Machining Parts Reduced with Investment Casting

Aug 4, 2015

Investment casting reduces the need for machining parts compared to most other processes because it produces near-net-shape castings. Molds used in this precision parts casting process achieve dimensions that are very close the final specifications of parts. High-quality finishes can be achieved and there is less need to grind off extraneous metal. When comparing production costs using different processes, reduced machining should be taken into account.
