The Process of Casting


The Investment Casting Process commences with the production of High Quality Wax Patterns from Aluminium Injection
Tooling. These are then mounted onto a wax runner system and the assembled mould is coated several times with ceramic material and air-dried.

On completion, the mould is de-waxed leaving an empty shell which is subsequently fired and filled with molten metal. The shell is then allowed to cool and removed.
Castings are cut from the riser/runner system, linished, heat treated (when required), straightened, sand blasted and passed through to quality control for a rigid Inspection Programme.
