A great way to reduce your costs and increase your productivity
The Investment Casting (lost wax) Process
”@
”@ 1. Die Design---
Consider gate, injection, wax shrinkage”Ktechnical condition to design a die.
”@
”@ 2. Tool Building---
Build an aluminum alloy die by machining.
”@
”@ 3. Wax Injection---
Wax is injected into a die to produce a pattern.
”@
”@ 4. Pattern Assembly---
Pattern are glued to wax runner bars, this assembly is referred to as a tree.
”@
”@ 5. Dipping---
Dip the tree into a slurry to build up a ceramic shell.
”@
”@ 6. Shell Building---
After several coats of slurry and sand, a ceramic shell is built on the wax tree.
”@
”@ 7. Dewax Operation---
Wax is removed from the mold in a steam autoclave.
”@
”@ 8. Preheat---
Fire the ceramic molds.
”@
”@ 9. Casting---
Pour molten metal into the preheated ceramic molds.
”@
”@ 10. Breakout---
When metal has cooled, ceramic shell is broken off by vibration or water blasting.
”@
”@ 11. Cut off / Finish---
Cut the parts away from the tree, gat
