Industrial investment casting process
The process that must be followed to obtain a good product is effective is all
its steps are rigorously followed, such as is the case with investment casting
or lost wax casting. The steps this industrial process follows have a set duration
that must not be shortened nor lengthened.
During the casting cycle, there are a number of diverse and atypical factors
that intervene, such as liquid solids (plastic waxes, silicas, water, binders),
temperature, physical and chemical elements (oxygen, argon, helium, borax),
mechanical processes and metals that are centrifuged, pressed, absorbed
and finally cooled.
Controlling and monitoring these processes is a complex task that requires
the most sophisticated methods and equipment available. All these considerations
shed light upon the complex nature of the investment casting industrial process.
