Subtractive Manufacturing in the casting domain involves machining of solid sand blocks to form a mold or manufacturing patterns to make molds. Depending on the volume requirement sand molds can be milled for small quantities or bigger molds. Higher volume requirements can be met by conventional molding through patterns.

Mold Milling

Considering the time constraints in rapid Prototype development where a single piece or small batch is required, the hybrid manufacturing process is adopted, where the Molds are Directly Milled and Cores are 3D Sand Printed. This provides cost effective and timely solutions especially for larger Prototypes.

Pattern Making

Magna Digitech’s expertise in designing and manufacturing over 4000+ castings has given us the in-depth experience for pattern designing, this includes draft angles, shrinkage allowances etc. Our FlexiCAM 3D Router (2000×3000 mm) gives us the ability to quickly manufacture the patterns in-house with great accuracy and fidelity.

3d printing

The parts are printed directly by our Bound Metal Deposition printer layer by layer, which involves extrusion of bound metal rods. This ensures production of parts with quick development time, assuring design freedom.


Sintering causes the metal particles to densify thereby creating a solid structure  the part is heated to temperatures near melting, the remaining binder is removed and metal particles fuse together causing the part to densify up to 98%. The parts are now ready to use..


The part is then immersed in debinding fluid, dissolving primary binder and creating an open-pore channel structure throughout the part, preparing it for sintering.

Part Design

Based on the inputs from the 3D model, various design aspects like thickness, tolerances, metal characteristics are analyzed & the files for metal printing are prepared through Studio System Software generating supports and control parameters .


Magna Digitech’s finishing services includes Hand finishing, Grit blasting, Shotblasting, Vibropolishing, REM’s  ISF® (Isotropic Super Finishing) process.
