Steel Investment Casting
Steel investment castings are very good candidates for off shore sourcing, since labor represents the primary savings in off shore production. Investment casting, precision investment casting, also known as “lost wax casting” is a very efficient process to manufacture intricate and metallurgical accurate parts. Steel investment castings are more expensive than parts made by other castings methods due to the labor intensive process. However, this method still offers a much more economical method to achieve a finished component than machining intricate complex shapes from bar stock, forgings, or even castings made with other casting processes.
Stainless steel and steel alloys are the most common investment castings. However, investment castings can also be made with aluminum, brass, and other alloys. This casting process will produce near net shape parts. The investment casting process provides a visually attractive part that will need very little secondary machining or finishing to complete.
