How to Prevent Shrinkage Defect in Stainless Steel Investment Casting?

There may exist several defects in stainless steel investment casting process and shrinkage is the biggest problem that may occur during the production of casting in stainless steel. After the shell is cleaned in the early stage of the casting, the obvious shrinkage can be seen, and the slight shrinkage is only found after pickling & passivation (at first, the color is green and then yellow after a while). The unconspicuous defects are invisible from the surface with the naked…

Stainless Steel Investment Casting Cost

Stainless Steel Investment Casting Cost

The stainless steel investment casting process can be divided into four stages: wax patterns manufacturing, shell making, smelting pouring and post-processing. We collect the inspection, equipment maintenance and other costs for these four stages into auxiliary production costs. In the four production processes, the costs incurred in the three stages (wax patterns manufacturing, shell making, smelting and pouring) are closely related to the production rate of the process. For example, if the manufacturing cost of wax patterns is calculated according…

Differences Between 304 and 316 Stainless Steel Castings

Differences Between 304 and 316 Stainless Steel Castings

When designing a metal component with investment casting process, many people would like to select stainless steel as the casting material for its exceptional resistance to corrosion. 304 and 316 are the two of the most widely used stainless steel casting grades in the world. Selecting the most optimal grade for stainless steel investment casting can mean longer lasting performance, especially in challenging corrosive environments. For 304 and 316 stainless steels, the presence of molybdenum is mainly what makes them…
