMakers™ are available with RFID tagging that saves the settings – program it once & forget it.

CM-Series CoreMaker™ with RFID

  • Increase jobbing productivity – with single or dual operator stations.
  • Easy positioning – with the laser alignment guide.
  • Keep the operators working – let the RFID system change settings between different boxes.
  • Programmable blow pressure - easily fine tune each core.
  • Make Cores and Molds in One Machine!
  • Heavy duty Clamping Table & Cylinders
  • Full PLC controls of any continuous or batch mixer
  • Sizes:
    • CM-25 up to 30 lbs. per blow
    • CM-50 up to 85 lbs. per blow
    • CM-100 up to 120 lbs. per blow
    • CM-300 up to 350 lbs. per blow
