Popularly known as lost-wax casting, Carbon Steel Casting Exporters India is among the oldest recognized metal forming process in India. Such industrial process is usually utilized for small castings. This process is known for producing complicated shapes that are difficult to produce with die casting. 

It is also used for building aluminum and carbon steel castings, aircraft door frames and aircraft engines. Although this process is comparatively expensive than sand casting or die casting process yet it is helpful for creating complicated shapes and intricate designs.

Modern investing castings have come up in leaps and bounds with respect to accuracy as well as features which can be molded. Presently several investment casting foundries have been set up with small and efficient furnaces for enabling the same to cast in nearly all materials one needs. Such castings for short runs and one-off require no tooling and are just apt for producing customer’s prototype metal components.

The process of Investment Castings India is performed by injecting alloys or molten metal in wax designs. Basically, this process is quite complex and involves diverse processes such as Finishing, Grinding, Cooling Cut Off, Metal Melting, High Temp Burnout, Wax Removal, Coating, Pattern Assembly and Mold Making Wax which needs to be prepared with precision and perfection. This process is a no child’s play as it involves freezing cold temperatures and very high temperatures and above all a molten form of metal is also under this process. Generally, such conventional casting process involves the following steps:

  • Producing a master pattern: In which an original pattern created from wax, wood, plastic or another material.
  • Making the mold: Master die mould is prepared for master pattern. Such master die is machine depended.
  • Producing the wax pattern: Wax patterned is produced in 2 different ways: In 1st way wax is poured into mould and than a long process is performed on it. And In 2nd way molten wax is filled the entire mold.
  • Assembling the wax pattern: Many wax patterns are created and combined into one pattern. After some process, Patterns are dressed and given a look like ready product.
  • Investment: Coating, stuccoing, and hardening are repeated until the desired shape is not achieved. And ceramic mould is prepared by process.
  • De-waxing: The ceramic molds are placed into furnace to remove the wax from their surfaces.
  • Burnout and preheat: Barnout heated the mould and to remove the moisture from mould.
  • Pour: Investment mould is poured in one sand filled tub.
  • Removal: Casting is released by hammering, vibrating and by using other removing methods. And finally cleaned up to clean the marks of casting.

Benefits of using Castings in India: 

  • It helps in developing complex and intricate designs
  • It helps in producing near net shaped depending on the customer requirement
  • It requires less machining and surface finishing of the castings
  • This casting process possesses excellent dimensional tolerances
  • An assorted variety of high-performance alloys and metals can be easily investment cast.
