Regardless of complexity, almost any part can be produced as a one-piece configuration, which are inherently strong in all directions.

By utilizing the inherent strength of a casting, the overall weight of many parts can be significantly reduced.

Investment castings can readily achieve surface finishes of 125 RMS.

Many part features which are especially difficult to machine, such as cams, grooves, bosses, holes and slots, can be readily produced by the Investment Casting Process.

The right selection of alloys will provide maximum corrosion resistance.

Heat-resistant alloys are readily cast for high-temperature applications.

The structure of our cast alloys is such that, if proper techniques are used, they can be brazed or welded if required for final assembly.

Coring of internal configuration not possible with other manufacturing processes are readily cast in the investment casting process.

A thin wall capability and stronger and lighter weight alloys to achieve the same part properties are available through investment castings.

Investment castings are produced from over 150 air melt ferrous alloys, non-ferrous alloys and specific grades of Ductile Iron.

Unlike other manufacturing processes, which require draft angles to produce parts, investment castings can eliminate draft angles.

With investment casting’s ceramic shell molds, you can switch from one metal to another (ferrous or non-ferrous) and back again, keeping in mind some dimensional variances may occur.

Since investment castings minimize machining, you can upgrade materials to attain higher mechanical properties and stronger parts.
