Custom Investment casting delivers highly precise metal parts holding tight tolerances down to ±0.005 in., even on intricate shapes.
Thin walls, complex contours and internal features are possible thanks to the "lost wax" molding process.
Investment cast parts have an excellent surface finish and do not require secondary machining or polishing.
Nearly any ferrous or non-ferrous alloy, including exotic alloys, can be used for investment casting.
The reusable ceramic mold process ensures excellent consistency and repeatability.
Our investment casting delivers high precision metal components with your choice of surface finishes like as-cast, painted, plated, polished, coated and more to meet application requirements.
