Improve Investment Casting for Aerospace Parts Manufacturing

  • 3D Printed Pattern for Investment Casting
  • Create Stronger, More Reliable Patterns

    Our 3D-printed hollow casting patterns are strong enough to support parts during manufacturing. While durable, these patterns can still collapse under their own expansion, and their unique material and design allow for complete drainage.

  • Complex design for investment casting
  • Build Complex Design Features More Easily

    With greater design freedom and economy, you can produce incredibly complex casting patterns. Aerospace parts designers can also consolidate shapes to reduce component weight and assembly costs.

  • Reduce Lead Time with Investment Casting
  • Reduce Lead Time

    Avoid the time and expense of using machine injection molding tools for casting patterns. Our tool-less casting pattern production allows you to create patterns for aerospace component manufacturing faster. In many cases, you can go from CAD model to low volumes of final casted parts within 48 hours.
