Investment Casting or Die Casting

Dec 7, 2022

One of the decisions manufacturers may need to make is choosing between Investment Casting and Die Casting. While both have their benefits and applications, investment casting is often the better option. Here’s why:

Long-Term Cost Effectiveness – a smart investment for long and repeat runs

Superior Surface Finishes – can achieve excellent finishes with little or no machining

Exceptional Precision – can accommodate complex designs and geometries

Flexibility – excellent for ferrous and non-ferrous metals, as well as many different alloys

Exacting Tolerances – can meet even the most challenging requirements

These and other characteristics make investment casting the superior choice over die casting in many situations. Foundry professions can help make the final decision.
