Tooling for Investment Casting

Investing casting process is used to manufacturer precision aluminum components like these turbine bladed use in jet engines.Anderson Global provides tooling for investment casting to foundries and advanced manufacturers of precision products and components with tight tolerances or fine finishes. Our precision tooling solutions for investment castings ensure near net shape metal parts with minimal machining, finishing, or surface treatments—saving time, money, and materials. Investment casting solutions are ideal for castings used in sophisticated, high performance products such as jet engines, turbine blades, medical and surgical devices, military ordinance and more. We design and build investment casting tools for production of products from ounces to heavy castings as well as rapid prototypes for low-volume and pilot applications.

About Investment Casting

In the investment casting process, a wax pattern and gating system are assembled and dipped in a slurry of refractory coating material. The pattern is placed upside down, and a molding sand mixture is poured around the pattern. The mold is placed in an inverted position and heated. A set temperature is maintained in the mold for pouring the alloy and preserving intricate casting designs. When the wax melts out, the void space is filled with molten metal and a burnout process helps remove the wax and gas-forming material in the mold.
