Precision casting (sometimes called lost-wax casting) is often the best available method for creating intricate parts and components. In industries where precision can mean the difference between life and death, customers count on Laszeray to provide the investment casting tools they need.
A leader among precision casting manufacturers, Laszeray offers you its services and years of experience as a world-class designer and manufacturer of high-quality custom tooling for the aerospace sector. We are a leading producer of tooling used to manufacture 3-D blades and vanes for the aerospace investment casting industry. In addition, we serve other industries where precisely fabricated parts and components are vital, including the medical, electronics, oil & gas, agricultural, and automotive sectors.
Investment casting is a time-honored manufacturing process that can create components of virtually any level of complexity at tight tolerances. The investment casting coating process involves dipping a wax pattern into ceramic slurry to form a mold. From there, the wax is melted out and molten metal is poured inside. Once the metal has solidified, the mold is removed.
Whether you need to produce a tiny 1 oz. part or a large item weighing 20 pounds or more, investment casting gets the job done reliably, and at a reasonable price. As a manufacturing process, it’s flexible enough to produce large runs of a given part or just a few. In many cases, investment casting is the only truly cost-effective method of manufacturing a certain part or component.
Investment casting provides other production advantages as well, including:
- Affordability – Investment casting tooling does not require expensive equipment.
- Wide range of materials – Many ferrous and non-ferrous metals and alloys can be used in the investment casting process.
- Shorter lead times – Overall labor is sharply reduced with investment casting.
Our in-house talent, advanced equipment, and unique knowledge provide significant advantages to those working with us. We offer everything from rapid prototype investment casting for businesses that need to test a product design to medical investment castings for healthcare facilities that demand precision-crafted tools. We pride ourselves on being one of the leading investment casting companies around. Feel free to contact us for additional info on our investment casting tooling capabilities.
LASZERAY’S SYSTEMS INCLUDE:
• Automated Butterfly Dies
Wax Injection Tooling
Wax injection molding is the process of casting wax products. First, molten wax is injected into a hollow casing called a “cavity.” The cavity is chilled until the wax has cooled and is solidified. Then the wax is carefully removed from the cavity.
With industry-standard bits, dies, taps, and other tools for creating common features in parts or part-specific mold tools, industry standard cut features can be included without spending the time and money needed for custom solutions.
Gate Parts Molds
Each injection mold design requires a gate to allow the molten plastic injection. Gate types can have a variety of effects on the parts, including part appearance, part dimensions, gate removal, and remaining material.
Multi-Pull and Straight Pull Tooling
Multi-Pull molds allow multiple products to be formed in one cycle, while straight pull molds form a single product per cycle. We have the tooling to produce both types of mold.
