Dear members of Industry,

The South African Institute of Foundrymen would like to invite to a technical presentation sponsored and hosted by the University of Johannesburg.

The technical presentation will focus on the rapid sand casting process in South Africa. The latter integrates traditional moulding techniques with additive manufacturing, specifically the binder-jetting process. The primary goal of the technical presentation is to disseminate the research currently conducted in this scientific field in South Africa and to highlight the advantages of rapid sand casting for the local foundry industry. 

Prof Didier Nyembwe, and his postgraduate students from the University of Johannesburg will conduct this technical SAIF evening.

Hosted and Sponsored by:

Topics of discussion:

  • Rapid Sand Casting
  • Localisation of silica sand for 3DP applications
  • Characterisation of Chromite sand for 3DP applications
  • Study of resin Coated Chromite sand for 3DP applications
  • Mechanical Recycling of 3D printed used sand
  • Recycling of 3DP sand by mixing
  • Thermal recycling of 3DP used sand
  • Financial feasibility of Rapid Sand Casting in SA
  • Qualification of Rapid sand Casting for High Tech applications
  • Special properties of chromite sand for 3DP applications

RSVP: Please contact Marina on Tel:011 559-6455 or Email:[email protected]

It would be greatly appreciated if you could confirm your attendance for catering purposes by no later than Friday, 10 November 2023.

We look forward to your attendance.
