Franklin Bronze has acquired a Laser SLA 3D Printer for rapid prototyping and to make short runs of investment cast parts.

‘The addition of this 3D printer to our facility allows us to quickly prove out design changes without needing to alter the tooling each time,’ said Neil Kruse, senior process engineer. ‘For instance, making a gating change can be proved before cutting into the tool. We are looking forward to working on trials and iterations for new and existing parts with our customers in a more efficient manner. Additionally, working with customers that have an intricately designed part.’
