Investment casting, also known as lost-wax casting, is a versatile process that can be used to cast a wide variety of metals.
Investment casting can be used to cast a range of steel alloys, includingcarbon steel, stainless steel, and high-alloy steels. These metals are commonly used in various applications, like aerospace, automotive, and industrial.
Aluminum alloys can also be used in investment casting. It’s lightweight and excellent strength-to-weight ratios entitle them the advantage in casting parts applied to automotive and aerospace.
Copper alloys, such as brass and bronze, can also be cast in investment casting. These metals are often used in decorative and artistic applications, as well as in electrical and plumbing components.
Magnesium is also a good choice in investment casting for its lightweight and good mechanical properties. Magnesium casting parts are often used in automotive and aerospace applications.
Titanium alloysare also widely used in investment castings due too it excellent strength-to-weight ratios and corrosion resistance. Titanium is commonly used in aerospace, medical, and industrial applications.
Nickel-based alloys, which offer excellent corrosion resistance and high-temperature performance, is popular in investment casting services. These alloys are often used in aerospace, power generation, and chemical processing applications.
Investment casting, also known as lost-wax casting, is a process used to create metal parts with complex geometries and fine details.
The first step in the investment casting process is to create a pattern of the part to be cast. The pattern can be made from a variety of materials, including wax, plastic, or metal. The pattern is created using a mold or a computer-aided design (CAD) program.
Once the pattern is created, it is used to create a mold. The mold is made by coating the pattern with a ceramic shell or investment. The investment is allowed to dry and harden, creating a shell around the pattern.
After the ceramic shell has hardened, the pattern is removed from the mold. This leaves a cavity in the shape of the pattern. The cavity is then filled with wax to create a wax pattern of the final part.
The wax patterns are then attached to a wax tree, which is used to support the patterns during the casting process. The wax tree is then dipped into a ceramic slurry and coated with a fine sand or refractory material to create a shell.
The ceramic shell is then heated in a furnace to remove the wax from the mold. This is called the burnout process and it leaves a cavity in the ceramic shell where the wax pattern used to be.
The ceramic shell is then filled with molten metal using a variety of methods, including gravity pouring, vacuum casting, or pressure casting. The metal is allowed to cool and solidify, taking on the shape of the ceramic shell.
