ABT produces custom designed castings for industrial use according to ASME, ASTM and
ISO standards. With advanced technology, rich experience, and mass production capability, we are
able to offer cost-effective castings of the highest quality.

Investment Casting

Investment Casting Process
Castings are produced by surrounding or investing an expendable pattern (Wax, Sodium Silicate,
Silica Sol, etc) with a refractory slurry coating. The pattern is removed through the use of heat prior
to filling the mold with liquid metal. ABT integrates product and mold design, mass production
and after-cast precision machining.

Investment Castings have several advantages over other manufacturing processes.
• Extensive range of raw materials
• Complicated structure
• Good surface finish
• Tight tolerance
