Avoid Casting Defects

Investment casting can produce an extremely broad range of top quality parts, but it requires expertise and care to avoid casting defects. This is because investment casting is far more complex than it appears on the surface. In addition to mastering the science and metallurgy of investment casting, the foundry team must have process expertise and extensive experience to avoid such common defects as poor surface finish, porosity, incomplete casting, distortion, casting voids, and many more. Do your background research and choose your foundry carefully.
