Renaissance Services is excited to be a part of the Military Additive Manufacturing Summit & Technology Showcase in Tampa January 16 – 17, 2024. The Summit & Showcase is the nation’s largest military, aerospace and defense 3D-printing event. The Summit & Showcase provides an opportunity for military, government, and industry professionals to connect, collaborate, and develop methods for building and keeping the weapons and equipment America’s military people need to stay on top the best they can obtain and maintain. Renaissance Services Inc. (RSI) will have an exhibit booth at the Summit & Showcase displaying the company’s latest 3D-printed ceramic tooling and process aids.

When the Department of Defense has a need for legacy replacement parts that lack any technical documentation, the Renaissance Services team uses scanning technologies and their engineering expertise to create complete MIL-STD-31000 technical data packages. The RSI team then uses the ceramic additive manufacturing expertise of their PERFECT-3D division to 3D-print the tooling and process aids to make the cast parts.

The Renaissance Services team’s processes and products have been key to enabling foundries to deliver parts of complex geometries to customers much more quickly.

The RSI team can make short runs of legacy parts readily. They are also great at aiding in manufacturing parts for newer aircraft and other military applications.

Additive manufacturing can deliver high-quality ceramic molds for casting metal parts. Renaissance Services’ PERFECT-3D technicians 3D-print these high-quality ceramic molds and related tools for making castings of parts, instead of 3D-printing the parts directly.

This saves having to qualify an additive-manufactured metal part from scratch. Also, a 3D-printed metal part doesn’t have the strength of a cast metal part. Instead, the 3D-printing makes the molds and tools, which don’t have to have the strength of a metal part to cast them.

In the absence of a drawing package for a part needing low-run manufacturing, the Renaissance Services team can use structured light scanning to dimension an existing part, generate a drawing package, and design and make molds and related tools needed to make castings.

If the Renaissance Services team has access to a drawing package, they will simply convert the existing drawings for use in designing and making the molds and related tools needed to make castings.

Foundries can use Renaissance Services ceramic molds and related tools to cast the parts. Manufacturers can then machine the castings, finish them, and install parts in them as needed to make the castings into finished parts.
