Investment Casting Process
The ‘Investment Casting Process’ generally involves pouring molten metal or alloy into a specially shaped mold and then cooling and solidifying the mold to create a casting. This method is frequently used in the production of parts with complex geometries and applications requiring high precision. Here are the basic stages of the investment casting process:
- Mold Preparation: The first step is to prepare a mold according to the design of the part to be cast and use a special ceramic mixture to coat the inner surface of the mold.
- Wax Model Production: The second step involves creating a wax model of the part, which has the same shape as the ceramic coating. This wax model will be placed inside the mold during the casting process.
- Pouring into Mold: The third step is placing the wax model inside the mold and pouring the molten metal or alloy into the mold.
- Cooling and Solidification: The poured metal or alloy cools and solidifies inside the mold, resulting in the final part.
- Mold Breaking: The final step is breaking the mold and removing the finished part. The wax model is also melted or removed at this stage.
Investment casting is a method that provides high precision in the production of complex and finely detailed parts. Therefore, it is used in various sectors including automotive, aerospace, medical, defense industries, and many others.
