Lead Times

Our focus on providing the highest level of customer service possible means that we will strive to meet production requirement times where possible.

Manufacturing to such high standards takes time. However, our focus on providing the highest level of customer service possible to our clients means that we will strive to meet production requirement times where possible.

Our lead times for investment castings are very competitive, not only because of our experience, which over time has helped us to refine the Investment Casting process, but also our other in house capabilities. We can complete most commissions in a closed loop system, meaning our production is not subject to 3rd party service provider production times and freight. In the instances where our investment castings have to leave our site to undergo specific specialist treatments, we use a series of trusted partners that believe in delivering the same high standards that we do – and like us – they aim to do this in the quickest possible times.  

Production times are dependent on part complexity and are therefore different for each casting. Despite this, our experience allows us to provide you with an accurate estimation for production times.

Our typical lead times are as follows: 

ProcessGeneral Lead Time
Tooling2 to 6 weeks
Sample production3 to 6 weeks
Completing repeat orders8 to 12 weeks
Machining and finishing3 to 6 weeks
Rapid prototyping3 to 5 weeks
