For years sand casting has been the status quo for creating shaped components out of metal or steel. However, there has always been one technique that can allow you to create more complex structures with much thinner walls. This technique is known as investment casting or lost wax casting. Through the proper mechanisms and with the right manufacturer by your side you can actually use investment casting to elevate your products and make them appear more interesting and of better quality.
So, how does investment casting work?
Investment casting is a multi-step process that begins with the creation of the right mould for your products. At first, the design will need to be formed into a wax model. Once the wax model and tree are fully formed, it is time for the ceramic layers to be constructed around them. This fireproof ceramic sale, which is created through frequent submersions of the mould into ceramic sand will allow the creation of the autoclave. The wax will be completely melted out and you will be left with a mould that represents the complex shape you are trying to create.
