The benefits of choosing investment casting

precision (17)

Benefit 1: Castings with complex shapes can be produced

 

Investment casting offers exceptional design flexibility, and complex, precision parts can be cast into near-finished shapes. It offers virtually unlimited degrees of freedom in terms of investment casting materials. Wide adaptability, not limited by casting size, thickness, and shape complexity.

 

We can also cast symbolic features such as logos, names, or numbers directly onto the product. In addition, Rolls-Royce’s complex car logo is also produced by precision casting.

 

Benefit 2: Can be produced with various materials

 

Various materials can be used for investment casting. These materials include stainless steel, carbon steel, low-carbon alloy steel, copper, aluminum, iron, cobalt, etc. Therefore, castings produced by the investment casting process can be used in various industries.

 

Benefit 3: It has a wide range of applications

 

Investment casting can be applied in various industries. Primarily used in aerospace, power generation, firearms, automotive, military, commercial, food service, gas and oil, and energy industries. Therefore, it can be said that no matter what industry you are in, if your business can benefit from the advantages of investment casting parts and components, they may be the perfect metal choice for all your projects.

 

Benefit 4: Tight Tolerances

 

How precisely do your dimensions need to be? Precision casting has tighter tolerances, enabling tight dimensional tolerances as low as +- 0.2 mm, resulting in high precision castings.

 

Benefit 5: Good surface finish

 

The investment casting process provides a superior surface treatment. The amount of secondary processing required and the associated time and costs are reduced. This is sometimes important to avoid machining or other finishing operations. And it can also cast complex words or trademarks on the outside of the product, reducing the later laser marking and lettering.

 

Benefit 6: Accelerate production speed and reduce production cycle

 

Investment casting can reduce labor time and lead time because it greatly reduces the amount of processing after casting. At the same time, investment casting can deliver a large number of products within one delivery cycle, and this advantage helps customers compete in the market.

 

Benefit 7: Can be mass-produced

 

The investment casting process can be used to produce small and large batches of components. It offers very reliable technology and low-cost repeat operations.

 

Benefit 8: Competitive Manufacturing Costs

 

Compared to other processes, investment casting molds are much less expensive to set up, which keeps costs low. Not only that, the near-net shape of investment casting requires little machining, which minimizes material waste and reduces energy, material consumption, and tooling costs. The initial investment in product development is minimal. Therefore, the manufacturing cost is very competitive.

 

Benefit 9: Reduce casting defects, high yield

 

Precision casting can provide high-quality products and reduce casting defects. We can provide reliable process control with a much lower scrap rate than sand casting.

 

Benefit 10: Wide range of sizes

 

Investment casting allows for both large and small castings. Complex miniature parts can be cast as small as 30g or less, and large parts weighing up to 50kg can be cast.
