TEI elected to make the part in a fully 3-D printed rapid prototype mold for multiple reasons.


Accessories Plate for Power Generators


Tooling & Equipment International


(Livonia, Michigan) T e accessories plate integrates the


internal cooling and air management of the engine, along with providing mounting surfaces and precise geom- etry for the fuel system and the external accessory drives. All of this is achieved in a single casting with complex inter- nal cores and external machining. TEI was contracted to cast and machine a number of prototype components including the accessories plate. TEI elected to make the part in


a fully 3-D printed rapid prototype mold for multiple reasons. One was the speed of manufacture, which took just nine days from the start of engineering to the fi rst casting. No investment in tooling was necessary. Design fl exibility gave the customer freedom to revise the design. Finally, with a highly complex gating strategy, a solidifi cation analysis determined the gating would need complex geometry, something 3-D printing would accommodate.
