Investment casting

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.

01.
Reduces costs and production time by as much as 90%
Investment casting with the addition of 3D printed casting patterns reduces costs and production time by as much as 90%.
02.
Variety of sizes
With our 3D printing capabilities, Quickparts produces investment castings for a variety of sizes, both for large parts and small, intricate parts.
03.
Wide range of alloys
Investment casting allows your parts to be created from a wide range of alloys, even some that are more difficult to machine and process by other manufacturing means.

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.
