When to Choose Investment Casting vs. Green Sand Casting

May 1, 2018

There are many processes for producing cast parts including, investment casting and sand casting. Investment casting is likely the right choice when the parts have complex geometries that can be better achieved through near-net-shape casting. It can produce thinner walls and finer finishes with minimal or no finishing and machining. In addition, investment casting can be more economical and deliver a better ROI when long, repeat runs of castings are required.
