Investment Casting Characteristic #5 – Elimination of Material Waste

Oct 31, 2017


Investment casting utilizes a near-net-shape process, which greatly contributes to the elimination of material waste. In this process, molten metal is poured into molds that are almost exactly the size and shape of the desired parts. This reduces or eliminates the need to machine and finish parts – a process which produces material waste that adds to the cost and environmental concerns. In addition to producing higher quality more economical parts, investment casting helps promote sustainability.
