Investment Casting Animation

Investment casting includes the following steps:

  • Parts are first molded in wax
  • The runner is moved and multiple parts are attached to a wax runner
  • The wax parts are dipped in a wet ceramic slurry. The “mold” become thicker and thicker
  • After drying, the wax is removed leaving the ceramic mold
  • The ceramic mold is then heated to a temperature of around 1,000 C
  • Molten metal is then poured into the hot ceramic mold
  • Wait until the mold cools
  • The ceramic mold is then broken by vibration
  • Individual parts are cut from the runner
  • Now we have accurate parts
