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…

Stainless Steel Investment Casting for Butterfly Valve Body & Disc

stainless steel investment casting for butterfly valve body

A butterfly valve is a shut-off valve with a relatively simple construction. In closed position, the disc blocks the valve bore while in open position, the disc is turned to allow flow. A quarter turn takes the valve from fully open to fully closed position, or opposite, and thus the butterfly valve allows for quick opening and closure. Compared to other types of valves, butterfly valves have the advantages of simple construction, not taking up too much space, the light…

Stainless Steel Casting for Stirrup

Stainless Steel Casting for Stirrup

A stirrup is a light frame that holds the foot when riding a horse. Stirrups are usually paired and are used to aid in mounting and as a support while using a riding horse. They greatly increase the rider’s ability to stay in the saddle and control the mount, increasing the horse’ usefulness to humans in areas such as communication, transportation and warfare. Early stirrups were mainly made by iron, while modern stirrups (such as safety stirrups, ide-saddle stirrups, ect)…

How A Stainless Steel Casting Foundry Works?

How A Stainless Steel Casting Foundry Works

The foundation of any stainless steel casting company is its stainless steel foundry, which is where the stainless steel casting process takes place. This refers to the process of “investing” a pattern with refractory materials, molding from among many different stainless steel casting grades to create precision castings. For each stainless steel casting made by a stainless steel casting company, there is a general process that is followed to ensure quality, cost-effectiveness, and consistency. This process should be watched over…
