3D printing technology has the advantage of saving manufacturing time, reducing costs and not being limited by model complexity. It has become one of the most popular manufacturing technology.What benefits can 3D printing technology bring to investment casting?

Economical production: The investment casting model is printed layer by layer, without complicated and expensive mold opening.

Large format printing: Large molds can be printed on a platform with a forming size of 1,000 x 600 x 500 mm.

Fast availability: delivery can be done within 3 working days as soon as possible.

Complex components: almost unlimited geometric shapes.

Sophisticated model: derived from a layer thickness of 150 microns and a print resolution of up to 600 dpi.

High dimensional accuracy: no thermal deformation-even in large-scale 3D investment mold manufacturing applications.

Suitable for investment casting: the residual ash content is very low and generally does not expand during the combustion process, and the investment does not damage the ceramic shell (no shell damage).

Smooth surface: Use wax infiltration to ensure the smooth surface of investment casting parts or use epoxy resin to increase the strength of the mold.
