Description

Stainless Steel Investment Casting Manifold Exhaust, from Idea to the Markets.


The investment casting is also called precision casting because it have much better surface and higher accuracy than any other casting process. Especially for the silica sol casting process, the finished castings could reach the CT3 ~ CT5 in geometrical casting tolerance and CT4 ~ CT6 in dimensional casting tolerance. For the casings produced by investment, there will be less or even no need to make the machining processes. To some extent, the investment casting could replace the rough machining process. 

Why Is Lost Wax Casting Called Investment Casting? 
The investment casting gets its name because the patterns (wax replicas) is invested with the surrounded refractory materials during casting process. The "invested" here means being surrounded. The wax replicas should be invested (surrounded) by the refractory mateials to withstand the high temperature of the flowing molten metals during casting.


Almost most of the ferrous and non ferrous metal and alloys could be cast by investment casting process. But, at our lost wax casting foundry, we mainly cast nickel base alloys, cobalt base alloys, carbon steel, alloy steel, stainless steel, super duplex stainless steel, gray cast iron, ductile cast iron, aluminium alloys and brass. Additionally, certain applications require the use of specialized other alloys used primarily in harsh environments. These alloys, such as Titanium and Vanadium, meet the additional demands that might not be achieved with standard Aluminum alloys. For example, Titanium alloys often are used to produce turbine blades and vanes for aerospace engines. Cobalt-base and Nickel-base alloys (with a variety of secondary elements added to achieve specific strength-strength, corrosion-strength and temperature-resistant properties), are additional types of cast metals.
