Â¹An Investment casting is a near net shape made by the Âlost waxÂ process that features cast-in-detail, tight tolerances, and excellent surface finish. The term investment refers to the ceramic materials that are used to build a hollow shell into which molten metal is poured to make the casting. Every casting requires a pattern which is wax welded onto a cylindrical shape. The patterns are dipped into a ceramic slurry and coated with a stucco of fine sand. The wax pattern is melted out of the shell and filled with molten metal. The metal castings are finished according to customerÂs specifications.
