Investment Casting vs Sand Casting Tolerances

Oct 1, 2019

When it comes to parts tolerances, investment casting is typically far superior to sand casting. In many cases, investment casting tolerances are close to 40% better. This dimension accuracy can be a crucial success factor in the performance and life of precision cast parts. Investment casting’s near-net-shape process enables the foundry to achieve significantly better quality and more precise specifications, which is vitally important for many different industrial and commercial components. These better tolerances can be achieved at a competitive cost over the long term.
