Investment Casting

Investment casting (also called as the lost-wax process) yields a finely detailed and accurate product. The process is regarded as a precision casting process to fabricate near-net shaped metal parts poured from almost any alloy including: stainless steel, aluminum, brass, bronze and copper. Investment casting gives excellent tolerance, good cast surface finish, excellent cast details and reduced machining.

At Qualitas, we provide the following...

  • Moulding: Lost wax process
  • Furnaces: Induction furnaces, oil fired, heat treatment furnaces for annealing, quench and temper
  • Fettling/Cleaning Equipment: Sand blasting, shot blasting, chemical cleaning, pickling, grinders
  • Testing: Spectrometer, chemical wet analysis, microscope, radiography, x-ray, hardness tests, tensile, impact testing, land testing, mold/core hardness tests, magna-flux crack detector, leak/pressure testing
