Precision casting can be used for a range of products and materials. Depending on a site's casting facilities, products can weigh as little as a fraction of an ounce and upwards of 1,000 lbs. Ceramic investment molds are also suitable for high-temperature pours. Common materials used in precision casting include steels and other alloys based on iron, aluminum, nickel, cobalt, titanium and copper. Read more about iron and steel.
Depending on the application, precision casting can be suitable for both short and long production runs, and can produce several hundred products at a time.
Wax and ceramic materials can be reused throughout the precision investment casting process. Used wax gets re-set into gates and risers, and ceramic molds can be re-processed for use in new molds—typically the outer ceramic layers where less precision is required.
