Signicast pours a wide variety of parts, weighing anywhere from a few ounces to as much as 250 pounds.
What as-cast tolerances can investment casting achieve?
The investment casting process is capable of excellent repeatability. As-cast process capability of +/- three standard deviations when a single point location is repeatedly measured is typically +/- .003 to +/- .004 per inch. However, tolerance capability is largely influenced by part configuration. Symmetrical shapes with uniform wall sections will solidify with much less variation and distortion than non-symmetrical, non-uniform shapes.
