Lost Wax Casting is also known as investment casting.It can produce complicated shapes that would be difficult or impossible by normal manufacturing techniques. Parts made with investment castings often do not require any further machining, because of the close tolerances that can be achieved. It's the process by which a metal (such as silver, gold, brass or bronze) sculpture is cast from an artist's sculpture. In industrial uses, the modern process is called investment casting. An ancient practice, the process today varies from foundry to foundry, but the steps which are usually used in casting small bronze sculptures in a modern bronze foundry are generally quite standardized. The origins of the lost wax process are shrouded in antiquity, but it has been used for thousands of years to produce objects in metal which could not be produced any other way, due to the complexity of their form. It permits anything that can be modelled in wax to be faithfully transmuted into metal, and is still used today for certain industrial parts, dental restorations, fine jewelry, and sculpture.
Process of Lost Wax Casting (Investment Casting):
The lost wax casting is a process that uses molds to kind liquefied metals. during this process, liquefied metals are shaped into higher quality products that are designed of a lot of completely different types of metals. because lost wax casting often results in tough finishes, additional methods may be required to get rid of burrs from the end products. During lost wax casting, a extraordinary wax is injected into a metal die, producing designs that are compiled into a cluster close to a wax runner system. after the pattern is coated with layers of refractory material, it is then heated to get rid of the wax. once the wax is removed, the hot mold is cast. after cooling, the mold is removed through the use of vibration, higher pressure water blasting, impact, grit blasting, or chemical dissolution.
We adds value in the process through:
1. Fluent technical communication in English. In our experience, most foundries in China need a lot of help in this area.
2. We provide an extra layer of quality control for you. For example, we run independent chemical composition and mechanical strength analysis.
3. We also have CNC machining expertise/ resources that many foundries lack.
