Investment Casting for Stainless Steel Bottle Opener

A bottle opener is a common device in our daily life that can quickly remove metal bottle caps from glass bottles. To resist rust, stainless steel is used as the material. Investment casting can produce stainless steel bottle openers in different types, including crown cork bottle opener, wall-mounted bottle opener, etc.

Investment casting is a lost wax precision casting process can be thought of as the melting and flowing of stainless steel into molds of virtually any net shape, to produce a near net shape stainless steel bottle opener once cooled. Comparing this to the widely accepted practice of machining bottle opener from solid raw stock, where material is REMOVED to get to the net end shape, and all of the problems associated with that, this is a very simple way to visualize just how much sense it makes to consider investment casting for cost effective manufacturing of different bottle openers.

CFS’ investment casting offers many advantages, by utilizing this single process to produce stainless steel bottle openers, often originally conceived to be manufactured in ways that were either too costly or too restrictive in terms of design elements. Investment cast stainless steel bottle opener takes on a unique characteristic unattainable by other processes, due primarily to our using die injected wax shapes as patterns. This allows us to obtain the detail and accuracy of bottle opener made by injection molding, usually reserved for low melting point metals, but in fact made from stainless steel. This is because of the unique formation of a seamless ceramic shell built around the precision wax shapes. The ceramic shell holds the shape of these wax geometries at extremely high temperatures while the molten metal, poured into the shells, solidifies into bottle openers.
