What you need to know about Wolfensberger Investment Casting
Wolfensberger AG is specialised in precision casting - an alternative to the conventional investment casting process - and is a preferred steel foundry partner of clients from a wide range of sectors. Where investment casting processes reach their technical boundaries such as possible casting weights or position and shape tolerances the Exacast® precision casting process is able to offer a solution.
What is Wolfensberger investment casting?
Investment casting was developed over 5,500 years ago and is nowadays one of the most widely used casting process in steel foundries. The Ancient Chinese and Egyptians used investment casting to create numerous intricate parts that were used for everyday objects and machinery. Today, investment casting has transformed the way we live. For our investment casting process we use a high-temperature-resistant supporting mould as a load-bearing structure for the casting mould. Between this supporting mould and the pattern a fluid ceramic slurry fills the cavities and reproduces all contours precisely. After removing the mould from the pattern the moulds run through a burning process before filling these hot moulds with molten metal.
You will find further information about the possibilities of our precision casting process on our website. Please contact us directly in case of any question as we are happy to explain the advantages of our precision casting process compared to the conventional investment casting process.
