When choosing a partner to produce your parts, it should have essential foundry capabilities, including investment casting expertise. While the investment casting process may seem straightforward at first glance, it is actually quite complex and nuanced. Each step in the process requires careful planning, monitoring, and execution. It is essential that foundry staff have the technical knowledge to ensure that the process is optimized and that all specifications are achieved. It starts with the design and engineering of the tooling and continues through producing the right alloys, creating the molds, pouring the molten alloys, performing finishing work, and many other aspects of the investment casting process.
