Investment casting in machinery field
Modern investment casting is a mechanized, industrialized process that is capable of producing precise, accurate units with tight tolerances, thinner walls, and smooth surface finishes.
Ideal Metals for Investment Casting
- Carbon steel casting.
- Alloy steel casting (steel with additional alloying elements)
- Aluminum casting
- Copper steel casting
- Stainless steel casting
The machinery industry relies heavily on modern investment casting. Unlike older lost wax casting techniques, the specialized components produced with the investment casting methods of today can withstand high temperatures without losing their efficiency.
Examples of investment cast parts for the machinery industry include:
- Food machinery parts
- Agricultural machinery parts
- Mining machinery parts
In addition, precision castings are widely used in aerospace, hardware tools, and medical instruments
