Investment casting is the process of pouring hot and melted metal into a cast mold to create a part or product. Investment casting is one of the most reliable methods used for forming detailed parts of metal pieces, and is often used to create delicate machine parts used in vehicles and manufacturing processes. However, sometimes basic investment casting is not detailed enough to complete the job. This is where precision casting comes into the picture. Precision casting is aided by computers and detailed machinery to create the most detailed metal parts and pieces possible.
Precise casting provides many benefits to the end user of the product, including:
Customization: In precision or investment casting, it is easy to customize the part in creation. All the customer has to do is submit a prototype of the part and the casting company can create an exact cast complete down to the last detail.
Accuracy: Accuracy in casting is essential to any high-quality piece. Without a high amount of accuracy, the part will not fit the intended use. Precision-style casting is one of the best ways to create highly detailed and accurate parts that will not have issues that can interrupt the design of the piece.
Cost effective: Precise casting eliminates the need for additional finishing processes, like grinding, polishing, or machining. This can give customers a huge advantage in prices, which improves customer opinion about your company.
Labor and cost saving: When you can complete a custom parts order with just a few steps, you can save big on the costs of manufacturing the part. It takes fewer people to complete a precise investment casting model and when less people are involved, the process is much less expensive. Investment casting can also save on order processing times, which customers love.
