Foundry Lab casting metal parts for power management company Eaton

Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

Digital metal casting firm Foundry Lab is collaborating with global power management company Eaton. Harnessing the speed of microwave and additive manufacturing, Foundry Lab was able to cast parts for Eaton in weeks, not months. Eaton leveraged the Digital Metal Casting System to cast aluminium parts that include stainless steel pins, a technological advancement that is not possible with traditional 3D printing, placing Foundry Lab’s technology at the forefront of innovation.

This milestone highlights the flexibility of Foundry Lab’s casting technology and the success of their recent United States expansion. Eaton was an early member of Foundry Lab’s evaluation program, giving them a preview of the technology.

“Eaton is often faced with the challenge of applying AM to legacy applications because changing the process and/or material is too big of an engineering hurdle,” says Cameron Peahl, Additive Manufacturing Manager at Eaton’s Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence, “In this example, Foundry Lab’s technology provides a solution for us to leverage the speed and agility of additive while maintaining the conventional casting method and material, even including the cast-in-place steel pin. This is a huge step forward in our AM journey.”

“Working with Eaton to produce these parts has been an incredible opportunity. It is an exemplary showcase of what our system can achieve,” says David Moodie, Founder and CEO of Foundry Lab. “Eaton’s application was typical of the pain that industry is currently facing. Many components can’t be 3D printed and are prohibitively expensive and slow to cast with traditional methods. This is the problem that our technology is here to fix.”

This news comes in the wake of many recent initiatives and accomplishments of the company, including:

  • Foundry Lab is accepting orders for their Digital Metal Casting system at Formnext in Frankfurt 7-10th November
  • Recent US expansion including opening a state of the art demonstration centre in Fremont California
  • Development of their Evaluation Program, enabling potential customers to witness the technology before it is publicly available
