Investment Casting Foundry

Investment casting is process makes casting of particularly complex parts, with good finishing surface. And it is complicated process also. Investment Casting is a manufacturing Process that is used to produce a great variety of components for a wide range of industries. The investment casting process is also known as the “Lost Wax Process” due to the role that wax has to play in the casting process.



Investment casting is oldest manufacturing processes, before thousands of years, in which melt metal is in into an expendable ceramic mould. The mould is shaped by using a wax pattern - a disposable piece in the shape of the required part.

In Process of lost wax Investment casting make use of mostly metals, most usually using aluminium Material, bronze Materials, magnesium Materials, cast iron, steel, and tool steel. This process of investment casting is beneficial for casting metals with high melt temperatures that cannot be melded in plaster or metal.

Aluminium Investment Casting

As the Demands continue to rise for lightweight designs in the automotive industry and many aerospace and defence components, Turbo Cast (India) has recently added aluminium casting to its portfolio of Lost Wax Process solutions. More & more casting Process is making effective use of aluminium as a metal as it is not only Superior Quality but also offers low cost Product Ratio as well as are light in weight.


Aluminium castings presently find application in a wide range of much application like automotive Industries, Defence segment, Medical Segment and Aerospace and Space Shuttles and Satellites, power plant and electrical associated industries. With present amenities of modern Investment Casting foundry, pattern making shop & machining shop as well as arrangements for heat treatment & ultra-sonic tests also helps us to improve quality of aluminium castings everyday and timely deliver to our valued customers.

Defence Investment Casting

Turbo Cast (India) Manufacturing high quality aluminium castings for the defence Components. Our castings for are used on the Warrior fighting vehicle, Military and Defence Casting. Defence castings are long-lasting and superior Quality, yet also moderately lightweight. As a result, they are ideal for use in military vehicles and defence components. They are strong enough to ensure years of reliable use, yet their lightweight qualities ensure that the tanks remain as swift and as manoeuvrable as possible.


The type of Defence casting technique we use when working with clients in the defence industry will depend on the size of the required component, and its intended use. For larger components in which long-lasting and superior Quality is our motto, we will use the air set sand technique.

Investment Casting Process

Investment Casting is a manufacturing method that is used to produce a great variety of components for a wide range of industries. The process is sometimes referred to as the “Lost Wax Process” due to the role that wax has to play in the casting process.

1. STAGE 1:

The first stage of the Investment Casting process is to produce an exact replica (or “pattern”) of the required casting. This is made by injecting wax into a die. Aluminium dies are used, which are economical to make and easily modified if design changes are required. Loose pieces may be used to form any undercuts and internal detail.

2. STEP 2:

The wax pattern is assembled onto a wax feeder system. Each assembly or “tree” may have just one large pattern or many small patterns.


3. STEP 3:

The wax assembly is dipped by a large robot into a high-grade ceramic slurry. This stage is known as the investment stage – the part of the process from which the production method gets its name.

4. STEP 4:

Whilst the assembly is still wet, larger particles of ceramic are dropped onto its surface. This is done to build up a thicker coating. After drying, this coating process (or “investment” process) is repeated several times, building a shell mould thickness of approximately 10mm.

5. STEP 5:

After the final shell mould is dried, the wax is melted out in a steam autoclave (hence why the process is sometimes referred to as the “lost wax process”. The moulds are fired at over 1000°C to remove any remaining wax and to strengthen the mould.

5. STEP 6:

Molten metal is poured into the moulds, whilst they are still hot, enabling the metal to run into thin wall sections.

6. STEP 7:

After cooling, the ceramic shell mould is broken away and the casting is cut away from the feeder system.

6. STEP 8:

The castings are carefully fettled, blasted and heat treated. Setting operations may also be required. Material testing, x-ray, dye penetrant testing or machining can then be carried out, if this is required.
