Investment Casting Materials and Industries

Download to read offline

Investment casting, also known as lost wax casting, offers major advantages compared to other processes, such as: tighter dimensional tolerances than sand casting, lower per-piece costs over long production runs vs. machining, far greater precision and accuracy than metal fabrication, shorter lead times than die casting and lower tooling costs vs. forging.

Investment casting is suitable to a wide variety of materials and industries. To learn more, contact Avalon Precision Metalsmiths at 216-362-4100.

Investment Casting Materials and Industries

  1. 1. Investment Casting Materials and Industries Avalon Precision Metalsmiths 15583 Brookpark Road Cleveland, OH 44142 www.avalon-castings.com
  2. 2. Investment Casting Defined We have over 75 years’ experience in precision investment casting, also known as lost wax casting. Compared to other processes, investment casting offers major advantages, such as: • Tighter dimensional tolerances than sand casting • Lower per-piece costs over long production runs vs. machining • Far greater precision and accuracy than metal fabrication • Shorter lead times than die casting • Lower tooling costs vs. forging
  3. 3. Value Added In addition to our ISO 9001:2008 and AS9100 certification, we also possess a wide range of expertise to ensure the manufacture and delivery of the precision cast components that our customers have come to expect. Our services include: • Machining, polishing and grinding • Off-shore casting capabilities • Assembly and NDT services • Supply chain management • Rapid prototyping • Design and build for all internal tooling • Low- and high-volume production • Vacuum assist technology • In-house heat treat
  4. 4. Materials Investment casting can be used to produce a wide variety of precision components from many alloys and metals, including: • Stainless steel • Carbon steel • Aluminum • Brass and bronze • Special alloys
  5. 5. Stainless Steel A steel alloy with a minimum of 10.5% chromium content by mass, stainless steel is highly corrosion resistant and wear resistant, provides excellent machinability, and is well-known for its aesthetic appearance. As one of the industry’s leading stainless steel casting companies, we design and manufacture a wide range of custom stainless steel parts, such as: • Ball valve components • Steam trap components • Poultry processing components • Complete hinge assemblies • Parts for agricultural implements
  6. 6. Carbon Steel A popular material for a wide range of applications, carbon steel is inexpensive, readily available in numerous grades, and can be heat-treated to improve its strength, ductility, and machinability. We pour a variety of alloys to create custom carbon steel investment-casted components including: • Door locks and internal lock mechanisms • Critical parts for the mining and transportation industries, among others
  7. 7. Aluminum Well-known for its high strength-to-weight ratio, aluminum can be heat treated to achieve greater strength, ductility, corrosion resistance, and machinability. During aluminum investment casting, we use resistance melting and extensive de-gassing methods to pour aluminum in NDT levels up to Class 1,Grade A (Grade B for production) to produce components like: • Heat Sinks • Valves • Medical Devices • Levers
  8. 8. Brass and Bronze Both brass and bronze exhibit excellent machinability and corrosion resistance, are non-sparking, lack magnetism and provide unique wear characteristics and aesthetics. We provide tight tolerances and exceptional part-to-part repeatability for brass and bronze investment-casted parts, including: • Impellers • Door handles and complete hinge assemblies • Pump components
  9. 9. Special Alloys Pouring more specialty alloys than any other investment casting company in the industry today, we manufacture components for the fluid power, oil and gas, marine technology, food and dairy, and aerospace industries among others, using a wide range of alloys, including: • Inconel • Monel • Chrome-cast iron • Hastelloy • Cobalt • Nitronic® 50 • Copper • "Beryllium Copper" • Duplex stainless 2205 • Tool Steel
