Case Study 3

Client: Getrag Ford Transmissions

The Brief:

To produce 2 prototype gearbox castings machined and ready for assembly and test by the client.

CNC machined prototype extension housing

The Solution:

Using the clients 3D CAD data SLS models were printed of the gearbox housing. Following a comprehensive CMM (Co-ordinated Measuring Machine) check to confirm dimensions the rapid prototype models were used to make ceramic moulds from which the prototype gearboxes could be cast in aluminium.

The castings were then CNC machined from the clients 3D CAD model.
