The many challenges of producing parts for nautical equipment make investment casting the right choice for maritime applications. The punishing conditions of maritime industries include hard usage, very corrosive seawater and other issues that make ordinary standards, materials and processes inadequate for at-sea applications.
Investment casting can accommodate specialized alloys needed to produce precision cast parts that can withstand the extraordinary challenges of maritime conditions and usage. Custom alloys can be used to achieve the exact characteristics needed to endure the marine environment. In addition, investment casting’s near-net-shape process offers economy because it virtually eliminates costly finishing work and materials waste.
