The part to be manufactured is dissected into layer via software and is built sequentially layer by layer. Each layer can be built at a different thickness depending on topography needs. Typical layer thickness ranges between 0.5-6 mm.

ABOUT ADDITIVE CASTING
“The tested sample showed relatively
good metallurcal integrity without
noticeable evident to layer bonding
trace or defects…
The tested samples showed
relatively low casting defects”
Ben Gurion University of the Negev
Once the part is fully built, the ceramic shell is removed using shaker or waterjets, or by dissolving the ceramic in a proprietary developed solution. Additive casting enables a full process done in a completely enclosed and protected environment, that does require any manual labor or has any environmental impact.
REMOVING THE SHELL
CASTING THE 1ST LAYER
The first layer of liquid metal is being poured automatically into the boundary created by the ceramic fence. The liquid metal is filling up the cavities .
The liquid metal is being introduced via a proprietary deposition head designed and patented by the company. The process is repeated until the part is done.
