Investment casting, also known as lost-wax casting, is a precision casting process used to create complex metal parts with high accuracy and excellent surface finishes.

Advantages of Investment Casting

  • High Precision and Accuracy: Produces intricate shapes with tight tolerances.
  • Excellent Surface Finish: Minimal finishing work required.
  • Versatility in Material Choice: Suitable for a wide range of metals and alloys, including stainless steel, aluminum, and titanium.
  • Complex Geometries: Capable of producing complex parts that would be difficult or impossible to manufacture through other casting methods.
  • Reduced Waste: High material utilization and less machining required.


Investment casting is widely used in various industries, including:

  • Aerospace: Turbine blades, structural components.
  • Automotive: Engine parts, turbocharger components.
  • Medical: Surgical instruments, implants.
  • Defense: Weapon components, ordnance.
  • Industrial: Pumps, valves, and other machinery components.

Given your expertise in precision casting and additive manufacturing, you might find the integration of 3D printing in the pattern creation stage particularly interesting. 3D printing allows for rapid prototyping and complex geometries that are otherwise challenging to achieve with traditional wax pattern methods.Learn more wax 3D printers
