Even though the investment casting is an industrially fully developed process, its limits have been pushed during the last years towards producing larger and more complex pieces compared to the last decades.  The following image shows the market positioning and development tendency of investment casting:  On the one hand, larger production volumes are being outsourced more

What is additive manufacturing?  Additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing or rapid prototyping, is the fabrication of metal parts by using a 3D model and applying several layers of material to it.  Fabricating metal parts through additive manufacturing has become one of the most interesting technologies of the sector throughout the last decade –

Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) is a suitable technology to fabricate small or medium-sized pieces with complex geometry. A variety of materials can be used (stainless steels, low-alloy steels, soft magnetic, tooling steel or ceramic materials). MIM combines the technique and versatility of plastic injection with sintering in order to fabricate metal pieces with high density

Investment Casting

Investment casting is among the oldest industrial manufacturing processes still being applied today. Its history can be traced back to 4,000 BC. At this time, bee wax and other animal greases were used instead of synthetic waxes employed today. Samples of sculptures crafted with investment casting have been found in Europe, Asia, Africa, and South
