Investment Casting or Metal Injection Molding

Sep 20, 2022

When manufacturers are deciding whether to use investment casting or metal injection molding, they often go with investment casting because of the advantages it offers. Investment casting can use a wider variety of alloys and typically achieves better results related to the hardness, density, tensile strength, elongation, and other properties of the finished parts. The near-net-shape process ensures consistent quality and repeatability over very long runs. This significantly reduces the number of out-of-spec and faulty parts, saving time, money, and production hassles.
