Parts, equipment and components utilized in maritime industries encounter uncommon challenges. Highly corrosive seawater, hard usage and other punishing conditions can make standard materials and processes insufficient. Precision cast parts made through the investment casting process can utilize specialized alloys that can withstand the rigorous challenges of maritime conditions and usage far better than other options. Alloys can be custom made to exhibit the exact properties that are needed. Investment casting’s near-net-shape process also virtually eliminates costly finishing, making it economical, as well.
