Precision Casting From a Time-Honored Investment Casting Process
The investment casting process can be used on castings up to 250lbs. First, a wax injection machine creates a wax pattern or prototype. Rapid prototypes can also be used which involves having a pattern created from a CAD drawing through building a tool! Prototypes or waxes are then assembled onto a sprue which carries the pattern through the remainder of the process. Next, successive layers of ceramic and stucco are applied to form a hard shell. The molds are then heated to remove wax and placed into a sand bed. From there, molten metal is poured into the hollow mold.
Finally, the ceramic shell is broken off and the castings are cut away, heat treated and perfected to meet customer specifications. This method ensures each part meets the products' dimensional tolerances. (Watch a video of the lost wax casting process.)
