Consistency of Investment Casting

For a wide array of industries and applications, the extremely high level of consistency of investment casting is an important advantage. As a near-net-shape process, investment casting produces parts that match or are very close the customer’s final specifications. That means that very little, and often times, no machining and finishing work is necessary. The result is a very low occurrence of inaccurate or inconsistent parts. While consistency can be critical for any run of parts, it is especially important for long and medium runs, where even a small percentage of inconsistencies can add up to many unusable components and higher costs.
