Our Approach to Investment Casting
At Nu-Cast, we utilize a proprietary shell system to provide a near net shape component with the lost-wax investment casting process.
Each casting is manufactured using wax patterns made from hard tooling for production requirements or by Quick Cast SLA patterns for R & D prototypes and short run projects. The tooling and SLA patterns to produce these castings are generated directly from your electronic CAD data and blueprints. The end result is a near net shape part that will minimize the secondary operations necessary to complete your project.
Why Investment Casting Might be Ideal for Your Product
Investment casting can produce intricate shapes with virtually any alloy. When compared to other casting processes, lost wax casting provides a superior surface finish and a reduced reliance on secondary finishing when compared to sand castings, forgings, or welded fabrications.
