Steel investment casting is a one of the oldest metal-forming techniques, dating back to the times of the ancient Egyptians and the ancient Harappans in India. Original investment casting techniques were performed using beeswax and clay, but today’s investment casting manufacturers use more sophisticated techniques to create smooth, intricate forms in less time.

One of the most significant advances in investment casting is the creation of rapid drying chambers. These chambers reduce the time it takes to complete the layering process, which used to take several days. Because the new drying chambers allow the investment casting manufacturer to create layered castings more quickly, the process is more efficient, has shorter lead times and features decreased cost per casting. As technologies advance, the casting process will become even faster and more efficient.
