Tony Badamo, President, Hazleton Casting Company and Weatherly Casting and Machine Company, Weatherly, PA is pleased to announce the opening of the Hazleton Casting Center for Additive Manufacturing (HCC-AM). At the center of HCC-AM operations is a Viridis 3D RAM123 robotic 3D sand printer. This exciting technology can take a CAD file and create molds and cores literally in hours, without the need for hard tooling. Combining additive manufacturing with predictive simulation software creates unparalleled flexibility in foundry operations. Molds and cores produced through additive methods can now be designed with little or no regard for the constraints of traditional foundry methods.
