Quality Investment Castings
for a wide variety of OEM markets

Investment casting has, with no doubt, earned it's place in manufacturing. The lost-wax process has proven to be a cost effective way to produce metal components. Parts can be reduced in weight, tolerances of 0.010" or 0.13mm per inch held, The average micro finish is 125 rms, with the range for the process being between 60 and 120, depending upon the limitations of the metal, and expenses and time involving machining and finishing reduced or eliminated. 

Our commitment is to produce high quality castings. It takes a well planned facility, the right equipment, and well trained people dedicated to quality to achieve consistent results.  It can be always told in our final product. The lost-wax process provides unique opportunities for engineers and designers. Intricate structures can be created with minimum or no secondary machining operations.

Investment Casting Process


 
Wax which conforms to complex cavities and intricate exteriors is injected into precisely tooled dies which, while accounting for both wax expansion and metal contraction, yield finished tolerances of ?.0057.

The resulting wax patterns are assembled on a tree, or sprue, which provides the gates through which the molten metal will be poured.


 

 
The tree is dipped repeatedly into ceramic investment, strong enough to handle molten metal but pourous enough to allow air to escape, thus preventing voids.

After the wax is burned out of the ceramic mold, hence the term "lost wax," molten metal is poured into the resulting pattern at up to 3,000F.


 

 
The heat of the casting alters the ceramic chemistry so the mold crumbles away after cooling. Gates are then cut off and the part is cleaned.

Finished parts are checked for allowable tolerances. Non-destructive testing, X-ray, magnetic particle and penetrating dye inspections are available.

 


 

Final Quality Inspection: Specialized technician examines dimensions, hardness and microstructure by hardness test, tensile test, & impact test to ensure quality conformance to specification. Material Certificate & Inspection Report is issued accordingly.
