Digital Metal Casting

Delivering Where 3D Printing Can't

From Design to Metal Parts in One Day

DMC - Office System

The DMC - Office System is a hardware + software product that delivers same-day production

of metal parts - directly from your CAD file.

This is not metal 3D printing - we call it Digital Metal Casting

 

This approach enables a hands-free metal casting equivalent – without pouring molten metal

Digital Metal Casting leapfrogs 3D metal printing to rapidly produce fully dense metal parts with the same physical properties as traditional cast metal.

Why?

3DP-Icon.png
3D Printing

3D printers are slow and expensive.

 

They require specialized expertise to operate and maintain.

Materials are expensive and options are limited.

Despite the design freedoms, 3D printing is not ideal for 99% of metal parts.

CNC-Icon.png
CNC Machining

CNC machining is a subtractive process - most of your material ends up on the shop floor.

 

Despite advances, CNC will always have limitations to the shapes it can produce.

 

Is great for a one-off.... but 2 parts takes twice as long and costs twice as much.

Metal Casting

This is an ideal mass manufacturing approach, but high setup costs mean that you can't use it for anything less than thousands of parts.

Outsourcing castings to a foundry can mean weeks-long delays in the development cycle. 

Most foundries won't do short run production as it's not cost-effective. 

Digital Metal Casting is better because ...
