Z Corp. forms metal casting network

13 Jan, 2004

(01/14/2004) Z Corp.’s new Metal Casting Program establishes a network of its customers, pattern makers, and foundries that prototype metal parts. Z Corp.’s Zcast technology prints metal casting molds directly from digital data. The company says this cuts the time needed to produce a casting from weeks to days. The technology can also be used to create patterns for sand casting and investment casting. The Metal Casting Program certifies foundries and pattern shops equipped to use Zcast technology. The program is also open to those who use traditional metal casting processes. Twenty foundries are currently registered.
