Investment casting, also known as precision casting or lost-wax casting, is one of the most popular casting techniques for manufacturers. It produces precise and very intricate components with high accuracy and tight tolerances, excellent as-cast surface finish and a near-net shape, minimising secondary machining and material waste.
