INVESTMENT CASTING ADVANTAGES
WHY IS INVESTMENT CASTING RIGHT FOR YOU?
There are many types of manufacturing processes available, components can be cast using various methods and even machined from solid blocks of material. With so many production methods to choose from, why is the Investment Casting manufacturing process the right process for you?
Investment Casting has many benefits, all of which ensuring that your finished components meet all of your requirements. If you require any of the following, Investment Casting may be the production method for you:
FREEDOM OF DESIGN
One of the key benefits of investment castings is freedom of design. Unlike other casting processes, Investment Casting allows complex parts and components with complex internal designs to be cast. Thin wall sections (just 1.5mm thick in Aluminium components and 2.5mm thick in Steel components) and features such as ‘undercuts’ can be cast with ease, making the process ideal for producing components that have to meet weight requirements. The tooling process associated with Investment Casting means that designs do not have to be altered to incorporate draft angles and taper – not only maintaining design integrity, but also saving time and alteration costs. The process is ideal for creating castings with complex internal detail, and other features such as: cooling fins, cooling pips, PCB guides, sealing grooves, fine detail and lettering.
