Process Step 7 – Investment Casting Finishing

Jan 24, 2017


The castings are now ready for any finishing work that is required. One of the biggest advantages of the investment casting process is that it produces “near-net-shape” parts that typically need little or no finishing work. This saves time, reduces cost, expedites production and increases the consistency of the castings. If finishing work is required, it usually involves removal of excess metal, polishing the surfaces, heat treating and other such processes.
