Description

OEM Custom or Standarized Stainless Steel Precision Lost Wax Casting Camlock

Investment (lost wax) casting is a method of precision casting complex near-net-shape details using replication of wax patterns. Investment casting or lost wax is a metal forming process that typically uses a wax pattern surrounded by a ceramic shell to make a ceramic mold. When the shell dries, the wax is melted away, leaving only the mold. Then the casting component is formed by pouring molten metal into the ceramic mold.


The process is suitable for repeatable production of net shape components from a variety of different metals and high performance alloys. Although generally used for small castings, this process has been used to produce complete aircraft door frames, with steel castings of up to 500 kgs and aluminium castings of up to 50 kgs. Compared to other casting processes such as die casting or sand casting, it can be an expensive process. However, the components that can be produced using investment casting can incorporate intricate contours, and in most cases the components are cast near net shape, so require little or no rework once cast.

Silica sol casting process is the main steel investment casting process of RMC investment casting foundry. We have been developing new technology of adhesive material to achieve much more economical and effective adhesive material to build the slurry shell. It is a overwhelming trend that Silica sol casting process replaces the rough inferior water glass process, especially for stainless steel casting and alloy steel casting. Besides the innovated molding material, the silica sol casting process has also being innovated to much steadier and less heat expanding.


CF8M is a cast austenitic stainless steel which covered by ASTM A351, ASTM A743 and ASTM A744 standard. CF8M equal to SS 316/F 316 and Chinese Standard 0Cr17Ni12Mo2. CF8M is a molybdenum bearing modification of CF8 alloy and is the cast equivalent of wrought AISI 316 Stainless steel.

CF8M is defined in ASMT A351, ASMT A743 and ASTM A744, which is for casting purpose only. SS 316 is defined in ASTM A240 and ASTM A276, it's for plate, sheet, strip or stainless steel bars. Another grade is named as F316, which is from ASTM A182 for forged parts only. TP316 will be found in ATSTM A376 for pipe only. The main applications of CF8M cast stainless steel cover: impellors, propellers, pump casings, valve bodies and press plates.
