Stainless Steel Investment Castings

Table of Contents

Stainless steel investment casting is a precision casting process based on the lost wax method, in which the mold is made by covering the model in a ceramic shell and then melting the wax model at high temperatures. Subsequently, molten stainless steel is injected into the shell, and after cooling and solidification, the desired metal part is finally obtained.

Stainless steel investment casting Process

  1. Model Making: First, a wax model of the part to be cast is made. This can be done through hand engraving, CAD design and 3D printing.
  2. Model coating: Dip the wax model into a ceramic slurry to form a ceramic shell. This process requires multiple coatings and dryings to form a strong shell.
  3. Wax model melting: Place the ceramic shell in a high-temperature furnace to completely melt and flow out the wax model, leaving a cavity to form an empty shell of the wax model.
  4. Casting: Inject molten stainless steel or other alloy materials into the empty shell of the wax model, filling the entire cavity.
  5. Cooling and solidification: Once the metal filling is complete, the ceramic shell cools and hardens, forming a solid casting.
  6. Shelling and post-processing: Finally, the ceramic shell is removed from the casting and subjected to trimming, polishing and other post-processing steps to bring the final product up to design requirements.
