The Laempe Core Printer (LCP) is an in-house developed machine for inorganic binder systems.
Laempe Mössner Sinto GmbH showed off its complete portfolio of solutions for core-making technology at GIFA 2023. Laempe offers a wide range of products from the design to the construction of turnkey plants: core shooters, including gassing units, core sand mixers, automation, and robotics solutions as well as automated visual and quality inspections. In addition to core shooters, Laempe offers products and solutions along the entire value chain, including an internally developed sand binder jetting 3D printer.
The Laempe Core Printer (LCP) is a machine for inorganic binder systems. With the 3D printer, developed in-house, a solution in the field of additive manufacturing has now been added Laempe’s product portfolio. Laempe is thus strengthening its claim as a global full-range supplier and technology leader in core manufacturing.

“Foundries worldwide are facing major challenges. Conservation of resources, material availability, energy efficiency, transformation of the automotive industry and shortage of skilled workers are just a few buzzwords. Laempe offers solutions for all these challenges, and this is exactly what we showed at GIFA 2023. With its global presence and innovative portfolio, Laempe has a unique selling point in the industry,” explained André Klimm, Managing Director of Laempe Mössner Sinto.
At GIFA 2023, Laempe Mössner Sinto also presented some of the special features of its own 3D printer, which, with a multitude of advantages, has been specially developed for the additive manufacturing of complex cores. Recently, the first six 3D printers have been delivered and are now in use at one of the world’s largest car manufacturers.
Laempe showed off its sand binder jetting 3D printer at GIFA 2023, the Laempe Core Printer (LCP), a machine for inorganic binder systems: “Laempe has expanded in the field of additive manufacturing in recent years and now has a market-leading product from its own development. With the 3D printer, Laempe Mössner Sinto is expanding its range of products and offering its customers an innovative solution that will help to successfully shape the transformation in the foundry industry,” Klimm continued.
Laempe Mössner Sinto also had on display their Laempe Digital Cockpit software. The Laempe Digital Cockpit aids foundries in tracking production reports, availability, monitoring, shift book, mixer data, and cycle monitoring, to improve process efficiency and resource savings
Laempe first introduced its own 3D printing process at GIFA in 2019. Known as the LCP (Laempe Core Printer) the in-house developed machine for inorganic binder systems features a much higher printing speed than previously available on the market.
“The feedback on our 3D printing solution was consistently positive and the printer met with great interest.”
With the Laempe Core Printer (LCP), the company has its own development for the binder jetting process in its program. In contrast to conventional powder bed printers, this uses a sand-binder mixture. According to Laempe, the LCP is characterised by a significantly higher printing speed than is usual on the market.
