How Metso Outotec Manufacturers Molding Tooling with BigRep Large-Format 3D Printers



Historically, when people talked about foundries, implementing new technologies is not something they usually mention.  However, the scene is changing as foundries invest more and more into new technologies to stand out in the market.  This is exactly what Metso Outotec did as they implemented large-format 3D printing.

Metso Outotec is a leader in sustainable minerals processing technologies, end-to-end solutions and services globally.  In order to stay ahead of the competition and continually innovate, Metso implemented large-format 3D printing to produce their core boxes and loose parts and improve their production process .  Thanks to their BigRep 3D printers, Metso has radically reduced their dependence on CNC machining and realized a cost reduction of 55%.

Hear from Patricia Moraes, Global Project Engineer at Metso, as she talks about how the BigRep PRO and BigRep ONE are helping Metso 3D print the customized profile and share standard part resulting in cost reduction in tooling.


  • How METSO implemented large-format 3D Printing into their manufacturing processes
  • Differences between creating core boxes the conventional method vs. additive manufacturing
  • Best practices to save up to 70% of costs when creating mold patterns
  • Benefits of using 3D printing including weight savings, lean labor, and machine efficiency
