Investment Casting for Small Run

Jun 15, 2023

Investment casting offers the best cost per part on long and repeat runs, but in many cases manufacturers have found that investment casting for small runs can also deliver excellent value. While the per-part cost may be a bit higher, the process makes up for it in several ways. It produces extremely accurate, high-quality parts that can perform better than parts from other production methods. As a near-net-shape process, investment casting eliminates or significantly reduces the need for machining and finishing work, saving time and money. Taking into account long-term considerations and indirect costs, investment casting may be just what you need for a short casting run.
