Printed Mold Casting of a Component for the Medical Industry

Peridot was contracted by a customer in the medical industry to develop and prototype the chair support unit highlighted here, to function as a structural component in a medical device for functional, durability, and UL testing. The foundry tooling was designed and finalized, and state of the art sand printing machinery was employed for a developed printed sand molding process. Ductile iron was carefully poured into the created mold to manufacture the unit. CNC machining processes were performed on the net shaped component for precision detailing and high level finishing. A tight tolerance of ± 0.030” was maintained throughout. The part was fully tested for accuracy and integrity with visual, dimensional, and metallurgical inspections.

Overall dimensions of the completed part were 24” in length, 12” in width, 6” in height with a casting weight of 22 lbs. 20 units were produced for this prototype run, completed in a turnaround time of 4 weeks. Peridot has the capabilities to perform a number of proto-functional processes, determined according to project objectives and product parameters. For more information about this chair support printed mold casting, or the other prototype and production capabilities available please see the table below or contact Peridot directly.
