Rapid investment casting is one of the seven casting methods used in our metal foundry. It’s most often used with metals such as aluminum, zinc or stainless steel. It lives up to its name; our metal foundry can ship you pieces from our rapid investment casting process in as little as two days. This is an ideal method to use for prototyping, as you’ll be able to see your pieces and make refinements and alterations to the design and have the piece recast in a very short period of time.
What it Involves
The process involves creating a wax copy of your piece on our 3D wax printing system. Our machine is able to follow even complicated and details CAD designs so you get the level of detail that you need on your piece. The wax model is then coated in a special mixture which is hardened, then the wax is melted out of the inside. This leaves us with a perfect cavity to pour the metal of your choice into, resulting in a perfect metal casting.
