Almost any metal part can be converted to an investment casting. Conversions generally allow for weight reduction opportunities, reduced machining, elimination of draft angles, and increased design flexibility. Castings can be converted into any alloy, allowing for virtually unlimited mechanical properties.
Candidates for casting conversion include metal parts that are otherwise difficult or impossible to machine, castings with highly complex internal geometries, and expensive alloy types that produce extensive waste using other manufacturing methods.
Depending on part complexity and desired production rate, investment casting is not always the best option. The following comparison guide can help you determine if investment casting conversion is right for you.
