Investment Casting
 

Product description:

Inthe Investment Casting (lost wax) process a mold is created by repeatedlydipping a sprued pattern in ceramic slurry, which builds up a shell around itthat hardens. The mold is subsequently autoclaved (steamed) and/ or heated toeliminate the pattern. Finally, molten metal is poured into the cavity where itsolidifies. Once the cast object has cooled, the shell is broken and removedfrom the part. The key advantage of this process is its ability to producecomplex metal parts quickly and inexpensively without hard tooling.
