Z Corporation (Burlington, MA) has launched a metal casting program to develop relationships with metal casting foundries throughout North America. The program establishes a network of Z Corporation customers, pattern makers, and foundries who are involved in the prototyping of metal parts. The program springs from the company's ZCastô technology, which involves printing metal casting molds directly from digital data. The process drastically reduces the time it takes to produce a casting from weeks to days. The technology can be used to create patterns for the sand casting or investment casting of metal parts.
