What is a Casting?

Casting In metalworking, casting means a process, in which liquid metal is poured into a mold that contains a hollow cavity of the desired shape, and then allowed to cool and solidify. The solidified part is also known as a casting, which is ejected or broken out of the mold to complete the process.

Investment casting is a technique for making small, accurate castings in refractory alloys using a mold formed around a pattern of wax or similar material which is then removed by melting also known as the lost wax process.


  • The investment casting process produces an excellent surface finish
  • High dimensional accuracy and no flash or parting lines.
  • Extremely intricate parts can be casted, the process is extremely accurate.
  • Littleor no machining or detailing required.
  • Tight tolerances and thin walls can be achieved through investment casting.
