Technical Presentation Evening – Rapid Sand Casting in South Africa

Date: 14 November 2023
Venue: Reading Country Club
Time: 18:00 – 19:00

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:
