Investment Casting Improves Quality

Jun 2, 2021

For many parts and applications, investment casting improves quality over other processes. This is largely attributable to the “near-net-shape” process investment casting utilizes. Extremely accurate tooling creates wax patterns that form ceramic shells which can achieve even the most challenging specifications. Molten alloys are poured into these molds, allowing the metal to duplicate the original prototype with accuracy other processes are typically unable to match. In addition, investment casting can produce exceptional surface finish quality that tends to have fewer defects and flaws. The outcome is the quality many manufacturers require.
