Investment casting has been a reliable manufacturing technique for centuries, but 3D printing has recently accelerated the process.
You need a reliable and experienced team of additive manufacturers to make sure your investment casting project is completed to your standards and on your timeline.
How it Works
Investment casting, also known as lost-wax casting, involves creating a wax pattern that is then coated with a liquid ceramic layer and then a dry ceramic layer, which is then dried in environmentally controlled conditions. This shell is then filled with molten metal, which cools and solidifies into the desired part.
Through 3D printing and additive manufacturing techniques, Quickparts has drastically reduced the time and effort needed for investment casting. With two key 3D printing materials–SLA plastic and wax–that are fully industry-tested, your casting patterns can be completed in days or a couple of weeks, with little to no restriction on the size of the cast part.
