You need a highly accurate, intricate shape: Investment casting manufacturers achieve tolerances of 0.05 percent of the length. For small dimensions, tolerances of 0.15 percent are possible. A metal or alloy is difficult to fabricate or machine: Many metals are great for casting, including bronzes, aluminum alloys, stainless steels, tool steels, Stellite, Hastelloy, and precious metals.
You need a part you can’t manufacture using traditional techniques: Steel investment casting is ideal for making airplane components or complex turbine blades that must withstand extreme temperatures and conditions.
Creating safety-critical applications: Because of the incredible accuracy awarded by investment casting, many of ours are used in critical automotive applications. We must carefully control malleability, tensile strength, and metallurgy.
