Advantages of Investment Casting

  • Many Intricate forms with undercuts can be cast.
  • A very smooth surface is obtained with no parting line.
  • Dimensional accuracy is good.
  • Certain unmachinable parts can be cast to preplanned shape.
  • It may be used to replace die-casting where short runs are involved.
  • near-net-shape configurations, offering designers and engineers freedom of design in a wide range of alloys.
  • Costly machining operations are reduced
  • Several parts can be made as one casting, reducing handling, assembly and inspection costs.
  • Splines, holes, bosses, lettering, serrations and even some threads can be cast.
