What is Stainless Steel Investment Casting?
Stainless steel investment castings are components manufactured through the investment casting process.
The process begins with a wax model created using a 3D CAD model. The wax patterns are then used to make ceramic molds. This mold is used to produce stainless steel investment castings.
Which Industries Use Stainless Steel Investment Casting?
Stainless steel investment casting can produce fine surface finishes, complex shapes, high levels of detail and corrosion resistance. These capabilities are essential for many industries, including:
- • Aerospace
- • car
- • food processing
- • Desalination plants
- • Pump manufacturers
- • Machinery manufacturers
- • medical
- • Mining
- • petrochemical
- • Agriculture
- • vitality
What are the commonly used investment castings?
You can use the investment casting process to produce turbine blades, medical devices, golf club heads, gears, pulleys, valve components, door handles, medical tools and equipment, automotive parts, transmission housings, automotive cylinder heads, cylinder cases, pipes , tubes, components, and many other machine parts – anything with complex geometries can benefit from this technology.
