Lost foam casting is a less polluting process than traditional foundry casting processes. It is more energy efficient as it eliminates most if not all machining, allows the consolidation of multiple parts, and permits designs not otherwise feasible. We have developed and are commercializing this process in steel including low carbon steel and stainless grades.

We have developed technology to create ductile iron as thin as 0.060". Since ductile iron and austemperted ductile iron are stronger, this means you can go thinner in designs and in fact it can mean a lower total weight as compared to aluminum. If you are skeptical, please refer to our recent paper where we were invited speakers at the MS&T conference on Light Metals. "Lightweight Designs: A Balance of Density, Material Properties, Processing Capabilities, and Cost" http://www.programmaster.org/PM/PM.nsf/ApprovedAbstracts/D8267AF7B0EEC5CF852580F40005F32C?OpenDocument

3D printing has many benefits including eliminating long lead times for tooling, the need for huge batches and thus the need to move things. However, for metals there are still many limitations that remain including inconsistent or poor properties, a lack of scalability, limited metals which have to be shipped huge distances to just name a few. Our process combines the best of 3D printing with foundry technologies. We 3D print a polymer shell made of PLA (a biodegradable plastic made from corn or other renewable). Then we pour molten metal on it vaporizing the form and leaving an exact replica. In trials so far we have been successful in steel and irons, but this technology is in its infancy.
