Getting Started


The design and manufacture of investment cast components is a complex process and has traditionally been carried out by designers and manufacturers undertaking their activities as discrete processes. This caused many problems in the past, where the required design is difficult to manufacture, needing costly and time consuming modifications during the part production. Castings Technology International has made efforts to resolve this situation by establishing a ‘Casting Design’ bureau. Experienced Signicast casting engineers are available to identify the requirements of designers and bring them together with the castings producers. This list of ‘Ten Commandments’ represents a summary of the major factors which a designer should consider when designing an investment casting component.
