Do you know the introduction to lost wax casting?

Lost wax casting process in modern times is evolved from the ancient casting process.In the late Neolithic period,China's ancient artisans widely used the lost wax casting in the bronze manufacture. And now Lost Wax Casting is also known as investment casting.It can produce complicated shapes that would be difficult or impossible by normal manufacturing techniques. Parts made with investment castings often do not require any further machining, because of the close tolerances that can be achieved.

Introduction of Lost Wax Casting:

It is generally used for small castings are made from almost any metal, especially stainless steel.

This process generally more expensive per unit than die casting or sand casting but with lower tooling cost. It can produce complicated shapes that would be difficult or impossible by normal manufacturing techniques. Parts made with investment castings often do not require any further machining, because of the close tolerances that can be achieved.

Advantages of Lost Wax Casting:

1. Excellent surface finish

2. High dimensional accuracy

3. Extremely intricate parts are castable

4. Almost any metal can be cast

5. No flash or parting lines

Types of Lost Wax CastingSodium Silicate Investment Casting (Water Glass Also Called Sodium Silicate):

1. The coasting bond brushed on the pattern surface is water glass in this process.

2. Compared with the sand castings, Parts madewith lost wax casting(water glass) have better surface quality (surface roughness to 12.5 microns) and higher dimensional accuracy.

Silica Sol Investment Casting:

1. The coasting bond brushed on the pattern surface is silica sol in this process.

2. Parts made with lost wax casting(silica sol) have the tolerances are 0.1 mm for the first 25 mm (0.005 in for the first inch) and 0.02 mm for the each additional centimeter (0.002 in for each additional inch).

3. A standard surface finish is 1.3–4 microns (50–125 μin). Compared with the water glass process, Parts made with lost wax casting(silica sol) have betterexcellent surface finish and higher dimensional accuracy.
