A Beginner’s Guide to Lost Wax Casting

Lost Wax Casting Process

Lost wax casting, with a long history over 5,000 years, has become one of the main casting types in the world. It has evolved to creat lots of complex metal parts used by manufacturers today. Lost wax casting, also known as investment casting, is a process by which a metal casting is designed and created, and is especially known for its near net shape capabilities. The “lost wax” technique is so called because the wax model is destroyed in order…
