Stainless Steel Investment Casting
Investment casting is a process for creating metal parts that were originally developed for making parts for aircraft during World War II. Today, we process our investment casting in many different metal castings, including investment castings for aerospace and automotive. Our investment casting is dominated by metals like aluminum, magnesium, and brass, but stainless steel is often overlooked. We offer this great service because versatile metal is growing in popularity every day. Our investment casting is often used for decorative, functional, and cost-effective applications of stainless steel. It’s the best deal for our customers because of its great benefits.
Industries That Use Stainless Steel Investment Castings
Our Stainless steel investment castings are used to produce metal items used in many industries such as automotive, food processing, and aerospace. Our investment castings allow us to create a wide range of metal items suitable for various applications. Stainless steel investment castings technology has been used to build surgical implants, hip replacement devices, prosthetic joints, and dental implants.
Stainless steel investment castings define the list of industries that utilize stainless steel investment castings, including:
*Food processing equipment
Benefits of Stainless Steel Investment Castings
Our Stainless steel investment castings offer many benefits over conventional casting. These benefits are what make stainless steel investment castings so useful, especially in industries like aerospace, automotive, defense, and medical devices. Our production of investment castings often requires the use of stainless steel because of the corrosion resistance and hardness of stainless steel.
Today, investment castings play a huge part in our everyday lives. Investment casting is the process of making metal components by pouring metal into a mold or shell and allowing it to solidify. Once the metal hardens, it is then removed. The mold is then cleaned of excess metal, and the casting is then machined, sanded, and primed. Our Stainless steel investment castings are a popular choice for automotive parts, especially for engines. We produce parts that are difficult to manufacture using other techniques, making us ideal for producing high-quality, precision parts.
How Does the Investment Casting Work?
Investment casting, also known as a lost wax casting, is a manufacturing technique used to create many different parts and products. It’s one of the oldest casting techniques. Still, we use it today, and like most of the casting (and manufacturing) processes, it’s been used for years.
Investment casting is the process of pouring liquid metal into a mold and then removing the mold. This liquid metal can be almost any metal, including bronze, copper, and steel. The process can be used to create everything from jewelry, car parts, metal sculptures, and architectural elements. The process involves melting down the metal and pouring it into a mold.
The mold can be rubber or plaster that acts as a negative to the positive shape of the object. Once the mold has hardened, the liquid metal is poured in, and the mold is then cooled. This allows the metal to solidify, and when cooled, the mold is separated from the metal (often by sawing off the mold), and the metal can be recycled or melted down to make new products.
We use stainless steel for bearing surfaces, structural material, and electrical and mechanical parts. While investment castings have been around for a while, we are making a push to improve the services and products we offer.
