(  Humtown Products now possesses the only 3D sand printer in Ohio, a $1 million ExOne S-Max that was unveiled at the company’s new Agile Casting Solutions 3D mold manufacturing facility. The printer was procured with an Ohio Third Frontier grant given to YSU and America Makes, and will be used to support Ohio’s metal casting industry.
The new facility will also serve as a laboratory and classroom for engineering students from YSU and other colleges and universities around Northeast Ohio. The 2,800-square-foot, humidity- and climate-controlled facility also houses office space and a 40-seat, auditorium-style training room that will host a 3D Printing Optimization Course taught by the American Foundry Society, which is collaborating with YSU, America Makes, the Youngstown Business Incubator, and the University of Northern Iowa to bring additive manufacturing to the forefront of the metal casting industry.
