Abstract

The Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) seeks to drastically reduce costs and increase availability of cast parts.To this end, Triton Systems proposes to develop an innovative method for the fabrication of low cost manufacturing of ceramic cores and molds.Traditionally, ceramic molds and cores are expensive and have long lead times, but Triton proposes to develop the materials and methods to use Ceramic Additive Manufacturing to lower the costs and lead times.In Phase I, Triton will determine the scientific, technical, and commercial feasibility of developing the appropriate materials and method to create inexpensive and quick ceramic forms for investment metal casting.In Phase II, Triton will further develop prototypes of the method designed in Phase I.This will include modeling and production of various metal forms using ceramic molds and cores created using the additive manufacturing method.
